Gina Sitaras is responsible for maintaining connection with alumni after they depart from their inpatient treatment at Futures. She is ideally suited for the meaningful role of Alumni Support Specialist because caring and supporting come so naturally to her. Her ability to listen and relate to our alumni comes from a place of understanding having witnessed some of her own loved ones battle and overcome addiction to achieve long lasting sobriety. Her connections with clients often begin during treatment, when she introduces the self-empowering tools and techniques of SMART Recovery to promote adoption in aftercare. Gina is an integral component of the continuum care approach Futures has purposefully chosen and resourced.
When she’s not busy on the phone, Gina enjoys cheering on her alma mater University of Minnesota Golden Gophers, cooking from scratch (inspired by her Greek-born mother), reading, or spending time catching up with her family and two sons who call Philadelphia and Maine home.
"I will stay on the phone with everyone as little or as long as they need. "
