Jerrod Menz started A Better Tomorrow Treatment Centers in 2004 with one facility and 12 beds in Temecula, California.
Like his mother, Menz was able to walk away from his own addiction to alcohol and drugs to help others. In a few short years, the company had multiple drug and alcohol in-patient centers with about 70 beds.
However, Menz's aggressive business tactics and desire to grow his company attracted the ire of a neighboring competitor, Charles "Rocky" Hill.
Hill had tried for years to draw attention to Menz and A Better Tomorrow Treatment Centers. Following the untimely and sudden death of a client in 2010, Hill connected with Deputy Attorney General Hardy Gold, who served under the California Attorney General, Kamala Harris.
For the next few years, these two men would conspire to build a murder case against Menz and destroy his company.
