About Sam Russell

Sam is the Alumni Director of Discovery Institute. She has been with discovery since November 2017, originally hired as a medical assistant for Detox. She then took on a new hybrid role and worked as a part time medical assistant and part time behavioral health technician. Over time she returned to school to obtain her CADC and became a counselor intern.

Sam is currently still a CADC intern and working on getting her certification. Sam hopes that having the clinical background will help her fulfill her job as Alumni Director. She strives to help clients by getting to know them while in treatment and maintaining a professional relationship with them after treatment. Sam regularly checks in with clients upon discharge to make sure they are still doing well and help clients get back into treatment if needed. Sam believes clients are a number one priority and whatever we can do to help should be done.
