Heath Patterson

Director of Operations

Heath is originally from Marietta, Ohio. With ten years of sobriety under his belt, he is an avid believer in “paying it forward” to others struggling with addiction. Subsequently, he found that working in the substance abuse treatment industry is both rewarding and enables him to help others that have been in his shoes. As Harmony Ridge Recovery Center’s Director of Operations, Heath is responsible for ensuring day-to-day operations run smoothly and efficiently. He has earned his bachelor’s degree in Psychology from West Virginia University at Parkersburg. The most rewarding part of his work is, “Seeing someone come in broken, alone and searching for the right path, then seeing the patient discharge happy, surrounded by loved ones and on the path to a better life.” His work life has taught him that, “Consistency and structure are the keys to a better life.” Heath recalls during Harmony’s Joint Commissions Accreditation Review, the facility lost power. Instead of panicking, he and his team came together, implemented emergency protocols and were able to secure the accreditation, despite Murphy’s Law’s attempt to derail their success. During his free time, Heath enjoys exercising, walking his dogs, spending time with his family and eating chicken.
