Your Guides to Recovery
Addiction Treatment Staff
We pride ourselves on having staff members that all share the same goal no matter which department they work in: helping people find freedom from addiction. Whether clinical or administrative, every team member takes this mission seriously. Some of them even had the first-hand experience of going through Country Road’s treatment program before returning to act as a guide to those ready to walk the road of recovery. You can trust our team to help you find your path to a better future.

Monica McAfee (Mo) is the chef at Country Road Recovery Center. Twenty-two years ago, she began her work in the mental health field at Oklahoma Youth Center (now CRC) in Norman, OK. After several years there, she followed her passion in caring for those of all ages dealing with mental health issues of all types and severities within several inpatient facilities all over Oklahoma. In her downtime from direct patient care, Mo nurtured her hobby of cooking. She took the knowledge her grandmother passed down to her and combined it with her own flare. Her passion for others and talent in the kitchen slowly morphed together and led her to join the Country Road Recovery team.
Mo has a heart for those that come to the facility to seek help and aims to make their stay as comfortable as possible. She caters to the clients' needs and wants by taking meal suggestions, understanding everyone's favorites/dislikes, making birthday's specials, and interacting with each person to spread her positive energy. Her attitude, kindness, and deep love for our clients and staff are displayed daily in her delicious home cooked meals each day.
Cathy is passionate about working in addiction as multiple of her family members struggled with addiction issues, one of which was able to find recovery through Country Road’s program. Prior to being Country Road’s care coordinator, she worked in pediatric and adult inpatient mental health for 13 years as a tech, and later transitioned to staffing and assistant to the director of nursing and nurse managers. Cathy works a 12-step program for family members of alcoholics herself and believes it is just as important for the loved ones of those struggling with addiction to be mentally and emotionally healthy as it is for their loved ones seeking recovery. It’s her goal to make sure both the client and their family are feeling safe and secure during their admissions process and upon their arrival. When family drops their loved one off, she answers any questions they have to help them feel at ease before leaving their loved one in our hands. She was in their position once and understands how difficult and scary it may be to trust strangers with your loved one, but she ensures them that their loved one will be safe and cared for while here with us.
