Manny Rodriguez is the CEO and Founder of La Fuente. He is an addiction specialist and public speaker. He is at the top of his field and a respected provider in the industry.
“Helping individuals recover from the disease of addiction while rewarding can be a daunting task, even after many years. I was lucky very early in life with a calling that provided passion and also demanded dedication, endurance and sacrifice. I’ve done several things in between, some successful and some not. However, none came close to the passion I had in my youth. La Fuente and what we are called to do each day is the only thing that has reignited what I felt in my formative years. My goal everyday is to stay connected to why I do this.” _ Manny Rodriguez
