Origins Recovery Centers has announced that former Caron Treatment Centers executive vice president Drew Rothermel has been named CEO of the residential treatment and continuing care organization. Origins' co-founder and former CEO, Benjamin Levenson, is becoming Origins' board chairman and will focus on the treatment-related philanthropic mission of the Levenson Foundation.
Rothermel had served as Caron's chief operating officer and also was president of Caron's growing Florida operations in residential and outpatient treatment. An April 14 news release from Origins called Rothermel “one of the recovery industry's true thought leaders” and stated he is “widely recognized for his ability to find and execute important growth strategies.” Origins has been seeking to expand its presence into new markets.
Rothermel cited Origins' “ample resources to move swiftly with acquisitions” as being among the organization's key attributes.
In Levenson's new role at Origins, he will serve as the visionary for the organization's growth and will be heavily involved in the Levenson Foundation's effort to finance addiction and mental health services for disadvantaged populations worldwide.
