Recovery Centers of America on Tuesday announced new chief executive officers for two of its treatment facilities. Michael Ogden, MPH, BAP, has been named CEO of RCA at Bracebridge Hall in Earleville, Maryland, and Kathryn “Kat” Stevens, LHMC, has been appointed CEO of RCA at Westminster (Massachusetts).
A 30-year industry veteran, Ogden has served as interim CEO at Bracebridge Hall since February, having previously served as executive director of RCA’s facility in Devon, Pennsylvania. In addition to various other leadership roles at behavioral health and addiction treatment programs throughout his career, Ogden was a petty officer in the U.S. Navy, where he served as a drug and alcohol counselor.
Bracebridge Hall, located in northeastern Maryland, offers drug and alcohol addiction treatment for patients of all ages, as well as specialized treatment for patients who have relapsed and patients with addictions who are also pregnant.
Stevens, meanwhile, has been the executive director at Westminster since 2017. In her 15-year career, she has spent 12 years treating substance use disorders and co-occurring mental health disorders. She has provided leadership in multiple modalities for RCA, including acute treatment services, inpatient and residential services, and community-based support professionals.
The Westminster facility, located west of Boston, is a 90-bed substance use disorder treatment facility that offers acute treatment, clinical stabilization, outpatient and medication-assisted treatment services, as well as an alumni network. The facility also offers specialized programs for patients who have relapsed, patients with trauma histories, older adults and first responders.
Overall, Recovery Centers of America operates a network of 11 drug and alcohol addiction treatment facilities.
