More about Kirk Driskell

Kirk, an Atlanta businessman, philanthropist, and entrepreneur, is celebrating 10,000 days of freedom in recovery in September, 2022.

Millions of people from all over the world, including Kirk Driskell, have found freedom and long-term recovery by living “one day at a time” and the 12-Step Program.

10,000 days of sustained recovery from addiction is a milestone few dare to dream. The thought of how to live a life of sobriety was overwhelming for 20-year-old Kirk Driskell when he emerged from rehab in 1995. His only plan: attend an AA meeting. 

Kirk’s first AA meeting would eventually turn into thousands of meetings over his 10,000 days of sobriety. The combination of meetings, support from the recovery community, and living out the teachings of the 12-Step Program would be what Kirk needed to live what he calls an “epic life” for over 27 years. 

Driskell is a husband, father of three, serial entrepreneur, and philanthropist. An outspoken advocate for living a life of faith, service, and recovery, Kirk has served in many roles through Rotary International, including that of President of the Rotary Club of Alpharetta and District Governor of Rotary District 6900.

Kirk invested in his first recovery house as a way to give back and serve a need for safe, temporary, affordable shelter for men in recovery. Culture and mindset—born of faith and community–would soon emerge from these humble beginnings and form the foundation for Vision Warriors.
