From there, she began assisting interventions, providing transport to and from treatment facilities, overseeing drug and alcohol screening, and providing sober companionship.

Roger Hoff
Roger Hoff joined Recovery Care Partner to provide clients what considers the Three Ss of recovery: Safety, Stability, and Support. He helps men new in recovery stay safe by teaching them to thrive in environments free of drugs and alcohol. He helps them create new patterns and routines through the stable structures of the recovery community. And he connects them with recovering men so they can experience the support of working through common challenges. Roger believes that newly sober men can avoid triggers and improve their lives when they surround themselves with other men who understand the feelings and emotions experienced in early recovery.

Roger is a husband, father, son, brother, and uncle, but his recovery is what allows all the other titles to be a healthy reality.
