As a business leader, Marianne Gouveia was a successful executive working in aerospace nearly 30 years when she decided to leave corporate America to become an executive coach. Her youngest son Eric struggled with medically prescribed opioids from a high school injury. He had seven surgeries and was left with chronic pain, but eventually his injury became more about addiction than it did about pain and he transitioned to heroin.
The shame and disappointment he carried in his heart created a moment when he made the choice to end his life. Through the loss of Eric, she chose to create a safe place to promote both traditional and alternative forms of healing so there is help for everyone touched by these horrible and devastating epidemics. This was the birth of EricsHouse.
