John Burke is founder and co-owner of Honu House Hawaii. Before getting sober, John was a chronic relapser. He slowly learned that “self-knowledge availed him nothing.” After more than a decade in recovery, he learned the true meaning of surrender and helped form Honu House Hawaii. John’s lengthy experience in 12 step based programs has helped create a new foundation for everyone to succeed in their recovery. He believes that it is only after an ultimate act of humility, self-sacrifice, and surrender, that we can begin to live freely. John now devotes his life to his passion for helping others find freedom from addiction.
