If you are struggling with addiction, it is good to know you are not alone. If fact, there has been an increase in people needing treatment since the beginning of the pandemic.  Dawn Belamarich is CEO of Recovery Centers of America at Lighthouse in Mays Landing, NJ.  She explains their inpatient and outpatient programs based on the 12 Steps of Recovery, and how RCA is adjusting their protocols to continue to provide care during this challenging time.

Dawn Belamarich is an experienced leader and advocate within the community, recently assuming the role of CEO at Recovery Centers of America at Lighthouse. After achieving two master’s degrees and having worked in various social service and treatment settings, Dawn found a permanent home within the social service fabric of South Jersey. For over a decade, Dawn has been an influential leader within the field, carrying roles such as therapist, supervisor, administrator, and now Chief Executive Officer. She developed an unrelenting passion for working with those in need. Dawn is a Licensed Professional Counselor, Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor, and has certifications to work with those struggling with gambling addiction and trauma. From working with adults in a state prison environment to working with youth in intensive outpatient and aftercare modalities, Dawn has not only developed a concrete understanding of how addiction works but has also developed the most important characteristic in addiction and mental health treatment; knowing how to best guide individuals on their journey to bring about positive, sustainable change. In her role as CEO at RCA Lighthouse, Dawn hopes to continue to aid individuals in bringing about positive change on their path to recovery.
