Ed Milliken joined Safe Harbor Recovery Center as a volunteer in July 2022 and became a staff member in May 2023.
Prior to working with Safe Harbor, Ed retired from a career in educational non-profit management in June 2021. He became interested in the recovery field through my neighbors’ BOD work at a residential treatment facility and associated sober house. “Their commitment to the field and my interest in volunteering in a human services area prompted me to look at Recovery Coaching as a field of interest.”Ed works with the Job Launch staff in preparing individuals at various stages of recovery for reentry into the workplace or in moving from a “get well job” into a more long-term career focus. This could include resume preparation, job counseling/coaching, interview preparation, job/career matching. “The opportunity to help people in recovery gain/regain confidence in their abilities to successfully become employed and maintain stability in their professional and personal life is my inspiration in this work.”
Ed has a B.A. in English, a Master’s in Education and a Master’s in Business as well as all credits in an Ed.D. program. He is currently working toward his Certified Recovery Support Worker (CRSW) license.
