Ashley Addiction Treatment's 10th annual Mae Abraham Luncheon on May 17 in Baltimore will honor Rebecca Flood, CEO of New Directions for Women in California. A news release from the Maryland treatment center states that Flood is being honored for her work as a national ambassador for recovery and the advancement of women.
Flood, an Addiction Professional blogger, has nearly four decades of experience in the addiction field and has run New Directions for Women for 13 years. She also serves on numerous boards and provides training to other centers as a CARF surveyor.
“Like our co-founder, Mae Abraham, Becky has dedicated her life to breaking down the stigma of drug and alcohol addiction while making quality treatment available to more women in need,” said Martha Meehan-Cohen, Ashley's director of development and alumni services.
The annual luncheon is held in recognition of Abraham, who co-founded the Maryland center nearly 35 years ago with the renowned Father Joseph Martin.
