Santa Fe, NM — Life Healing Center, a comprehensive mental health and addiction treatment facility located in Santa Fe, New Mexico, has announced the hiring of Mary Young as Executive Director. Young replaces Marshall Millikin, who is stepping down to resume his role as Marketing Director for the facility.

“We are pleased to welcome Mary to the strong Life Healing Center team,” said Candy Henderson, Vice President, Southern Region for CRC Health Group, the parent company of Life Healing Center. “Her vast healthcare experience and skill set will be tremendous assets for the staff, clients and families of Life Healing Center.”

Henderson adds: “Marshall has been a fantastic leader and we are fortunate to have his help to make this as seamless a transition as possible.”

Young has over 17 years of administrative and clinical experience in hospitals and addiction treatment facilities. Prior to joining Life Healing Center, she was a division director for a 72-bed acute addiction hospital and outpatient clinic. She also has worked as the administrator for residential treatment programs for adolescents with one of the nation’s largest healthcare management companies. In addition, she has served as a clinical director, managed two community mental health offices, and has handled assessments and referrals for acute psychiatric hospitals.

Young earned her master’s in counseling psychology from Indiana University/Purdue University of Indianapolis and is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Indiana.

“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to lead a premier treatment facility such as Life Healing Center,” said Young. “I look forward to working with a truly outstanding staff, our patients, their families and our referral sources.”

For nearly two decades, Life Healing Center has offered clients an individualized treatment experience to address issues such as trauma, PTSD, substance abuse, grief/bereavement, eating disorders, love/sex addiction, dissociative disorders and codependency. The Center’s therapeutic model combines individual and group therapy and a 12 Step philosophy with holistic, mind-body-spirit elements such as fitness and meditation.

The unique Life Healing Center experience can be attributed to its highly qualified staff, a specialized approach to wellness and recovery, and the serene natural environment of the foothills of New Mexico. For more information, visit
