Tony, MSW

Chief Executive Officer

Over 22 years of experience in the field of substance abuse, mental health and social work. I completed my Master’s degree in clinical social work at a California State University in 2007. Received my Bachelors degree in psychology with emphasis on addictive disorders. I completed substance abuse counseling certification at California State University. I began working in the field of addiction treatment with teenagers and their families immediately upon entering the certification program. I worked as a Drug and Alcohol counselor with dually diagnosed ex-convicts. I also became a Certified Relapse Prevention Counselor with CENAPS. I worked with individuals on developing treatment plans for dually diagnosed addicts, living as homeless in the streets of Los Angeles. I have collaborated with members of the community such as job developers, job preparation instructors, counselors, doctors and case managers to prepare clients to become emotionally stable and back to living independently. I also worked extensively with individuals and families struggling with grief and loss. I have practiced in a variety of inpatient and outpatient settings since 1998 working with adults and adolescents.
