Pinnacle Treatment Centers Network has hired Jason Snyder as its newest Regional Director of Outpatient Services in Eastern Pennsylvania. Snyder, a leader in the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services, was most recently the Special Assistant to the Human Services Secretary. In that role he assisted the Secretary and other executive staff on the establishment of policies around addiction initiatives. He has been a frequent speaker to stakeholders across the Commonwealth.
Snyder also oversaw Governor Wolf’s Centers of Excellence (of which two are Pinnacle Treatment Centers Network locations.) This is the Governor’s largest investment in fighting the states opioid epidemic. It has created widespread awareness for the necessity of treatment.
His 20-year career has included public relations, communications and non profit management. His passion for addiction stems from the two overdose deaths of his siblings and his personal recovery from addiction. He is a frequent speaker on the topic. Jason is a lifelong Pennsylvanian and has been in recovery for over 6 years.
“Pennsylvania has been an important place for Pinnacle Treatment Centers Network. We have worked closely with the Governor’s office and his cabinet and have had several of our locations named as Centers of Excellence. We are thrilled that Jason has joined us – due to both his personal and professional experience,” Joe Pritchard, Chief Executive Office (CEO) of Pinnacle Treatment Centers Network, said.
“I came to the world of addiction and recovery through family tragedy and my personal struggle with addiction. As a person in long-term recovery, work in this field is a calling and important to me both personally and professionally. Pinnacle works daily to help individuals who suffer from this disease. I am heartened to join their team and continue my work to help Pennsylvanians suffering from this disease find meaningful, lasting recovery,” Snyder said.
