Jamie Hughes
Jamie Hughes
Recovery Coach

In August of 2007, Jamie Hughes was admitted as a patient to CeDAR due to many years of drug and alcohol abuse.  After completing the 90-day program she was offered a position at Sprint which turned into 8 years tenure with the company. Jamie’s background is in quality assurance, business and consumer credit, escalation support and team management.  Working for CeDAR is a dream come true for her.

“To be able to give back by helping others through their addictions as a recovery care manager is something I never dreamed possible. CeDAR truly is a place of miracles and I am so blessed to be a part of it.” 

Meghan White
Meghan White
Alumni / Volunteer Coordinator

Alumnus of CeDAR, Meghan White has been sober since December 28th, 2011 and has, from that date, patiently been re-building her life from the group up. Amidst a new phase of her life-long construction, she comes to CeDAR with a determined sense of energy that so often heralds a new beginning. Her strong value of connectivity is what enables her to pave a path of open and empathetic communication when assisting individuals and their families. She aims to pursue education in alternative health which she would then like to use as a modality of healing, available to those recovering from substance disorder.
