“Waking up for a few sober minutes, face wet, embedded on a dirt ridden floor, in this abandoned motel in the middle of palm springs…I was crying in my sleep. I needed to run from myself, instead I reached for another needle….internal combustible self-hatred. If I remained sober for too many minutes I would have to realize where I was and what I had become.” Click Here to Read Daniel’s Story
In 2012, after many outpatient and inpatient treatment centers, and years of an uphill battle with addiction, the Regan Family discovered the gaps in the current system and realized a need for diverse programs of extended aftercare. When Daniel Regan left the safety of his final 30 day rehabilitation center, he returned to his Monmouth County home as a timid 21 year old man, unsure of how to piece back together his life. He developed a recovery system for himself with the help of his mother, Lynn Regan. After successfully practicing this recovery system, others became interested and asked to get involved, so they too could sustain long term recovery. The Regan’s quickly realized this system was working and that everyone deserves access to an aftercare program. In 2012, they created CFC Loud N Clear Foundation, a New Jersey 501c3.
Since conception, CFC has assisted over 20,000 families struggling with addiction and has received numerous accolades and rewards for the innovative, ground breaking approach to recovery.
After his own heroin addiction and being dragged through the revolving door of treatment centers, Daniel realized the critical and vital need for extended aftercare and peer-based support. Upon returning home to New Jersey, Daniel created, with the help of his mother Lynn, a recovery plan for himself that would later become a life saving program for thousands of families.
Alyssa Regan is a daughter of two parents still currently in active addiction and was a child of the DYFS system, living in 22 foster homes before being adopted at age of 10. She is a survivor of sexual trauma and experienced both physical and psychological abuse from her caretakers, biological family, and adoptive parents. She shares her story of her past experiences so that people will have a different perspective of the child care system in America, to hear the story of a child affected by addiction, and offers hope to others who may have experienced the same. Alyssa Regan has a background in the medical field and has been involved with CFC Loud N Clear Foundation since 2014. She has dedicated her time to educating others about the importance of Relapse Prevention and offering perspective to others who are supporting a loved one through their recovery.

In early October 2015, as part of his role as police chaplain, at the request of his chief, James enrolled and began his certification to become a CCAR recovery coach at CFC Loud N Clear. In the 5+ years that he has been with the CFC family, he has experienced first hand the philosophy of Coming Full Circle. “I have faced and defeated many of the demons of my youth and in the process have stood alongside others as they battle their own. We, as a family, have had to say goodbye to many who we came to fall in love with, yet we continue to learn to forgive and to heal. Not only ourselves but others.” James is 36 years clean and sober and “thankful for every scar.”
