After his own battle with depression, anxiety, and addiction, Drew set out to establish a treatment facility in College Station that provided excellent medical, clinical, spiritual, and operational care.
“Most treatment centers are designed to accomplish a monumental task in a short amount of time, but they are not designed to help clients re-awaken a positive vision of a new future for themselves, and then help them take the first step to get there.” Drew developed the concept of More Than Rehab out of the belief that providers have to go the extra mile for their clients to help them successfully integrate back into a healthy lifestyle and to improve treatment outcomes.

Brief Biography: Wesley Kerce was born and raised in Jackson, Mississippi, and graduated from Belhaven University in 2018 with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. Before majoring in psychology, he studied Business Administration Management at the University of Mississippi and Building Construction Sciences at Mississippi State University.
Growing up, Wesley enjoyed playing sports and spending time outdoors, which led him to receive his Eagle Scout award at age 18. Although determined, he experienced several highs and lows throughout his high school and college careers. Wesley soon realized he had the same passion for partying as he did for playing sports, which was a recipe for disaster.
During this time, his recreational drug use and drinking took a drastic turn and became his number one priority. After obtaining his degree, he became utterly consumed by his addiction and realized he could not manage his own life. Knowing he could create no way out on his own, Wesley committed to a 12-day detox program and a Texas residential treatment center.
Once completing residential treatment Wesley continued his long-term treatment plan and finished his last two months of sober living. Wesley began his professional career working at Omega Recovery as Director of Operations for just under two years before transitioning to Heartwood Recovery as their Operations Officer. Wesley's journey was challenging but made possible with a long-term treatment plan and a community of men & women striving for the same way of life.
