Jodi Holzemer, LADC joined Gateway Recovery Center for an opportunity where she could utilize her passion for creating and problem solving to drive results and implement change in people’s lives to overcome adversity when faced with substance use and co-occurring disorders.
In life, Jodi believes that kindness is everything and brings her life experience, both personally and professionally and pairs it with the opportunity to provide specific care, guidance and education for each guest she has the honor of working with. At Gateway Recovery Center, Jodi’s ability to connect with guests from a place of understanding builds trust and creates the opportunity for ongoing support in coordination with the full clinical team and aftercare providers.
Outside of work, Jodi enjoys playing every sport, but will never follow a specific team. She enjoys road trips and takes pride in being an incredible mom to her two boys. With unmatched energy and always going the extra mile, you will be surprised that Jodi will always choose water over coffee.
In 10 years, Jodi sees herself halfway through her doctorate and is looking to advance options in our industry to address the changing needs of those with substance use, mental health and co-occurring disorders. Jodi is excited for the countless options available to guests that allows her to guide specific ongoing care in collaboration with the comprehensive care team at Gateway Recovery Center.
