Clinical Director, Recovery Centers of America
For Luke English, it’s been one day at a time over the last 20 years. In 2004, he started working with teens and adult men in Kennett Square. “Some people give up on human beings even though they’re suffering and struggling,” English says. “I consider it a privelege to play a part in their road to recovery.”
Now the clinical director at Recovery Centers of America in Devon, English describes addiction as the same in every geography. “No one is above or below substance-abuse disorder,” he says. “It’s a disease that doesn’t discriminate. We teach that to our population—and if they grasp onto it, they evolve and grow.”
