Nancy is our CCAR trained Family Support Coordinator/Family Recovery Coach. Having lived experience with being affected by family members with Substance Use Disorder & tragically the loss of her daughter Dana's life in 2017 to an opioid overdose, she is very passionate about doing this work. Having a Family Support Program is very important because we know that addiction is a "Family Disease". Supporting & educating families through our Family Road To Recovery Program is one of the best ways I can honor my daughter's life. Each day trying to live by Dana's favorite quote...."Be the change you wish to see in the world"🧡

Integrated Care Coordinator


Rebecka is our Integrated Care Coordinator. She is currently in the process of moving into her Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and Mental Health Counseling. She is currently in the middle of her Community Health Worker training! Rebecka has always been passionate about helping people and shining positivity into the community. Although she has not dealt with addiction personally, she has been a witness to many family members and friends affected by substance use disorder. This is another driving reason she fully believes in helping people in recovery to find their path to sobriety and create a healthy future.
