As Business Development Director, Peg Harrington brings a remarkable commitment of service, enthusiasm, and passion to the Brookdale team. A person in long-term recovery, Peg experienced her own personal struggles with substance abuseand has been sober since March 25, 2013.
Peg never intended on working in the field of addiction treatment, but as fate would have it, here she is. As an active and committed member to her own personal recovery fellowship and 12-Step work, Peg spent much of her free time helping others find treatment services before ever entering the industry herself. Whether someone was in need of detox, inpatient treatment, recovery homes, or halfway houses, Peg was always there to be of service and give back what was so freely given to her. Alongside her commitment to her own personal recovery, outside of work Peg enjoys meditation, taking her golden retriever to the dog beach, and traveling.
Through her fellowship work, Peg was presented with the opportunity to begin working in the field and help reach more people in need. Before coming to work for Brookdale, Pegheld the position of Treatment Solution Advocate at Enlightened Solutions from 2017 to 2019. As Business Development Director, Peg hopes to connect people that are suffering from addiction to the finest clinical care possible. She also looks to support and contribute to her Brookdale team, while continuing to learn from her colleagues and leadership.
