Staff

Our staff is completely invested in the positive outcomes of our clients. No matter what their area of expertise, the Triumph Recovery team works with you and your family to develop an individualized treatment plan specially designed for your needs.

The goal of each team member is to compassionately and professionally guide you through every phase of your recovery. Our goal is to provide an unparalleled recovery experience.

While members of our staff may indeed have their own success with overcoming addiction, that in and of itself does not qualify them to work in treatment. We require our clinical team to be certified in addiction treatment and have extensive hands on experience in the field.
