John Headley, Substance Abuse Counselor
John Headley A.K.A., Johnny H., has been in the treatment field off and on for over 30 years. Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, he has been living in Las Vegas since 1999. Johnny is recovering from many years of substance abuse, dereliction, and homelessness. In 2007 he decided, with the help of a mentor, that he would be able to change his life around but to do so, he would have to commit to helping others achieve similar goals.
Johnny recently received his associate of arts degree (with high honors) from College of Southern Nevada and is working on his Bachelor of Social Work at UNR.
Currently a member of the Phi-Thetta-Kappa honor society and a Nevada Certified Peer Recovery Support Specialist (Supervisor), he is also going for CADC certification and has dedicated his life to helping others recover from a seemingly hopeless state of mind, body, and spirit. Johnny is happy to be part of the clinical team at Vegas Stronger in Las Vegas.
His favorite quote is, “If you love what you do, you never have to work again” (unknown origin).
