In early 2013 John had a vision and helped found the ARCHway Institute for Addictive Diseases and Co-Existing Mental Health Disorders. The organization believes in recovery from the disease of addiction. ARCHway has two basic missions. The first is to change the stigma associated with this disease through bringing awareness and educating individuals, families and communities about the disease. The second is to raise money to be used as scholarships for those who want to be in a recovery program but currently are turned away due to financial barriers.
John also joined ARCA Midwest in the summer of 2013 which is based in St Louis, Missouri. ARCA is a MAT Recovery Center.
