Rick Dauer, LADC
Rick, who has been a chemical health professional for more than 35 years, was an early advocate for gender-responsive and trauma-informed care. As co-author of Helping Men Recover, the first trauma-informed treatment curriculum for men, Rick has trained clinicians across the U.S. and Canada and presented on men’s issues at numerous national conferences. With a resume that includes being a Clinical Director at Meridian Behavioral Health and River Ridge Treatment Centers, as well as serving as a consultant for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota and the Minnesota Department of Human Services, Rick brings expertise from the provider, insurer and governmental perspectives.
Rick, who is grateful for 38 years of continuous personal recovery, received the 2016 Leadership Award from the Minnesota Association of Resources for Recovery and Chemical Health (MARRCH). In 2018 Rick was again honored by MARRCH with their President’s Award.
I have a passion for underserved people and communities and am grateful that The Family Hub can offer care to those who otherwise may not have access.
