Shane Phillips, MSW, LCAS, is grateful for the opportunity to return to Red Oak Recovery® as Executive Director of the men's campus. Shane is a founding member of the team and helped Red Oak open its doors in 2014. He is passionate about working with young adults and their families. Shane has worked in a variety of treatment settings serving adolescents and young adults with co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders. Most recently, he worked as a clinician at Duke CAST program, an outpatient clinic at Duke University Medical Center.
While getting his MSW at UNC-Chapel Hill, Shane was a recipient of the Governor's Institute Scholarship, and he received a SAMHSA fellowship through the NAADAC National Minority Fellowship Program for Addiction Counselors. He was a member of the collegiate recovery community at UNC and served for a year as the President of the Carolina Recovery Group. After completing his master's program, Shane supervised the development of a grant-funded initiative to provide peer support services to overdose survivors in Wake County.
Shane believes deeply in a young person's capacity to initiate and sustain long-term recovery from addiction. In his current role, he manages the young adult men's campus and works to ensure that clients and their families receive compassionate, evidence-based treatment.
"Shane re-joins our team with over a decade of experience and specialization in treating the young adult population," says Jack Kline, LPCS, LCAS, CCS, CTT-2, MAC, President and Founder. "He brings with him a depth of knowledge in collegiate recovery, research, and the latest trends in treatment for young adults struggling with substance abuse and mental health issues. We could not be more pleased that Shane has returned to share his talents with our team and clients."
