Owners and Founders of Recovery Blvd

Solara Salazar MS, CADCII
Autumn Brown MS, CADCIII
We all know that young adults can be more difficult to reason with or use traditional therapy motivators with than older substance abuse Clients at times. Add to that they are newly sober or substances are involved it can be even more challenging. Our Management Team and Clinical Team is made up of people who are the best in the industry at reaching young people and speaking to their values, direction and motivators. Young people often have a larger than life belief system and the gravity of substance use is not readily available in their peer group for them to latch on to. Recovery Blvd employs people who through skilled counseling modalities, charisma, personal investment, esteem building  and inspiration are able to reach people at their lowest point. Recovery Blvd is the center where you or your loved one will be a part of a healthy, recovery community. Our young adults stay sober over a year after graduation at a rate 3 times higher than the national average. These are the people who make it happen!

Jeremy Bixler

Rock to Recovery

Every Thursday for two hours

Music Therapy

Jeremy “Jermz” Bixler has been playing music his entire life. With a penchant to merge music and mindfulness, Jeremy believes that when combined, the two create a remarkable formula to elevate the spirit and consciousness, process cognitive dissonance, and heal from within.

Since high school, Jeremy has started and fronted many musical acts, from ska to surf-rock and power-pop to metal, and recorded numerous albums. 

Clearly Jeremy believes in second chances. His catawampus sojourn through addiction began when he was 21, while attending Pepperdine University, where he was Radio Programming Director. He quickly found that a predisposition to depression and no ability to moderate his drinking were a life-numbing combination. This road led to jails and institutions, including a treatment facility in Michigan followed by a short residency at a meditation center in 2015. He has been sober ever since. 

Currently, Jeremy lives the punk rock dream in Portland, Oregon as singer/songwriter/guitar slayer for the band Undude. Undude is at the forefront of the mindful grunge movement in Portland. Jeremy’s persistence and passion for helping others using the power of music led him to Rock to Recovery. He is the flagship program administrator for the Pacific Northwest, providing Rock to Recovery’s brand of music therapy in Vancouver, Portland and Salem.
