Julie Mehalick, PRS

Our Director

As the Program Director, Julie is responsible for the development, facilitation, and implementation of our sober living program, and oversees our team. She uses her years of experience as an alumni and staff member of Recovery Inn to ensure our residents are supported and understood during all stages of their stay.

Julie comes to Recovery Inn with a passion and drive to help others succeed. Julie also brings her own experience through the life of sober living to get where she is today. She started with Recovery Inn as House Manager and has been promoted several times to get to where she is now.

Additionally, Julie continues her education working towards becoming LCDC (Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor) so that she may continue to provide excellent care for our residents in sober living. She currently holds a certificate in Recovery Coaching and is a Peer Recovery Support Specialist.

Julie has passion for helping people who desire recovery and also strongly believes in the company’s approach to first-class treatment, stable and safe housing, and providing essential life skills. She knows firsthand that they were the missing links in her past attempts at recovery.
