Robert "Cord" Beatty 



Cord has personal knowledge of the pain and destruction caused by addiction. He has an amazing story of spiritual awakening, redemption and a journey to full recovery from Alcoholism and Addiction.

Early in his adult life, he accomplished a successful career in film and television, working as an executive director of numerous films and television productions. At one point in his career he had accumulated a personal net worth of over $35 Million. Along with the success came the stresses of running a publicly traded corporation, raising money, managing employees, successes and failures.


By age 46, Alcohol had taken everything including his marriage, children, business, home, automobiles and money. Alcohol had also taken its toll on his health. He found himself homeless and dealing with serious life threatening issues with his liver, kidney’s and heart. In 2010, he was told by doctors that he would not live the day. That his liver had failed completely and there were no other options available. Finding himself broken, bankrupt, defeated, and standing on death’s door, he experienced the miracle of a spiritual awakening and the power of God for the first time in his life.


​Cord recovered from Alcoholism and Addiction and went back to College at Purdue University pursuing his Master’s Degree of Psychology in Addiction at Purdue University. He is active in the recovery community. He is the co-founder of New U Recovery residential inpatient treatment center near Park City Utah and the founder of The Retreat At Zion residential inpatient treatment center in Rockville Utah.

A public speaker and regular on talk shows, radio broadcasts, pod casts and was featured on the cover and feature articles of magazines such as Recovery Today Magazine in 2018 and 2019. In his recovery, he has helped hundreds of individuals to overcome addiction through his treatment centers, education, and mentorship.
