Legacy Outdoor Adventures, a wilderness treatment program for young adult males who are struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring emotional and mental health issues, has named Jeff Johnson as its new director of admissions.
Johnson entered the world of special needs over 23 years ago. He has been in a variety of admissions and program development capacities ever since. "I'm very excited to be working with this highly skilled group of people at Legacy Outdoor Adventures," Johnson said. "There is so much talent and too many combined years of experience to count."
In the last few years, Johnson has been working specifically in substance abuse treatment, and has worked with adults in several treatment settings. He understands how powerful the outdoors and a 12 step model are for recovery, and is committed to providing every family he works with the best possible opportunity to find success.
Johnson has based his career and his life's reputation on maintaining integrity in the admission process. "I won't bring a family into a program if I don't have absolute confidence they can be successful."
Legacy utilizes weekly adventures to engage young men in their own treatment process, while maintaining the powerful impact of the wilderness experience. The Legacy treatment team includes Licensed Therapists, Licensed Substance Abuse Counselors, and experienced field guides functioning as mentors and role modeling healthy recovery. At Legacy, we guide young men to responsible adulthood one adventure at a time.
