Letter from Our Chairman

Long term recovery has transformed my life, and it is all for the better. Through recovery, I have earned the sacred privilege to be of service to others, particularly those suffering from substance use and mental health disorders. I have been blessed with many opportunities to fulfill this purpose including bringing high quality, outcomes driven treatment centers for substance use and mental health disorders to underserved markets in the Midwest.

I am excited to introduce Sana Lake Recovery Center, a world class treatment facility strategically located on a stunning, serene and private 55 acres just west of St. Louis, MO. We offer the only dedicated 24/7 medically monitored and staffed detox unit of its kind in the region. Our goal is to give the safest and most comfortable withdrawal possible while providing psychosocial and support services. Our treatment programming offers a broad spectrum of evidence-based, innovative, and holistic interventions and is developed based on the personalized needs of each member. We offer a full continuum of care that includes interventions, medically monitored detox, residential, partial hospitalization, outpatient, aftercare and sober living for members to enjoy recovery for life.

I believe wholeheartedly that a successful business is built on the principle of serving its customers better than anyone else in its industry. At Sana Lake, we have created an environment that attracts, retains and motivates the most caring, compassionate, committed and capable professionals who do all they can to serve our members’ needs. This is the core of our culture.

I have had an extensive and rewarding career in which I have led a number of multi-billion-dollar, international public companies and also many smaller, privately held businesses. My experience spans a variety of industries including addiction and mental health treatment. I have been involved in turnaround situations, high growth, and A-rated companies. Despite all that, the most satisfaction I have had in my career is helping people recover from these cunning, baffling and powerful disorders.

Sana Lake is establishing a new standard in the treatment industry. We do everything possible to help our members begin and support their journey of recovery for life. Please come and see for yourself. You will not be disappointed.
