As co-founder of Origins Recovery Centers, Ben Levenson brings the defining vision and executive leadership to the Origins’ organization. Ben’s deep love for recovery and compassion for the chemically dependent was born out of his own harrowing battle with and recovery from chronic drug and alcohol addiction.
Through his extraordinary recovery experience, Ben launched Origins Recovery Center as an enduring beacon of hope to those afflicted and their families. Ben has charged Origins with a legacy to continually develop, improve and provide highly-effective systems of comprehensive drug and alcohol addiction treatment. Ben’s passion keeps him on the “front lines” where he speaks publicly on addiction treatment issues and lobbies for greater availability of quality treatment.
Ben enjoys frequent interaction with Origins’ clients and their families through various workshops and discussions he conducts at the campus. In his personal time he takes pleasure in being with his family, playing golf, fly fishing and traveling abroad.
