Justin Baksh Assumes Role as Executive Director
Foundations Wellness Center is proud to announce the recent promotion of Justin Baksh to the position of Executive Director! Justin has been with Foundations as its Clinical Director since the company’s inception in June, 2016.
Justin’s primary purpose as Clinical Director was to ensure client care was well maintained throughout the company. Justin was held accountable on a daily basis for the quality of treatment services to being delivered to clients, and has been held in high regard for exceeding standards of care set by the Department of Children and Families and the Joint Commission.
Justin brings with him almost a decade of professional experience helping individuals recover from addiction. While serving in the United States Marine Corps, Justin embraced dedication, adaptability, and commitment as a way of life. This structured background and philosophy serves as the foundation of Justin’s programming implementation and development.
Justin began his career in the substance abuse field as a Behavioral Health Technician while working towards his BS in Psychology. Through this early work, Justin found his true calling and enrolled in Nova Southeastern University where he obtained his MS in Mental Health Counseling.
In addition to serving in multiple administrative roles he has substantial clinical experience as a Primary Therapist. Justin’s unique perspective on program development also comes from opportunities had through working admissions in a detox facility, operations at large and small facilities, and therapist roles at the PHP, IOP, OP level of care, group facilitation, and per diem work at different facilities.
Justin’s dedication to the clients he serves comes from an eclectic viewpoint of addiction. His holistic perspective conceptualizes addiction as a symptom of an underlying issue related to faulty core beliefs, irrational thinking, and fears experienced in life that condition an individual to resort to the use of substances to cope. Justin’s eclectic philosophy is evident in the daily programming and variety of services offered at Foundations Wellness Center.
As this role is taken over, we are very excited to witness the growth and development of both our clinical program and our team of dedicated employees. We are overwhelmed with gratitude for this shift in responsibilities for Justin Baksh, and we look forward to the continued success of our program and our company as a whole.
“The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.”
