Stacey Schaeffer, CADC-CAS, M.R.T.
Program Director- Anderson
Hi, my name is Stacy and I am the Program Director here at right Roads Recovery in Anderson. I have been in recovery for 7 years and in the field for 5. Like most of the staff members here, I found sobriety through this program and met many wonderful, positive influences along the way. I recently graduated from Shasta College and am currently pursuing my BA in Psychology. I am a huge proponent for furthering your education no matter where you are in life. It’s never too late! I love working with kids and truly believe that with the right guidance, motivation, and education, anyone can find recovery at any time in their life. I have two beautiful children, Faith, 9, and Gage, 6, who are the light of my life. Throughout my time here at Right Roads I have rediscovered my passion for the outdoors as well as playing and coaching soccer and have been blessed with the opportunity to coach the Girls Varsity Soccer Team at Anderson High School for the last three years. I am truly grateful for the impact Right Roads Recovery has had on my life and I hope that you can experience the same changes in yours……
Tony Brigman, CADC-CAS, M.R.T.
Program Director- Redding
My name is Tony and I am a counselor at both the Anderson and Redding locations. I have been in recovery since 2008 and I remain heavily involved in the AA community. I have been working at Right Roads since 2009 and recently opened our satellite office in Redding this year. I also found my sobriety at Right Roads in Anderson and remain connected to many of the people I got sober with. I am a family man at heart, happily married for many years with 4 amazing children. I have a sincere desire to help clients and their families recover as a family unit, not just individually. This is a concept we utilize here at Right Roads, as we understand the importance of the family role in one’s longterm sobriety goals. As for my spare time, I love to play softball, ride my motorcycle, and spend time with my family. I am also the coach for the Right Roads Recovery softball team that plays against other facilities each year in the local tournament honoring National Recovery Month. If I could say only one thing to you, it would be a quote that I was told when I was lost and had no hope left….. “ If you are willing to seek out help, there will always be help there waiting for you.”
Todd Kuhr, RADT-I
Counselor In Training
Hello, my name is Todd and I am a counselor at Right Roads in Anderson. I have been working here since 2013. I am a graduate of this program from 2011 where I finally got sober after 33 years. I feel as though I am living proof that it’s never too late to turn your life around and find recovery. I am very grateful for the opportunity given to me by this program, as it saved my life. It is also the reason I met my wife and was led into this line of work. I feel like this was God’s plan for me and the reason I ended up at Right Roads to begin with. Since getting clean, I have also been given the chance to be a mentor to young teens through the Manter House and have met many amazing people along the way. I am happily married with 2 children, Kaci Lynn who is 28, and Todd who is 18. In my spare time I love to fish, read, be with the family, and get closer to God as I know Him. Recovery Happens! I am proof that this program works if you work it!
Dan Millen, M-DIV, CPE, CADC-CAS
Volunteer, Disabled Veteran
My name is Dan and I am a counselor at our Anderson facility. I was born and raised in Toledo Ohio and later became an AirTraffic Controller on the Enterprise in the U.S. Navy. I was also in radio with CBS San Fransisco, working as an announcer, copyright, and producer. I used drugs from the age of 18 to 55 and finally got clean at a VA outpatient clinic. It took me 2 1/2 years and 5 relapses before finally deciding to do the 12 steps. Since that time, I got the “psychic” change from my Higher Power. My childhood hurts no longer have power over me. The idea of taking drugs now seems foolish. I believe this was due to the work of a Higher Power and today I am a Certified Addiction Counselor taking this message to others. My hobbies include writing books and screenplays, and I still do radio programming for Christian Radio. I love to watch sports and try help others wherever I can. I also perform as Paul the Apostle, reciting 1st and 2nd Corinthians on a Christian Circuit at churches, prisons, schools, and hospitals across the country. I am a volunteer in all my positions and I only hope to give back to others what was once given to me: an opportunity for a New Life in Recovery.
David Horstman, RADT-I
Counselor In Training
My name is David and I am currently an intern at Right Roads. It is because of the people who helped me during my recovery that I decided to pursue this career. I am very grateful for the enormous role that Right Roads has played in helping me find long-term sobriety. I recently finished the required education component and I now need to complete my practicum hours in order to become a Certified Substance Abuse Counselor. My ultimate goal is to work with local teens struggling with addiction and offer them the inspiration and education they deserve in order to lead happy and successful drug-free lives. There are many new programs and opportunities arising for the youth of Shasta County and I am proud to say that I am going to have a role in providing these services to adolescents in need. Some of my hobbies include ice hockey, roller hockey, hiking with my Siberian Husky (in the winter!), and playing the guitar. Music played a huge role in my recovery, as I found it therapeutic to write and play new things. I am also involved with other non-profits such as Genocide No More and I try to volunteer with organizations I believe in. Right Roads Recovery Programs is definitely on that list. We are here to help those who desire help and that is how recovery happens…..
Hi my name is Dave and I have worked here at Right Roads for 6 years. I have seen many faces come and go but the one thing that remains constant is this communities’ need for a facility such as ours. I truly feel as though we have had a major impact here in Anderson by providing a safe place that fosters recovery. We have been around for a long time and weathered many storms and will continue to do so for years to come. I am a proud father and grandfather and I enjoy fishing, camping, and anything outdoors. I have lived in Anderson my whole life, so I feel connected to the people we serve and understand the struggles we all face. I look forward to the many success stories that will come from our efforts as a community and I am proud to be a part of it.
