Mental Health Companions
Luke Chittick has been working in the recovery field since 2009.
Luke started in this industry as a Counselor at Beit T’Shuvah, one of the largest non-profit residential Treatment facilities in the nation, where he acquired over 6,000 clinically supervised hours. In December 2012, Luke joined Transcend Recovery Community as the Program Director for two of their Sober Livings. In his capacity as Program Director, Luke oversaw operations for the two facilities, facilitated communication between the Intensive Outpatient clinicians and house staff, and ensured continuity of care for all residents.
Luke’s role often required therapeutically-oriented intervention with clients in need of additional support.
In July of 2015, Luke, along with the Chief Operating Officer of Transcend, created and implemented a comprehensive recovery curriculum for a new sober living called, the Verve, with particular attention to the structure, necessary therapeutic programming and accountability required for the early stages of recovery. Luke later transitioned to Director of Business Development for Transcend in January 2016. In November of 2016, sparked by the desire to return to more clinically-focused and direct client care, Luke joined Patrick Hart Consultants as a Case Manager. In April of 2019, Luke founded 10west Recovery Services.
10west Recovery provides a range of services that include recovery coaching, life-skills mentoring, case management and sober companions.
Luke’s extensive experience with clients suffering from substance abuse, anxiety and psychotic disorders provides him a wealth of strategies and interventions to employ with individuals and families in crisis. He is a certified Field Model Crisis Interventionist, holds a B.A. in Communications from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and has been sober since January 2009.
