We will also talk about the counselor’s role in the treatment process, followed by a discussion that will include the families role in a man’s treatment and recovery process.
Bio: Greg Cox came to River City Recovery as a client in 2005. Upon completing treatment he thought, “What better way to give back than to return to River City as a counselor?” In 2006, Greg started working in a social model detox facility. In 2007, the opportunity to come back to River City as a counselor presented itself. During that time, Greg returned to school and became certified as a drug and alcohol counselor. In 2011, Greg was promoted to Program Director and currently oversees the men’s and women’s facilities.
