Cecilia Plavnick

LMHC, CAP – Co-Founder / Chief Clinical Officer

Two words describe Cecilia: dedicated and passionate, especially when it comes to her work in the field of addiction treatment. Cecilia has extensive experience and knowledge, which she brings to her role as CCO at MAT. She has dedicated more than ten years to establishing successful substance abuse programs and managing top-notch clinical teams and is regarded as a natural leader and role model by her staff, peers and patients. What sets Cecilia apart from the rest is both her ability to create an environment that is optimal for successful clinical interventions as well as her ability to inspire trust, dedication and continual growth among her team. Cecilia’s approach is unique because she isn’t afraid to jump in directly at all levels of care–from the admission process the discharge procedure–because she is a firm believer that good clinical care is an ongoing process that requires daily tweaking and maintenance. Cecilia is dedicated to her profession and to the individuals with whom she works and serves. She is always open to feedback and suggestions from staff as well as patients in order to continue growing, expanding and improving services. Cecilia believes that a patient-centered approach in which an individual’s needs are constantly being met is essential to his or her success.

William Nevadomski

Co-Founder / Director of Business Development

After a long battle with addiction to opiates and prescription drugs during his teenage years and early 20s, William went through state-funded treatment programs. After two episodes of treatment, he started living a clean life in February 2014, helped by the NA community and his desire and willingness to follow a program and change his life.

William began working in the treatment field as a house manager for a sober living home. This allowed him to start to fulfill what he sees as his destiny, helping others in any way he could through their struggles that he went through himself and overcame. His journey continued, and through his compassion, ethical standards and care for the needy, he evolved in the field and earned the opportunity to grow through a position in the admissions department at White Sands Treatment Center. He maintained this position for over a year.

Another opportunity came his way when Delphi Health Group offered him a position in the admissions department, which he took and evolved in for over a year, after which he joined the team at MAT’s sister-facility Recovery In Tune in Florida. After working in the admissions department for Recovery In Tune for over a year, William transitioned to the Harmony Recovery Group team as Director of Business Development and Co-Founded Midwood Addiction Treatment. William has become a vital part of the program, using his personal and professional experience and knowledge to help and guide those in the program and educate the community about the program.

After one year, Jarret discovered his innate ability to harness an individual’s willingness to better themselves and stepped into the role of Director of Community Outreach. Jarret has become one of the many token faces that are associated with the Harmony Recovery Group facilities, and his relationships with the members of the community have flourished as a result. Jarret transitioned to the Harmony Recovery Group team as Regional Director of Community Outreach and Co-Founded Midwood Addiction Treatment in 2017.
