Today's Topic is "Addiction And Recovery".  My special guest is Executive Vice President / COO  Paul Alexander.  Paul Alexander has been a crucial leader in the development of Northbound, helping to bring to the forefront the center’s strengths. Paul relies on his experience in the leadership of many treatment facilities over the years, especially implementing and running numerous education-based treatment programs. He served as the co-creator and program director of the first treatment program coupling higher education and treatment. With this experience, Paul designed the Sober Academy College Program at Northbound, now the Northbound Academy, which is widely considered the best program of its kind. Paul cites the consistency and spiritual values of Northbound as its strengths, and he sees his contribution as re-articulating these fundamentals. Paul received his Certified Addiction Treatment Specialist training at Saddleback College in Mission Viejo, California, and was awarded Outstanding Alumni Service Award in 2002. He also holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminology, Law and Society, summa cum laude, from the School of Social Ecology at University of California, Irvine. While at UCI, Paul co-authored an honors research thesis: An Evaluation of Addiction Treatment Coupled with Higher Education, which he presented at the 2004 University of California Research Symposium. Paul recently received his Juris Doctorate degree at Loyola Law School of Los Angeles.  For more information about Northbound please visit http://www.livingsober.com/
