Prior to his own personal recovery, Saul found himself battling his way through daily life. Unable to properly gain control of any one piece of his life, he found substances that would mask the pain for short intervals. Suffering from his own consequences of addiction, Saul Kane was faced with a choice - a choice to either go on to the bitter end or find recovery. With only the slightest bit of hope that he might be able to get a grip on his life again, Saul entered into a 12 step program of recovery while homeless.
He spent the first year of his recovery cooperating with what others suggested to him. Saul set everything aside to focus on the 12 steps by going to meetings, obtaining a sponsor and ultimately finding a Solution through the steps and the sponsoring of other men. In so doing, he breached from his old attitudes, actions and behaviors and began to transform into a man of service to his fellow addicts.
Saul has spent several years in the field of social betterment. Beginning in therapeutic foster homes, he spent 6 years as a foster parent to children who otherwise had been forgotten. In these facilities, Saul was able to obtain his M.A.P.P. (masters approach to positive parenting) for foster care in addition to certification in PCM (Personal Crisis Management.)
Saul has spent several years developing and implementing new formats to rectify prior failing systems in existing sober living facilities around Palm Beach County. He is the cofounder of ACHIEVE Behavioral Healthcare, Northeast Addictions Treatment Center in Boston, New Found Life of Florida and now The Indiana Center for Recovery. He has become known for being “the one to call on” to transform traditional halfway houses, treatment centers and sober systems into dynamic sober communities with his proven methods. He has been twice featured on Larry King’s In View, as well as on the The National Geographic's Channels show Drugged. He is known for his tireless work helping addicts from all backgrounds recover from the deadly disease of addiction. Additionally he has placed over 7000 men and women in treatment programs across the United States, and several hundred through way of intervention.
Saul has received national certification from the NADAI in both Anger Management and in Drug and Alcohol Intervention, and has completed the Masters course in the nationally recognized Summit Education group under the tutelage of Betty Spruill who is recognized with such names as Deepak Chopra.
Mr. Kane has not only proven himself successful in the sober community, but in his personal development as well. Currently, with over 12 years of continuous sobriety, he maintains a stellar reputation for working an active program of recovery through Alcoholics Anonymous. He is the single father of a 16 year old son, and he is actively working towards his Certified Addiction Specialist license.
Through this journey of transformation for himself and those around him, Saul Kane has continued to move forward with his passion for helping others by co-founding his 4th treatment center in Bloomington Indiana, his hometown. His personal beliefs lie within the spiritual principles as set forth by Alcoholics Anonymous as well as organized religious groups and he carries these principles over into his business life as well to show other young men and women that they can achieve a life of fulfillment as he has.
Bloomington however is where his heart and deepest roots lie and it is where he feels most "spiritually connected". Here he will bring the same commitment, dedication and energy to one of the most dynamic programs in the United States.
