In Memoriam


Richard Entriken

(1948 - 2008)

Richard Davis Entriken, founder of 1st Step Sober House, and mentor of Primary Purpose Sober House was taken from us on January 26, 2008. A decorated Vietnam War Veteran, loving husband, and father to three daughters, he found his calling in helping alcoholics and addicts, of whom he helped thousands to recover from their seemingly hopeless condition.

He will be sorely missed by all whose lives he touched.
