In 1989 Greg committed a crime that would send him to prison for 3 & 1/2 years. It was there that he made a first real and sincere attempt to consider sobriety as a way of life.
Somewhere inside, a spark of hope developed that would eventually help him to reconsider the value of his life and add purpose and meaning to it. His road to recovery began inside the walls of that prison, with the programs of N.A. and A.A. He acquired his G.E.D.and two years of college there and was valedictorian of his class. After his release, he graduated from Miami University with a Bachelor's Degree in Social Services, specializing in drug and alcohol counseling. Greg worked with hundreds of addicts over the course of 20 years. His no nonsense approach, with a loving spoonful of Tough Love helped and inspired countless men and women to the path of recovery. It is our opinion that Greg Cox exemplified recovery so strongly that it was only natural that this house memorialize his life and recovery.
