Recovery Unlimited All Staff


Dawn Martin

Elizabeth "Dawn" Martin

Owner, Member Manager | CAS


I started Recovery Unlimited in 2000 after I received my Certified Addiction Counselor III (CACIII); at first I was operating out of a one room office, which has grown to two facilities, and 25 staff members serving over 500 clients. I am so proud of the quality of our staff and their passion for recovery and truly caring about our clients. Some of them have been with us for almost a decade. I enjoy supervising up and coming clinicians who are learning and excited to become part of the healing process. Helping others is my purpose in life.

Medical Team

Jacqui Jordan

Nurse Practitioner

I enjoy watching people improve their lives. I take addiction services personally, which is why I work in this field.

Tiffany Hollis


I have been in the medical field for going on 5 years now. I got into the medical field because i enjoy helping others and if I made at least one person smile I  know I helped even just a little bit because sometimes all someone needs is a smile and a helping hand. I enjoy what i do because its not a job for the gentle hearted but to be gentle and patient while helping and seeing light come back to peoples eyes makes everything worth it.

Tarah Thevenot

Nurse Practitioner

I have been an NP for 1 year with primary care experience being my background. Being in the Psych field is completely new to me but it is where my true passion lies due to being able to truly make a difference in patients’ lives. The biggest factor that made me go into the field was seeing patients come to the hospital that needed more care with addiction and substance abuse that really wanted to change but were not given the resources or time to get help. The biggest benefit I get from stepping into the Psych field is being able to see families reunite and see the drastic change in their lives towards a healthier and happier lifestyle.
