Suzanne Thistle began her recovery journey in 1987, which led her to become a licensed alcohol and drug counselor. Her professional addiction experience spans over 20 years, and she currently teaches about substance use and misuse at a local university. Her roles have included executive and clinical director of two agencies, a manager, and a therapist. While serving in these positions, she received the “Legislative Advocacy Award” for addiction professionals and the “Treatment Agency of the Year Award,” both from her peers. Suzanne enjoys being with family, traveling, hiking, and relaxing on Newfound Lake during time off.
Primary area of expertise:
Suzanne is a licensed alcohol and drug counselor of 16 years and worked in prevention prior. I am also a person in long-term recovery, 34 years. Her road to recovery was not an easy one, laced with a traumatic childhood and emotional pain. During her entire recovery path, reading and studying addiction, attending therapy, getting an undergraduate degree in Health Education: Wellness Management and a Masters’ degree in Counseling Psychology with a substance abuse concentration gave her the ability to live life on life’s terms. Suzanne thanks God every day for life second to none. Suzanne's dreams are coming true, and now she can help others through her work and her professional and personal experience.
