Madeline Desrosiers is the Recovery Center Program Coordinator at Prevention Links. Madeline has been with Prevention Links since 2018, and has been working in the recovery field for over three years. She began her recovery journey when she was only seventeen-years-old after losing her mother to substance use and uses that experience every day in her work. She knows firsthand how valuable it is to have a community of peers to support individuals on their recovery journeys and the profound impact that community involvement has on the lives of the people she serves. Madeline is a Rutgers University graduate with a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a minor in women and gender studies. She is not only passionate about recovery, but about social equity and firmly believes that holistic wellness is a human right for all. She is a Certified Peer Recovery Specialist and strives to make recovery spaces more inclusive through supporting multiple pathways to recovery. In her free time, Madeline enjoys any creative endeavor from graphic design to cooking, in addition to playing with her cat, Pluto. She also practices Vedic astrology and enjoys talking about her spiritual practice with those it may help. Ultimately, Madeline’s number one priority is to help people find a sense of belonging, purpose, and meaning in their own lives.
