Meet James Haggerty

Professional Addiction Recovery Executive

James HaggertyI always think of Father Martin’s Ashley’s (now Ashley Addiction Treatment Center) tagline for years “Our sole purpose is to heal”. I was drawn to work in this field because although I might not have the ability to heal, I do believe that I can help provide “hope”. I have had the privilege of working for unbelievable organizations, and have met or worked with some of the brightest minds in the SUD field, today I can call them colleagues. Colleagues and friends that are some of the most compassionate, empathetic, mission driven wonderful people in the world.

I am indeed blessed. I personally started out working in construction for a few years out of college, I worked for a Wall St firm and later started my own Financial Consulting Company. I started working in the Substance Use Disorder field in 1995 as an AmeriCorps Volunteer in a counselor in training position. In short order I moved from the counseling end of the field into more of the Administrative/ Executive suite. I spent most of my time as Admissions Director while supervising Utilization Review, Quality Assurance, Marketing, Billing, Accounts Receivable and IT. After a family relocation I worked exclusively in the C level positions both through my Consulting firm, Apogee System Consultants LLC and outside as a direct employee. I was personally responsible for hundreds of employees and facilities with 50 – 150 beds. I have always wanted to make a difference and pass on to others what people have passed on to me and my family over the years.

I currently serve as Board Chair for the ECHO Foundation and am on the Advisory Board of RAE Health. I also work with the St. James Catholic Church Hope Ministry. And, I advise and volunteer for other various Non-Profits in New Jersey.Our sole purpose is to heal
