Guest Speaker

Kirk Kirkpatrick with
Riverside Recovery

Kirk is a native Floridian. Born at Eglin AFB (Ft. Walton Beach, FL) where his father was a fighter pilot in the Air Force. His family moved to Tampa after his father retired. He’s a graduate of University of Florida and played football for Steve Spurrier. After a very brief NFL career, he worked for Merrill Lynch and was a Financial Trader. He had a very successful career and everything ended with markets changing from fractions to decimals. In his 30’s Kirk fell into addiction and lost everything. He caused a trail of destruction for many years and only through finally asking for help, jumped into Recovery. After his life slowly got better, he and Elizabeth Stockton thought of a better way to treat people with Addiction issues. As Co-Founder of Riverside Recovery of Tampa, we treat people with love and empathy and try to eliminate the stigma of Addiction. 

Kirk lives in Tampa and has 3 daughters, Olivia 20, Bella 18 & Graysen 9.
