Founder & CEO
Eric started working in his family’s businesses at young age, under the guidance of his father, in the New Hampshire logging and excavation industry. He became very focused on his professional development, and very quickly he proved himself as a successful entrepreneur. The only problem was that he had also developed a severe active addiction.
After many treatment programs and chronic relapsing, Eric found meaningful recovery by taking the 12 steps at age 21. This life-changing experience instilled in him a deep passion for helping young men have the same experience and Eric founded The Granite House in 2008. This project became his primary career path, and within 5 years The Granite House had expanded to a 12-step centered, three-phase extended care program and a supporting clinical program. A hands-on executive, Eric leads the day-to-day operations of The Granite House, including facilitating a Big Book Workshop offered to clients 5 days per week.
