Founded by London-based writer Richard Joy, Recovering Man is about rebuilding men in our age of chaos, confusion and fear, which is exemplified in the contemporary spectres of purposelessness, unhealthy living, addictions, anxiety, compulsive behaviour, and neediness, leaving a generation of ‘lost boys‘.

Rather than viewing such disorders as eternal, chronic diseases, Recovering Man instead views these things for what they are – life laying down the gauntlet for a man to transform himself into the strong, wise energy of a leader that each man is at his core.

Prizing discipline, hard work and humility over complaining, virtue-signaling and playing the victim, Recovering Man exists to uncover how modern men can ‘recover’ masculinity and find a path between the archaic macho man and the lost boy.
