Team Member Spotlight

Juan Acedo, Lead Case Manager

This month we’re spotlighting Juan Acedo, someone who has been with Sunrise Recovery Ranch for nearly 20 years. Juan is a lead case worker who has both personal and professional experience with addiction. His favorite quote is by Theodore Roosevelt: “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.” 

After battling a substance use disorder for nearly 20 years, Juan sought treatment and has been in recovery since May 2000. Since then, he has been working in the substance use treatment field, helping others find their paths to recovery. His experience with addiction allows him to bring greater understanding and compassion to his work as a case manager at Sunrise Recovery Ranch 

Thanks to Sunrise Recovery Ranch, my daughter was able to get the lasting recovery she deserved from her addiction and her co-occurring mental health disorder. I am super grateful!
