Lubowitz, an Upper Dublin High School graduate, is the founder and CEO of Humble Beginnings Recovery Centers.

These provide treatment for drug and alcohol abuse, along with mental health counseling for people suffering from addiction. Currently, Humble Beginnings has treatment centers in both southeastern Pennsylvania and southern New Jersey.

Lubowitz, who became addicted to opioids during his first year at Penn State, was forced to drop out in his second year due to his addiction.

After seeing other struggling with the same issues, he decided to find a way to help them navigate to full recovery.  This resulted in Humble Beginnings, which opened its doors for the first time three years ago.

Lubowitz tries to hire people who genuinely care about the clients. This provides a higher quality of care and has been instrumental in Humble Care’s success.

“They have the drive and motivation to put their knowledge to use to provide the best services to our clients,” said Lubowitz.
