Success isn’t a Secret; it’s a System

I’m Eric Gremminger: motivational speaker, executive coach, creator of the Enlightened Recovery Program, co-founder of a free resource of uplifting messages Motivated by the Mission, and proud addict in recovery.

I created the Enlightened Recovery Program as an antipode of the current addiction treatment methods, which are failing us.

Enlightened Recovery

My program Enlightened Recovery is offered at Enlightened Solutions – learn more about our centers here.

I speak to many organizations (non-profits, businesses, police stations, recovery events, awareness walks, etc.) on the Lifestyle of Recovery. If you’re interested in having me speak at your event, contact me here.

I also hold regular workshops on the principles of Success as a form of Service to inspire participants to live a life by design. Stay up-to-date on current events by following me on social media, subscribing to my e-mail newsletter and checking out my events page.

Eric, thank you for your most inspiring and motivating message to all of us… these workshops are the best! You are one of the most dynamic and intelligent people we know.


King’s Crusade

As a leader I can see how the power of effective coaching inspires greater performance and potential in a dynamic team and organization. Eric’s course of instruction provided invaluable insight on the importance of leading, facilitating and getting the best out of yourself and those around you. He was engaging, motivating and encouraging and the training session inspired our staff to enhance our roles as leaders in the law enforcement community.


Evesham Police Department

I had the opportunity to visit last week, tour the facility and listen to a very motivational presentation by COO Eric Gremminger. This place is outstanding, and as a prevention educator and retired police officer, I was extremely impressed with everyone I met. I would highly recommend Sanctuary to anyone who needs their services. Great job!


Prevention Plus

Eric is in his second year as Director for our Wellness Program and has brought so many positive things to the table. Eric prepares and presents monthly Lunch & Learns to our firm on personal health and well-being. Programs are very well attended and have gotten much positive feedback on Eric’s topics and his personal attention. Eric takes his role as Director seriously and makes himself available to all our employees. He is a great asset to our firm and I personally have had wonderful experience working with him.

From Bench to Boardroom

Those of you who have known me for some time have probably heard my Bench to Boardroom narrative, but for some of the new faces here, I want to tell you a story. Eight years ago, I hit rock bottom. I was laying on a bench at City Hall Philadelphia, staring up at the...

You break stigma with your success

Mother Teresa said, “I was once asked why I don’t participate in anti-war demonstrations. I said that I will never do that, but as soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I’ll be there.”

The importance of time away

Being away gives us time to reflect and reveal deeper insights. I found my horizons opening up both literally and figuratively when I stared out at a vista after a rigorous hike…
