Michael Dadashi is the founder and CEO of Infinite Recovery, a progressive Austin-based addiction rehabilitation center, as well as the founder and company director of a multi-million dollar electronics recycling and resale business, MHD Enterprises. He serves on the board of the national non-profit, Facing Addiction, and recently launched HeartWater, a platform designed to quench a universal thirst for authenticity and hope through powerful stories of all-inclusive recovery. Dadashi, a successful 32-year-old entrepreneur, is also a recovered heroin addict and alcoholic. He had his first drink and subsequent blackout when he was 15, which began a years-long battle with substance abuse. A natural salesman even from a young age, he was soon selling and using drugs, including marijuana, prescription pills and eventually heroin, and barely graduated from high school.
