The leader of a Danbury-based outpatient clinic has been selected to join the boards of two new foundations. Joe Sullivan, the head of Midwestern Connecticut Council of Alcoholism has been chosen to serve on the board of the Hartford-based Behavioral Health Partnership Oversight Council. That group advises the Departments of Children and Families and Mental Health and Addiction Services, and Social Services on the planning and implementation of the statutory Behavioral Health Partnership.
Sullivan will also serve on the Danbury-based Good Samaritan Mission. The new group was formed by the Jericho Partnership and Christian Community Outreach Ministries to serve the homeless.
Sullivan became CEO of MCCA in 1980 and helped grow the organization from an outpatient facility in Danbury to the current seven outpatient clinics and three residential treatment centers in Western Connecticut. Sullivan has been a leader in the substance abuse and behavioral health field in Connecticut for almost 40 years.
