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 our staff 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.

Lesia Wortham


I came into this field because my background consisted of addicts and addictions. My passion began when I saw the faces of children lost in the system due to the lack of help available to their parents.  I returned to Recovery Unlimited because they exhibit the same passion and desire to help every person that walks through the door.  It’s A Family Thing. and I Love It.

The best part about my job here is watching others grow and assisting them through that process. I believe it is important to help people that may otherwise be stigmatized by society.

Elishia Salazar


I am a full time student until I get my Bachelors degree to get licensed as a CAS

I have had personal issues with addiction and to be able to help people to see that they can do it and be sober and live a long healthy sober life.

I get to help a population that society feels is a lost cause and help them to get to a better place.

I have been in this field for 7 years; I like to believe that transformation is possible and I see it happen every day. I am motivated to help the family system and the individual learn healthy means of dealing with mental health, substance abuse, and emotional difficulties.

Judson Willis


It feels good knowing that your work makes a difference. I’m the type of person who’s up for an adventure and enjoys something new every day. In this field I’m working with people every day and no two people are truly identical. With counseling, I’m always growing and learning about both myself and others.  Each day brings something different, and each client provides me with a new perspective. I get to witness transformative change and be a part of helping change lives.

Margaret Wallace


I have always had a particular interest in working with clients involved with the criminal justice system. It is a misunderstood population, but I love the people I get to work with because of who they are, what they can teach others, and how beautiful each individual is. Getting to witness the changes that someone can make in their life is truly an honor. Being a small part of that journey means the world to me.

Joseph Iovino


I have been an intern at Recovery Unlimited since January 2022 and will complete my coursework from UCCS in May 2023. Before Recovery Unlimited, I worked as a music therapist for 4 years running groups in addiction recovery and with homeless populations, as well as working with kids and teens who have experienced the foster care system, adoption, or disruptions in their family system. My favorite part of being at Recovery Unlimited is being welcomed into client’s stories, hearing what they are willing to share, and getting to walk alongside them on their journey.

I enjoy seeing the change that takes place as people move out of addiction and into recovery.  I am passionate about helping others create positive change in their lives by addressing substance use and mental health needs.

I entered the mental health field to share hope and healing with others that are on their own personal path to wholeness. I am honored with the opportunity to come along side people as they navigate through this journey called life. I get to provide encouragement, resources, education, and compassionate accountability to guide them in overcoming obstacles which are preventing them from enjoying the fullness of life.

Sandra Dunlap


I have always had a passion for helping individuals and wanting them to succeed in life.  I believe that the ability to heal and growth lies within everyone.  As a counseling Intern I’m grateful for the chance to be a “sponge” at Recovery Unlimited.
