Katie Johnston, CADC – Primary Therapist

Primary Therapist

🧑 In Person, 📹 Telehealth


Growing up in South Jersey, she was surrounded by a loving family who provided her with a great education and significant morals. During her late teens, Katie slowly fell into her personal struggles with substance abuse. Entering her first treatment center at nineteen years old, she was determined to discover who she really was. But it took time.

At twenty-three, Katie finally surrendered to her battle with substance abuse. She is now committed to her recovery, shares her journey within others, and lives her life with purpose and integrity.

As a young girl, Katie dreamed that one day she would find her purpose to help change the world; she started that journey as a Chemical Dependency Technician at a local detox.

She next began her quest for her CADC license to become a Substance Abuse Counselor and recently came on board at Victory Bay as a CADC Intern. She is dedicated, driven, and feels truly blessed to help others struggling with addiction to find their purpose in the world.

Katie is a firm believer in life after trauma, loss, relapse, and overall addiction. Katie assists her clients to rewrite their futures, while encouraging her clients to become narrators of their lives.
