Clint Green

Director of Admissions

Clint Green admits that he had never considered working in treatment until he was a client in treatment. A published author who wrote and produced in the entertainment industry under a pseudonym, Green turned to drugs and alcohol as a coping mechanism that quickly careened out of control.  “Before I knew it, I was doing rails and going completely off the rails,” he says.  “I ended up in rehab so broken and beaten, all I needed was someone to be nice to me. One of the resident assistants there was, which changed my life.”  That resident assistant inspired him and coincidentally, became the coworker who trained him at his first job in the field. A passion for connecting with both potential clients and their family members is what led him to admissions.  “I put my parents through so much for so long; I can’t help but feel compelled to help others. The most rewarding part of this job is seeing the change that occurs from that initial phone call to the client’s discharge, and beyond — but I’m not just talking about the client. The change I see in the entire family dynamic and structure: that’s what brings things big picture.”
