Ronnie Powers, CATC - Alumni Coordinator
Ronnie is originally from Detroit, Michigan but has been living in California in 2006. He moved to California looking to find a place to begin his new life in addiction recovery. His first position in the substance abuse treatment field was in 2007 at a well-known Malibu treatment facility where he worked for 8+ years. It was at this facility that he realized that working with individuals who were seeking recovery and looking to live a life free from alcohol and drugs was to be his calling.
Ronnie attended school in 2010 and became CATC-I certified. This is when decided to make this field his life’s work. Since then he has worked as a group facilitator as well as a sober coach for many private clients. Among his many accomplishments, Ronnie is also deeply admired by everyone on the team at Avalon Malibu for his dedication, outgoing personality & willingness to help everyone.
Ronnie believes that anyone seeking recovery should be met right where they are. They should have the opportunity to work through their issues alongside people who know what they are going through and can help lead them in a new direction.
