Debbie Stone, LCSW
Her educational background began by receiving her undergraduate degree in Psychology from Rider University in 1989. Post graduation she took her talents from New Jersey to Florida to join the Master’s in Social Work Program at Barry University. After graduation in 1997, through 2014 Debbie worked as a Support Coordinator (Case Management) for the Agency for Persons with Disabilities.
After being involved with adults and children for 17 years with varying degrees of developmental disabilities she learned patience, being a team player, communication with loved ones, and sensitivity to others. After gaining her license in 2012, she never imagined leaving individuals with disabilities to work in substance abuse, but as life changes so did Debbie.
As the Chief Clinical Director she will be overseeing both the Detox/Residential Program as well as the Intensive Outpatient Program. Her specialties are solution-focused therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and has additional expertise in couples’ counseling and family therapy. Being affected personally by having a love one who has struggled with addiction, she understands firsthand what families are going through.
She stands behind Daylight as one of the many dedicated treatment centers in South Florida that are rising above the negative Florida Press. She wishes that as a community we can all work together to create a cohesive recovery experience for the individuals we serve.
