The leadership of Casa Treatment Center is thrilled to announce that Ms. Nely Meza-Andrade, LMFT, MBB, will be joining Casa Treatment Center as our new Executive Director/CEO as of July 1, 2021. Casa Treatment Center is embarking on a transformative change as we add Drug-Medical services to our outpatient program and overall seek to expand our services as we are witnessing an unprecedented nationwide spike in overdose deaths to record levels. Ms. Meza-Andrade’s years of experience as a clinician and leader in the field of addiction recovery abundantly qualify her to lead Casa through this change and beyond.

She also manages her private practice as a psychotherapist.
