Our Dream Team

Christina Tucker

Founder/CEO

Thank you for visiting Dream Center for Recovery’s website.   It’s been said that it is nearly impossible to meet anyone that has not been touched by substance abuse and addiction in some way shape or form. My life is no exception.  My first experience of putting a loved one through drug and alcohol rehab treatment was many years ago.  That time period of my life really opened my eyes to the power and devastation that drug and alcohol addiction can inflict—not only on the addict but the entire family as well.    Moreover, it made me realize that while the vast majority of addicts dream of a life free from the chains of drug and alcohol addiction, for far too many it remains just that—a dream.

After hearing countless other stories similar to mine over the years, I ultimately made the decision to walk away from a successful career in the mortgage banking industry to dedicate myself full time to the pursuit of my vision/mission to create a world class substance abuse recovery center dedicated to helping people fully realize the dream of lifelong recovery from drug and alcohol addiction.    Thanks to the tireless help, dedication and passion of our Dream Team and other substance abuse treatment specialists,  I am extremely proud and confident to say that the Dream Center for Recovery is firmly committed and ideally equipped to help you or a loved one transform the dream of addiction free living into reality.
