Schuyler Clayton, CPRS
Before coming to Vanderbilt to work, I was employed by a few different substance abuse treatment centers. The first was an intense 12 step Men’s Spiritual Retreat called Discovery Place located in Burns, TN in which I was a counselor at their extended care and main campus. After Discovery Place, I went to work for Cornerstone of Recovery in Knoxville, TN as a counselor for their Young Adult Substance Abuse Treatment Department. While at Cornerstone, I underwent LADAC training and supervision which is ongoing. What I found working in this field is a passion to help the hopeless. I have walked in the shoes of my patients and feel a deep obligation to pass on what my counselors gave to me. If I communicate anything to my patients, it is that change is possible no matter how lost you may feel.
