Patricia “Pat” Meyer, a clinician at Centerstone in Alton, was recently awarded the Ellen T. Quinn Memorial Award by the Community Behavioral Healthcare Association of Illinois.
This award is given to an individual with outstanding support and commitment in the delivery of quality community behavioral health services to individuals with mental illness and/or substance use disorders in Illinois by either a behavioral health professional or a CBHA member agency.
“Pat continues to be a positive, reliable, and exemplary advocate for individuals who struggle with addiction,” says Stacy Seitz, assistant director with Centerstone. “Pat’s vast knowledge within the field of the legal system, substance use, treatment, and recovery process is not duplicable.”
Meyer (shown) was nominated by her supervisor and fellow staff for her outstanding work. Meyer has worked with Centerstone and it’s legacy organizations for more than 30 years.
“Through her work, Pat consistently shows empathy and compassion for her clients, as well as the staff who have worked with her and were fortunate enough to learn from her experience,” says Janette Heath, vice president of clinical excellence at Centerstone.
