John Fleming, LISAC, IOP Director
John is the primary Intensive Outpatient Therapist. He received both Bachelor Master of Arts Degrees in Forensic Psychology in 1997 from The John Jay College of Criminal Justice, City University of New York with a Minor in Addiction Studies. His work with the chemically dependent began in 1985 at New York City’s Central Labor Council, AFL-CIO, and the New York State Supreme Court Officers Association. John then interned at the New York City Police Department’s Psychiatric Services Unit, Alcohol Counseling Unit, and mentored under the beloved Monsignor Joseph Dunne. These experiences helped shape his views of employment based treatment, and John became a founding member of the New York State Unified Court System’s Employee Assistance Program. As such, John has made valuable contributions to his brother and sister law enforcement officers in their recoveries from both substance abuse and mental illness.
John has worked at the Seafield Center, a residential treatment center in Westhampton Beach, N.Y, and Southside Hospital’s detox and mental health units in Bayshore, N.Y. John also interned at the Sagamore Children’s Psychiatric Center in Dix Hills, N.Y. Since retirement from law enforcement and moving to Arizona in 2000, John has worked in hospital based programs for both chemical dependency and mental health, children’s, adolescent, adult, and geriatric populations, at all levels of care. John was trained in Multi Systemic Therapy for children and adolescents, and applied that training to work with at risk minors and their families. He has worked with the chemically dependent since 1985.
