Serra worked in a large residential inpatient facility as well as a sober living and outpatient facility which assisted those with dual diagnoses of mental health and addiction in roles from Mental Health Technician to Intake and Admissions to Case Manager over the course of nearly four years. When she heard Danny Andino’s story, she was inspired by the passion and commitment exhibited by the driven team at Arise Recovery Centers. Serra was instantly moved to reach out and determine how her experience, empathy, and enthusiasm could assist those who are seeking healing through recovery. Serra joined ARISE and brought with her knowledge and passion for assisting clients to find empowerment and authenticity while overcoming barriers to recovery and self-discovery.
