RCPA is pleased to announce that Jason Snyder, currently Regional Director with Pinnacle Treatment Centers and an RCPA Board member, will be joining RCPA staff as the Drug & Alcohol (D&A) Division Director.
Jason has extensive experience in the Drug and Alcohol field, including previously serving as Special Assistant to the Secretary of DHS and Policy and Communications Director at DDAP. Among other accomplishments, he specifically oversaw the Centers of Excellence (COE) initiative at the State. He has spoken extensively on D&A topics and is considered a true expert in the field. We are excited to have him join our team!
We also want to take a moment to thank Jack Phillips, our Director of Government Affairs, for stepping in and serving in this role for almost one year. What was intended as a temporary volunteer assignment turned into Jack capably serving a dual role for quite some time. He is now returning to his primary government affairs responsibilities.
