CAI Spotlight: Ana Moreno

Ana is our Associate Director of Service. We first met her back in 2018 when she took our 3-Day training in Nashville, TN. We love Ana for her drive, smarts and easy-going, down-to-earth nature.
We recently interviewed Ana so we could share a little more of her with you.

What’s your favorite thing about working with families?

I love seeing the healing through the power of love! Many if not all of the families upon our meeting are in crisis. Being able to give hope through healing is very powerful. As time goes by, the best gift is seeing how families have progressed and their continued commitment to keep moving from good to great.

What drew you to work in this industry?

My first internship while working my master’s degree was in the family program at a hospital-based Addiction Treatment Program. I was fortunate enough to be an intern there for one year. I quickly fell in love with working with the Person Of Concern and their families. I saw the love underneath the fear and how love drove the survival skills the families used to protect their substance-using loved one. Upon completing my internship I was hired as an employee and was then able to work directly with the afflicted individuals. I then further learned about how devastating this disease is. I learned how everyone suffers even though one person is using. I am in awe of the power of recovery for all! 20+ years now and I still feel the same!

How has ARISE® Comprehensive Care with Invitational Intervention changed your practice?

The ARISE Comprehensive Care model has changed my approach to include more generational perspectives. The Recovery Message is another powerful tool that becomes the focus behind the why the family is healing while respecting the past and anticipating a stronger and healthier future.

What career achievement are you most proud of?

I feel very accomplished when my partner and I opened a very successful Intensive Outpatient Substance Abuse practice. We helped many people and sold the practice after 8 years. Currently my partner and I have created another practice where we provide interventions and clinical case consulting and management.

What’s your favorite inspirational quote?

“People will forget that you said, people will forget what you did but, they will not forget how you made them feel”. ~Maya Angelou
