Sue Bright, Executive Director

Sue Bright comes to us with almost three decades of experience in the addiction treatment field. Prior to joining NDFW in 2018, she served as Vice President of Patient Services and Quality of Livengrin Foundation in Bensalem, Pennsylvania. Sue specializes in intake, admissions, and clinical services, and is led by the principal that those who are seeking treatment services deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. She has tremendous experience developing relationships with private insurers, working collaboratively with staff to ensure growth and to develop Quality measures that track the success of services over time.

Sue is passionate about helping anyone enter a recovery lifestyle and is particularly passionate about helping women do so. She has consistently noticed a difference in the way society views addiction in men and women, which continues to flow into the aspect of recovery. To be able to lead an organization that works specifically with women, including pregnant and parenting women, is a point of pride for Sue. Sue demonstrates her belief daily that we can make a difference in someone’s life with a little kindness, care and compassion at a time that they feel least worthy of it.

Sue’s colleagues say she is surprisingly good at staying calm in the midst of chaos, letting others know how much they matter with a hug, cooking wholesome meals, and mentoring others to be their best. Her volunteer experience includes working with Employee Assistance Program groups, fundraising efforts, and advocacy groups to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to achieve long term recovery.

Personally, Sue is most grateful for her own recovery – “without which [she] would not have anything else]. She also loves being a Mom of three grown, handsome, and well accomplished men who now have families of their own… as well as her new fur-baby Deuce. She also loves to be outdoors, especially on the water, where she finds solitude and peace.

Sue’s Message of Hope: New Directions for Women will provide a peaceful. serene campus like setting to help you begin the journey of your lifetime. Our caring, compassionate and knowledgeable staff will welcome you with open arms, offer a shoulder to cry on, provide a safe place to heal, speak honestly when you may sometimes not want to hear it – all while also being your biggest cheerleader along the way.
