Maddison Fillmore

LCSW

IOP Clinical Director

Maddison feels that the devestation she has seen as a result of loved ones struggling with addiction pales in comparison to the love, connection, and peace that is a result of a recovery filled life. “I realized my path was walking others through their pain and suffering because I know recovery is possible for everyone, we are ALL capable of healing” After pursuing her Masters Degree, Maddison sought out a position where she could cultivate a family atmosphere with dedication to the success of each individual.
