Rebecca S.

Rebecca is a Substance Abuse Counselor with the Stars Program after being a treatment specialist since 2009 when she began her employment with Community and Family Resources. After spending over a decade suffering from addiction herself, she knows what truly drives individuals to become free from their disease and connects well with the people we are trying to help. In her time with Community and Family Resources, she has been recognized as a Treatment Specialist of the Year as well as received an MVP award at the Stars Program. Rebecca recently received her B.S. in Criminal Justice with a focus in Human Services.

In her spare time she loves to do normal, everyday things with her family such as simply eating supper together and watching Wheel of Fortune. She also spends time with the many friends of her children and will often engage in activities of grilling, camping, swimming, gardening, riding their golf cart, playing board games, and in winter months watching movies and playing in the snow. Every year she enjoys traveling to at least one a new destination.
