Community Outreach Director
As a member of the Community Outreach team at The Recovery Village Atlanta, Sean Owen is dedicated to helping clients, families, and organizations find quality treatment options. Before joining Advanced Recovery Systems in 2022, Sean found a love for working with those struggling with mental health and addiction in 2015. He started as a tech at a well known behavioral health hospital. At this facility he learned about quality client care, therapeutic boundaries, crisis management, group facilitation and the most important skill, building a therapeutic relationship with clients. In 2015 he started to further his education by attending classes to become a certified addiction counselor. While working towards this goal he was granted a great opportunity to become a counselor in training. After obtaining his CAC1 certificate he went on to become a Certified Experiential Specialist, a Certified Anger Resolution Specialist, and a Yoga and Meditation teacher. He has continued to advance in this field working as a clinical assistant, recovery coach, admissions coordinator, safety officer, outreach coordinator, business development representative, and team lead at a PHP/IOP start up. Sean has worked in many different roles helping him to fully understand the entire process which uniquely qualifies him to help the client and their families feel extremely comfortable during this difficult transition from active addiction to finding recovery. He is excited for the opportunity to help those struggling from mental health and addiction issues find excellent treatment.
