Authored by Ken Redmile
When people are trapped in a severe addiction it can feel like there is no way out and there is no hope for a better future. This is of course not true. Millions of people are in recovery from an addiction and they go on to lead successful, fulfilling and inspiring lives.
Authority Magazine started a new series about women who were able to achieve great success after recovering from an addiction. The premise of the series is to offer hope and inspiration to people who feel trapped in similar circumstances. As a part of this series we had the pleasure to interview Domenica Personti.
Dominica Personti, MS, LCDP, CADC is the CEO of Recovery Centers of America Capital Region, an inpatient and outpatient substance use disorder treatment facility outside Washington D.C. that recently was named a 2021 Best U.S. Addiction Treatment Facility in Maryland by Newsweek magazine.
Personti has the unique perspective of a person who has recovered from significant behavioral health challenges, survived domestic violence, and provides substance use disorder treatment and mental health services. She is a Trauma-Informed Care Trainer and Master Implementation Specialist as well as an Overdose Prevention Trainer, Mental Health First Aid USA instructor, and trainer for Recovery-Based Peer Support Programs.
