Jeff Holland, LMSW
Sometimes referred to as EPC’s version of Siddhartha, Jeffrey has traveled a journey which has included seeking empty pleasures and paying the price for his choices, to searching for meaning and truth through education and service.
The fact that some of Jeffrey’s lessons have not been taught, but rather have come from his own struggles and experience, makes him an invaluable leader and mentor as EPC’s Program Director. “I am passionate about helping people and I love to see people succeed in life.
If there is a way that I can help facilitate that, then I am more than happy to do what I can. I love my family, my friends, my music and my dog. I love life. I believe I am exactly where I am supposed to be, here at the Endorphin Power Company.”
Jeffrey is a Masters level clinician. He started volunteering with North Americas 1st Syringe Exchange program in the 90’s and has been involved in the substance abuse field for 12+ years at various levels including harm reduction, detox, advocacy, case management and counseling.
Ricky first came to EPC in 2012 as a resident. He worked hard on living the Four Pillars, and noticed a dramatic change in his life. Upon completing the EPC program he moved to the University Area and pursued studies at CNM and UNM. He graduated with honors in 2015 with a double major in Psychology and Sociology. He is currently completing his MSW at New Mexico Highlands University.
He came back to EPC as the Office Manager in 2016 and states, “I am thrilled to be around people who are working so hard to improve their life circumstances and creating new behavioral patterns. I am a firm believer in the Four Pillars of exercise, education, community and service. I know the transformative power of EPC and truly believe the Four Pillars have been a blessing in my life.”
