Joan E. Zweben, PhD, EBCRP’s Executive Director, is a clinical psychologist who has been involved in the addiction field for over 43 years and oversees the entire agency. Marta Rose, LMFT, is the Associate Executive Director and has overseen daily operations of the agency since its founding in 1989. It’s unusual to have both founders still involved almost 30 years later, but their combined experience and passion for the work informs the type of care EBCRP is able to offer.
Dr. Zweben has over thirty-five years’ experience in treating addiction, and training treatment practitioners. She has a broad based background in both alcoholism and drug dependence, and has experience with both residential and outpatient modalities. She has a long-standing commitment to building treatment resources through networking activities.
Dr. Zweben’s activities as an author, teacher, consultant and participant in NIDA’s Clinical Trials Network keep her informed of new developments in the field. She is the author of 3 books, over 55 articles or book chapters and editor of 15 monographs on treating addiction.
