Paul Alexander

Chief Executive Officer

Welcome to Northbound.

I want to personally thank you for visiting our website. Northbound is the culmination of many years of dedicated individuals designing the best possible approach for treating addiction and co-occurring disorders. We take this work very seriously, and honestly consider it a privilege to work with you and your loved ones. 

I’ve dedicated my life and career to serving others seeking a journey to recovery.

I wake up every day asking myself, “How can I best contribute to assisting another person in finding the miracle of recovery?”

I was fortunate enough as a young man to find recovery from heroin addiction. The reclamation of my life, spirituality, family, and health resulted in my dedication to this work.

As a clinician in the field, I’ve had the opportunity to watch many young men and women transform their lives. In particular, I’ve helped to guide many young men on the journey to recovery in finding their self-identity and self-esteem. Through designing the first collegiate-based residential treatment program in the late ’90s, I’ve accompanied many families and young adults from active addiction to long-term recovery. Seeing those individuals celebrate their life—a life full of responsibilities, family, and joy—is the reason I show up, every day. 

My dedication to you and every person who enters our addiction recovery process is to give 110% in assisting you in finding your path. Recovery isn’t easy, and it is certainly challenging. But I can attest that with professionals here at Northbound guiding the way, recovery is absolutely achievable. We will be with you every step of the way.
