Nancy Turner

Chief Executive Officer

In 2001, Mrs. Turner entered the substance abuse field with her sister and friend. Her sister was a recovering heroin addict and became a certified substance abuse counselor. Since her sister’s passing, Mrs. Turner joined her husband to continue to champion the stigma associated with persons seeking recovery from substances of abuse. Mrs. Turner is a practicing Registered Nurse with experience in a variety of fields, including; but not limited to, critical care, operating room, recovery room and prison medical services. The effects of substance abuse are felt in every aspect of life today. Changing how one perceives those that seek a sober lifestyle is essential to ending the cycle of abuse. Ending the cycle of abuse will reduce crime, improve family relationships, improve health outcomes, reduce medical costs, and reduce conflict within our entire community.
