He feels he has found his purpose working in substance use disorder treatment and finds fulfillment by helping others recover, just as others have helped him on his journey. Chas has been working in the recovery field since 2016 and has worked in numerous positions including support staff, client advocate, Case Manager and now, Director of Operations.
As Director of Operations, Chas oversees the day-to-day activities, client/facility safety, and all operational team members. Our Operations staff consists of a well-trained and dedicated staff who share a common passion for helping men and women struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. When not at work, Chas can be found at home spending time with his family. In addition, he coaches youth football and volunteers his time at various local animal rescues. In the recovery industry since 2016, Chas believes an essential piece of recovery is changing perceptions and rebuilding healthy, sustainable self-esteem.
