Seaside House Team: compassionate. exceptional.  professional.   

Kevin Deasy

Founder

Kevin Deasy was raised in Glen Cove, NY, in an energetic, sports-minded family with 5 other siblings.  A hard worker from a young age, and always business minded, Kevin's enthusiasm for both sports and business was derailed by increased "partying."  At age 18, it was apparent he had a substance abuse problem, and decided that joining the Navy would help him, but it was not the answer for his addictions.  Kevin found his way to recovery, but taking a couple years of relapses before he actually embraced the 12-step program.

Kevin managed a treatment center in Long Island, NY, another in Hew Hampshire, and a program for law enforcement officers in Florida.  His experiences in working with addicts and families created the foundation of establishing, Seaside House.

Kevin took time away from the treatment industry, started a family, and re-entered the financial industry in the 1990's.  In his struggles to find appropriate treatment for his own son, Ryan, his business knowledge, and vast experience with addiction and treatment, lead Kevin to the creation of a dream.  He envisioned a transitional house, such as Seaside House, devoted to helping young men not only get sober, but also a program to teach the skills to begin successful lives, as they remain sober.  

Kevin is what others in 12-step programs would call an "old-timer", as he has been on his personal path of sobriety since becoming clean at age 26.  Kevin is anything but old!  He embraces life with vigor, an avid sportsman with hiking, biking, golf, and so much that the outdoors has to offer.  

Kevin is a success story.  Sober since September 1982, with an impressive resume of accomplishments, and a beautiful family.  Seaside House was born of his vision for a program of joy, success in sobriety, a mentoring program that sets men on the path to fulfilling lives.  He has experienced and overcome addiction both personally, and as a parent. Kevin understands the struggle, and also the rewards. He feels blessed to help addicts and their families realize their dreams of recovery.

Ryan Deasy

Founder

Ryan Deasy, co-founded Seaside House with his father.  He was raised in NY and moved to Florida after the 9/11 disaster.  Despite high levels of success throughout his childhood and adolescence with his passion for golf, Ryan struggled with behavioral issues.  He started using substances, and became addicted - leading him to several different treatment centers.  He tried traditional inpatient treatment, wilderness based programs, individual, group, and family therapy, and intensive outpatient therapies.  Nothing seemed to work for him until Ryan attended Wilderness Treatment Center, and he is proud to be sober since May 2012.  

Ryan's level of real life experience has enabled him to extend the wisdom of his journey in relatable mentoring of Seaside House residents.  Becoming sober at such a young age, Ryan understands that overcoming addictions leads to an incredibly fulfilling life, opening a myriad of possibilities.

 

Ryan and his father conceived Seaside House from endless hours of conversation about the need for a no-nonsense, down-to-earth, transitional living program for young men.  The goal was to create conditions that for young men to get sober, in a joyful, fun, successful way.  Seaside House is the product of these conversations and Ryan feels blessed to be able to achieve his dream of helping other young men, like himself, become successful, sober members of society.

After several more false starts, and an ever increasing list of problems and consequences, he ceased fighting and accepted the proposals placed to him in Alcoholics Anonymous. His career began in sober living, and then transitioned into a number of different positions at various residential treatment facilities, most recently with Origins Behavioral Healthcare. He has had many roles over the past years, which have educated him on all the various aspects of recovery. From group lectures, to case management, and most recently as an admissions coordinator working with clients and their families at their most vulnerable time, he truly understands what recovery takes, and is committed to helping people achieve it.
