Kathy Evans, CAC, SAC, NCAC1
Currently in recovery for 27 years, my recovery is my top priority. I have dedicated my life to helping others, and my favorite title is Nana.
It is only by the Grace of a loving God and a beautiful fellowship that I am in recovery and helping others today.
Lamar Ward, CEO, CAC
Co-Owner and CEO
In January of 2012, Kathy Evans and I, in partnership with Clay County Hospital, started The Journey Detox and Recovery, LLC. Since the inception of The Journey in 2012, we have had the privilege of partnering with other hospitals in the state of Alabama, as well as working with others in the southeast, to provide a safe and uneventful setting for medial detoxification and to provide a continuum of care for all patients who desire a clean and sober life.
Community Outreach and Education Specialist
I have a Human Services degree from Gadsden State Community College. I have earned certifications for CPSS and CRSC. I am a member of and currently working through NAADAC to become a Nationally Certified Addiction Counselor, NCAC1.
Being in recovery since 2010, I have a passion for helping and working with others suffering from addiction and alcoholism.
I am currently the Program Manager of The Journey Detox and Recovery, LLC, located at The Washington County Hospital and Nursing Home in Chatom, AL. I am currently seven years clean and sober from Benzos, pain pills, and anything else I could use. My life had spiraled out of control.
Today, I give back what was so graciously given to me. Experience, Strength, and Hope. Without it, I could not be who I am today. Addiction does not mean a “life sentence” because recovery is always possible.
“Experience is not what happens to you, it is what you do with what happens to you.”
