Title: Chemical Dependency Therapist
Company: Clarity Resolutions
Location: Fountain Valley, California, United States
Tracey J. Maken, Chemical Dependency Therapist at Clarity Resolutions, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Health Care Professionals for dedication, achievements, and leadership in substance abuse therapy.
Since 2000, Ms. Maken has found success as a chemical dependency therapist at Clarity Resolutions. In this position, she assists doctors with procedures, administers medications, decides treatment frequency, and talks with patients and family members to help the patients with substance abuse following their treatments. Ms. Maken became involved in her profession because she saw that she could make a difference through working in chemical dependency therapy. After obtaining her CPR certification, she was drawn to the field and enrolled in an emergency medical technician course. By chance, a physician at the hospital she worked with was an addiction specialist and began mentoring Ms. Maken, allowing her to shadow him with his patients.
Ms. Maken attended California State University, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. She later obtained a master’s degree in criminal justice with an emphasis in addiction from the University of California. Ms. Maken attributes her success to the support and influence of her parents, who were role models and instilled in her the importance of discussion and communication. She considers her high success rate with her patients to be her most important professional achievement, and in the coming years, she hopes to expand her practice and have other therapists join her in her work. Ms. Maken also wants to move from California to Kentucky, South Carolina, or the Tennessee area.
