Amid continued growth, Addiction Recovery Care promotes Matt Brown and Kayla Parsons
To further its mission to help more people achieve long-term recovery from substance use disorders, Addiction Recovery Care (ARC) is proud to announce Matt Brown’s promotion to Chief Administration Officer and Kayla Parsons’ promotion to Senior Vice President of Business Administration.
Both Brown and Parsons originally came to ARC as clients, and since then, have built successful careers helping others who are struggling with addiction.
During his time as an ARC employee, Brown has helped grow the organization by more than 20 programs. Today, as Chief Administration Officer, he plays a vital role in overseeing ARC’s 30-plus programs across 21 Eastern and Central Kentucky counties
“When I first came to ARC for treatment all those years ago, I could not have foreseen the transformative impact it would have on my life,” said Brown. “I am grateful to be part of a team that is so dedicated to helping others. Our continued growth will allow us to help even more people reach long-term recovery.”
Parsons came to ARC in 2016 after a decade-long battle with addiction. Leveraging ARC’s vocational training opportunities, she first began as residential staff, and today serves as the Senior Vice President of Business Administration. Parsons plays a large role in ARC’s finance and human resource departments, strategic communications, business development and organizational strategy.
“Recovery from addiction is possible–and my story is proof. My own experience going from crisis to career is why I’m so passionate about advancing ARC’s mission and helping more people lead healthy, purposeful lives,” said Parsons.
To support the organization’s growth, ARC promoted several others on its leadership team, as well:
Pat Fogarty is Chief Operating Officer
Jessica Burke is Chief Legal and Government Affairs Officer
Megan Coldiron is Senior Vice President of Business Operations
John Wilson is Kentucky Market President
“As a large and continuously growing organization serving one of Kentucky’s most vulnerable populations, our staff plays an essential role in advancing our mission,” said Tim Robinson, ARC’s President and CEO. “The Addiction Recovery Care leadership team encompasses a wide range of personal and professional experiences that allow us to better serve our clients and partners in the Commonwealth and beyond.”
As the nation continues to battle record-high overdose fatalities, ARC leadership has remained focused on bringing services to more communities throughout Kentucky and the Appalachian region. The organization is working to open new residential treatment centers in Greenup and Daviess counties, with plans to expand out-of-state in 2023.
