Originally from Southern California, Stephanie entered the Behavioral Health field in 2016. She had a strong passion to help the addict/alcoholic that still suffers in any way she could. Starting as a tech, she provided emotional support and operational services. Stephanie quickly moved her way up in the field assisting with the insurance billing; running vob’s; assisting with prescreens and finally finding her passion working alongside the Executive and Clinical Director learning about compliance, The Department of Health Care Services (DHCS), The Joint Commission (TJC), and what makes a clinical and ethical program be the best. Stephanie’s unique opportunities have allowed her to work side-by-side with therapists and case managers helping multiple facilities navigate becoming DHCS and Joint Commission Accredited, and stay in continued compliance, oftentimes allowing her an inside look of facilities – learning the do’s, the don’ts and how to really put a clients care and treatment first. Stephanie is a CADC II who has extensive knowledge in the field. She took her experience in all areas with her to Destiny Recovery Center, building an amazing team of clinicians, techs and medical staff who have the same passion she lives by; providing the best quality care to each and every client from the time they admit throughout their entire stay, while assisting them in building a strong aftercare plan from day one.
