With an unwavering commitment to the individual journeys of those living with Substance Use Disorder (SUD), Daniel shares his insights into the culture and the unique mission that defines Wayspring. 

A Culture of Understanding  

“What I love about Wayspring is the culture,” begins Daniel. “It’s different here—there’s a tangible sense of community and collective purpose that you don’t always find elsewhere.” At Wayspring, the belief in all pathways to recovery stands paramount. This ethos doesn’t just shape the services we provide to our members; it permeates every interaction, every decision, and every goal. 

Aligning Personal Views with Organizational Mission 

Daniel continues, “I’m very passionate when it comes to people choosing their own path in recovery, and that’s why I love working here.” Wayspring’s recognition of medicated-assisted treatment and other recovery methods reflects a broader, more inclusive understanding of recovery. It’s this alignment of personal convictions with organizational philosophy that empowers team members like Daniel to thrive. 

A Welcoming Community

From day one, Daniel experienced Wayspring’s culture of support – a culture that ensures every member of the team, from the newest recruit to the most seasoned specialist, feels welcomed, valued, and empowered to contribute to our mission. “When I first started here, the messages and emails I received from colleagues created an immediate sense of belonging,” he recalls. It’s a culture where the well-being of both staff and members is prioritized, fostering a collaborative atmosphere that’s focused on shared goals and mutual success. 

Changing Perspectives

Transitioning from a hospital setting to Wayspring, Daniel experienced a shift in perspective. “Wayspring showed me that these members that we meet with are people and not just a number. You can really see that people care here.” It’s this realization that has deeply influenced the way he interacts with members, always prioritizing dignity, respect, and empathy. The focus is on working collectively to achieve a common goal—ensuring that each member receives the personalized care and support they need.
