Chief Executive Officer

Becky Lee Maddox, MPA

Rebecca (Becky) Maddox has served individuals and families in the substance use field for almost 28 years. She entered the system as an adolescent counselor at Behavioral Health Services of Pickens County and later worked with adults who were referred by the criminal justice system. She has been with the Phoenix Center for almost 16 years as the Deputy Director before accepting the Executive Director position in March 2018.

Becky is a passionate advocate for individuals and families who struggle with a substance use disorder. This stems from her family’s heartbreak and loss, especially the death of her dad over 30 years ago. Becky’s message is one of hope that no matter how long or short the recovery, every day and every person in recovery matters.

Becky leads through service and love every day. Her professional accomplishments include expansion of services for adolescents through the residential program at White Horse Academy, expansion of services to women and children at Serenity Village, and expansion of opioid treatment services through successful completion of the Certificate of Need process.

Becky is a graduate of Gardner-Webb University and earned a Master in Public Administration from Clemson University.

Her personal accomplishments include a happy marriage with 2 wonderful children who understand the importance of service to their community.

Trauma Informed Care (TIC) is an approach that realizes the widespread impact of trauma, and aims at ensuring environments and services are welcoming and engaging for clients and staff. By recognizing the signs and symptoms of trauma in clients, families, staff, and others involved with the system, it responds by fully integrating knowledge about trauma into policies, procedures, and practices and seeks to actively resist re-traumatization.

We do this by following five core values to help us provide the highest quality of care.

SAFETY:

Ensuring physical and emotional safety. Common areas are welcoming and privacy is respected.

TRUSTWORTHINESS:

Maximizing trustworthiness through task clarity, consistency, and interpersonal boundaries.

CHOICE:

Maximizing consumer choice and control. Individuals are provided a significant role in planning and evaluating services.

COLLABORATION:

Maximizing collaboration and sharing power. Respectful and professional boundaries are maintained.

EMPOWERMENT:

Prioritizing consumer empowerment and skill building. Provide an atmosphere that allows individuals to feel validated and affirmed with each and every contact at the agency.

The Phoenix Center is united in our diversity and we welcome every individual. With us you are seen, you are heard, and you are valued. (DEI Est. 2021)

DEI CORE VALUES

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT:

We acknowledge that inequities exist in our community in regard to race, sex, gender, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, political affiliation, and other personal characteristics.

COMMITMENT:

We commit to taking respectful action when we see these inequities by making the individual aware of the inequity and inviting him/her to join us for change.

OPENNESS:

We listen intently to the views of others without judgment.

CELEBRATION:

We approach others with a genuine desire to learn about cultural views other than our own so that we may expand our understanding.

HUMILITY:

We ask others to tell us about their culture and personal characteristics rather than making assumptions based on generalizations or things we have heard about that culture from others.
