Peggy Gelber, RADT-I - Client Care Supervisor

Peggy Gelber’s journey in recovery began with a profound moment of clarity at a meeting, where she saw a sign that read, “Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help others achieve sobriety.” This realization ignited her passion and purpose in life. Shortly thereafter, Peggy earned her Substance Abuse and Addiction Counseling Certificate from Pacific Oaks College in Pasadena, CA. Now celebrating 25 years of sobriety, she brings over 23 years of experience in working with individuals and groups in the field of recovery.

Peggy is a strong advocate for advancing the treatment of co-occurring disorders, recognizing the need for better education and training in addressing both addiction and mental illness. She is excited to be part of this paradigm shift, contributing to the growth and development of more comprehensive treatment approaches.

Originally from the picturesque town of Thompson Falls, Montana, Peggy maintains close ties with her family and visits them regularly. Her life is enriched by her three-year-old grandson, Wyatt, and her two boxers, Bailee and Xena, who bring her immense joy and keep her active.

Peggy’s approach to counseling emphasizes long-term sobriety and integrity. She encourages her clients to live honestly, maintain good health, create their own happiness, and continuously seek wisdom and self-knowledge. Her mission is to share her enthusiasm and love for sobriety, helping others to create fulfilling and happy lives. Peggy’s dedication and heartfelt approach make her a vital member of the Avalon team, where she inspires and supports those on their path to recovery.
