Addiction can come in many different forms, and often prove detrimental to the lives of its victims. Despite the most earnest efforts, it is incredibly challenging to conquer addiction and the problems that accompany it. The fight against addiction is a battle that is never meant to be fought alone. Ryan Montgomery, the CEO of Boca Recovery Center, has always made an effort to help those in need of assistance. Amongst his many initiatives, he offers scholarships to struggling addicts to help them get back on their feet.

Only a handful of people know the treacherous path that recovering drug addicts face. Montgomery faced drug addiction as a teenager. He mustered the courage to rise above it and became a reputed serial entrepreneur, ethical hacker, internet marketer, and software developer. He then made it his mission to help other addicts fight their demons. This culminated in the establishment of the Boca Recovery Center. Its primary objective? To help people turn their lives around and build towards a brighter future. Ryan continues to provide scholarships to people who are on the road to recovery.

Not only does it help them cope with their immediate issues, but it opens a sea of opportunities for them to pursue when the time comes. Ryan explained further, “I’ve faced my demons and managed to pull myself together. That isn’t always the case, and I knew I had to do something to help people. Scholarships for recovering addicts can be a boon that helps steer their lives in the right direction. I consider it a privilege to be able to lend them aid in this manner.”

Ryan was a bright-minded fellow from the very beginning. He began learning about computers from an early age of ten and gradually built a reputation in the hacking community. Using his abilities, he was able to create exploits to manipulate computer systems. His foray into internet marketing was hugely successful. Along the way, Ryan developed a drug addiction. Fortunately, he got his act together and became widely successful in various avenues. Today he is a Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) and Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP) with a penchant for internet marketing and software development. His journey has made him who he is today and galvanized his resolve to help those around him.

Ryan hopes that his journey would inspire others to do the same, especially those who are making an effort to sober up. He spends a great deal of time working with addicts, structuring their programs, and helping them improve upon themselves. Despite having achieved a great deal of success in multiple avenues, Ryan continues to stay grounded and focused on assisting people in following in his footsteps towards a brighter tomorrow.
