Dan Repetti

Business Development

Originally from Red Bank, New Jersey, Dan made the move to Florida for treatment. He credits his college roommates, whom already found sobriety in Florida, with helping him take the leap of faith to better his life. After achieving sobriety himself, Dan was introduced to a career in the substance abuse industry by a mentor. “At the time, no one would take a chance on me, but he did.”, recalling his mentor. Eventually, his mentor offered him a position as the operations manager of a male sober living home. From that moment on, Dan knew that a career in the substance abuse industry was his destiny.
Serving as a member Daylight Recovery Center’s Business Development team, Dan earned his bachelor’s degree in Communication and Marketing from Sacred Heart University. He states, “Addicts are some of the strongest people because they have been through life experiences no person should have to go through, and with perseverance, they come out survivors on the other side.” His work life has taught him to never judge a book by its cover. “There’s nothing better than seeing someone smile for the first time in a very long time.”, Dan recalls of past patients. Indeed, it sounds like he has found a career that gives him both purpose and passion. During his free time, Dan can be found at the beach, as he uses surfing as an outlet when he needs time for himself. He also enjoys getting together with “the fellas” to play softball.
