Zac Clark & Justin Gurland

Our Founders

Zac Clark and Justin Gurland founded Release Recovery in 2017 with the goal of helping people reclaim their lives from addiction. They are an unlikely pair: Zac is a former college athlete who intended to pursue a career in sports; Justin obtained a Masters Degree in Social Work from Hunter College. When they met seven years ago, they discovered a shared conviction that the message of recovery is one best conveyed through simple language. Drawing from their years of experience in the recovery field—as well as from their own personal journeys in recovery—Zac and Justin have made it their life’s work to share the gift of recovery with as many people as possible.
