Phil, who is originally from southern Maryland, moved to Florida in October of 2009. He has
lived and thrived in long term recovery ever since. Phil firmly believes that his time of service in
the Marines has helped him to learn the value of hard work, dedication, and perseverance.
These are values and attributes which Phil applies daily to his position and responsibilities at
Ebb Tide Treatment Center, as well as throughout his own life and personal recovery. Phil has
worked in the treatment field for about 5 years and loves having the opportunity to help people
grow in their own personal recovery. He feels that being an addict in recovery himself, it helps
him to better understand the needs of our clients and allows him to be an example of what
recovery can do for all of us.
