New Vitae Wellness and Recovery is happy to announce the addition of Jonathan “Todd” Barlow to our team as the Director of Addictions Services.  Mr. Barlow has spent more than 25 years in the addiction and co-occurring fields of behavioral health.  A graduate of the Hahnemann University graduate school program, his approach to recovery blends traditional addiction and psychiatric treatment modalities, individual and family coaching, and 12 Step Peer Support.

“New Vitae Wellness and Recovery recognizes the impact of substance use and addictions in recovery,” said New Vitae President and CEO Judith Yanacek.  “We are so pleased to learn from Todd’s skills and to further develop the array of substance use services we are able to provide.”

To introduce Barlow to our larger community and further engage in discussion regarding the challenges associated with substance use treatment, New Vitae Wellness and Recovery would like to invite neighbors and colleagues to an upcoming training, entitled, “Engagement Strategies for those with Co-Occurring Disorders.”  The discussion, co-sponsored with Marywood University, also will feature conversation with Pam DeHart, LPC CAC, and will examine the unique challenges associated with treatment of co-occurring disorders.  The complimentary training will be held on Thursday, March 17th at 1 p.m. at the West End Fire Company, 1319 Park Avenue, Quakertown, PA.  Continuing Education Credits are available to purchase through the National Association of Social Workers (NASW).

“I am very excited to be bringing my skills and experience to New Vitae Wellness and Recovery,” Barlow said.  “There is no greater joy than being a part of the recovery process of an individual and his or her family.  I am so proud to be able to contribute to the vision of holistic wellness espoused by New Vitae, and I look forward to applying my experience through our array of services.”
