Hank Talbot, LCSW, LADC Expands Role Into Clinical Outreach at Foundation House
Foundation House, an extended care treatment program for young men located in Portland, Maine, is pleased to announce that specialty therapist Hank Talbot, LCSW, LADC, will be expanding his role to include clinical outreach and business development. Over the past 35 years, Hank has been on the guiding edge of mental health and substance abuse treatment, including roles as program director and clinical supervisor at leading institutions. He also has over 15 years of experience in the industry outreach space at prominent programs, building a collaborative network to ensure proper placement for clients.
Since joining the Foundation House team as a specialty therapist in 2019, Hank has been an indispensable asset and ally for the program’s young men. He has also provided valuable experience and guidance for the rest of the clinical team, becoming a mentor in delivering a diverse therapeutic curriculum. Hank approaches this role with compassion, integrity, and empowering communication. These core traits translate well to the clinical outreach position, where he will build genuine relationships with referents, prospective clients, and their families to ensure the next young man finds lasting recovery and wellness at Foundation House.
On expanding his role in the Foxhole, Hank believes, “the best business development is delivering elite clinical services to our clients.” On what makes his clinically informed approach unique, Hank states, “I am interested in meeting a prospective client and their family exactly where they are and supporting them on where they want to go. I am focused on the content and services in talking with the industry rather than the presentation.” With this focus on authentic relationships, Hank will assist young men and their families in landing at Foundation House and walking beside them throughout their stay.
In an outreach capacity, Hank can give an intimate perspective into the comprehensive clinical program and empowering culture among the current Foundation House residents because he is in the trenches of early recovery with them, seeing the stages of change unfold. After 38 years of personal recovery himself, Hank notes, “at Foundation House I have found the same type of passion, connection, and culture among these young men that got me excited about sobriety from the start.”
