Prior to joining DCTC, Sarah spent much of her time dedicated to those recovering from addiction. She enjoys working with individuals to attain and maintain sobriety. Sarah has treated addiction at an inpatient residential treatment facility, Intensive Outpatient with the Dallas probation system, and a hospital based dual diagnosis program for those with both mental health and substance abuse diagnoses. Sarah has a very direct, no-nonsense approach which she believes works well with individuals struggling with addiction.
