Chas Lankford, RCP | Program Director
Passionate about his purpose in life, Chas oversees all aspects of day-to-day operations and Case Management at Westport House. He continually seeks opportunities to improve our services to ensure that clients receive a high quality, individualized experience during their time at our sober living program.
Chas is a dynamic leader, both in the local recovery community and at Westport House. His incredible passion stems from over 26 years of personal recovery and extensive experience working with individuals suffering from addiction and co-occurring disorders.
Before coming to Turnbridge, Westport Houses’s parent company, over 8 years ago, Chas spent 6 years at the Children’s Center and was one of the pioneering Case Manager’s in the New Choices Adolescent Treatment program. After the birth of his daughter, Chas spent 10 years in the IT world as a hardware and network technician, but dearly missed the sense of purpose and fulfillment that comes from working with people in need of substance abuse/mental health help. In 2011, a Case Management opportunity opened at Turnbridge and Chas eagerly jumped back into the field and became a part of the Turnbridge family, working at every Phase, in many capacities.
Chas graduated Summa Cum Laude from Albertus Magnus College, with a general studies BA. Originally intending on continuing in either Business or Law school, Chas returned to his true calling in Human Service. Chas is a CCAR-trained Recovery Coach Professional.
