Curt’s services are driven by the core belief that addiction is by its very nature an extremely difficult condition to treat effectively, and the systems that treat it well are free of cracks and pockets for addiction to escape or reside. When the center is operating at peak efficiency, goals of surrounding this insidious disease are met and addiction starts the long process of dying. Conversely, patients treated in loose systems too often do not achieve the internalization of recovery sufficient to become self-sustaining through the daily disciplines of the sober design for living. No amount of any one or two of the elements of recovery will sustain the process – all aspects must be operative.
With this in mind, Curt’s services help centers see what they may be too close to see themselves. Like recovery, one must continuously take inventory, increase the valuable and dispose of the valueless. This a favorite area of his work, as Curt loves being a part of something really good, something that winds up helping others.
Curt is one of the most well-rounded and knowledgable executives I know in the addiction treatment field. Over his career he has held important roles in virtually all domains of behavioral healthcare management. His rich professional diversity contributes to Curt’s rare ability to meet those he supervises where they are at, understand complex organizational challenges from all angles and credibly lead a team towards real solutions that serve all stakeholders. His leadership style is firm yet compassionate, and his authentic heart for those wonderful individuals and families he serves is written on all that he does – a special heart without which, we cannot effectively arrest the illnesses he has dedicated his life to treating. Curt is the consummate addiction executive and I strongly recommend working with him any chance you get, especially when lives and outcomes are on the line.
