For the past 28 years, Jeff Turiczek has dedicated his career to the behavioral healthcare industry, working his way up from a mental health technician to key leadership roles in several hospitals and treatment facilities. Prior to joining the American Addiction Centers family in 2015, Turiczek served on the executive board of the Florida Juvenile Justice Association, helping shape behavioral healthcare laws in the state for juveniles in the criminal system. He also assisted in crafting critical administrative rules aimed at protecting children with behavioral healthcare issues. Turiczek is also a member of the American College of Healthcare Executives.

Struggling with the same addiction issues that plagued his family when he was young, Turiczek realized his passion for behavioral healthcare early on in his life and, as a result, pursued a career in addiction treatment. Since then, he’s worked to break the stigma of addiction in his professional endeavors through sharing his personal experience and educating others about the disease of addiction.

As the CEO of River Oaks Treatment Center, Turiczek oversees the facility’s operations and staff, ensuring each patient is provided compassionate, high-quality care. When he’s not working to transform lives, Turiczek enjoys spending quality time with his family, including his daughter who is in college, and his son, who is currently in high school.
