Donna Cavagnetto

Clinical Lead, New Richmond

Donna is a firm believer in adapting and evolving with life’s changes as they occur. As a result, she decided to “reinvent” herself later in life. As her children got older, she returned to school after 28 years away and ultimately completed an associate’s degree in chemical dependency counseling. She then earned a bachelor’s in human services and counseling psychology and holds a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor II license. Donna has learned so much from her clients and their families. She approaches addictions directly, and she confronts enabling and codependency in her family-day groups. She believes addiction is a family problem and that change can occur for anyone at any time. Though her children are grown, Donna is also mom to two cats, Butters and Stoche.

Alice Patterson

Clinical Lead, New Richmond

Alice, a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor II, started her journey at Adams Recovery Center while completing her degree from the University of Cincinnati. At ARC, the supportive staff and supervision allow her to thrive, learn and grow as a counselor and a human being. Alice’s mission as a counselor is to show clients empathy, provide them support and guide them through their journey of recovery. She assists clients with developing healthy behaviors and thought processes and supports them as they process the emotions tied to their life experiences. Alice’s personal time is spent with family, working on outdoor projects, listening to different genres of music, keeping up with current events, writing and learning more about the world. She feels honored to be in this field and to be of service to individuals who suffer from addiction.

They just don’t know it yet,” she says. Cassie also is a self-proclaimed nerd. She is at her happiest while playing video games, watching movies and reading.
