“The time spent at Sierra Tucson was the true beginning of my journey. Not only did I overcome my addictions, but I began to focus on the root causes that created my compulsions. I understand myself so much better now.”
For all Sierra Tucson Alumni to join together to encourage survival and growth on their healing journey.
Connecting a World of Miracles®
Tim McLeod, NCRC-II Director of Alumni Relations & Connect365

His personal mission statement: encourage the struggling; celebrate the miracles, and always bring the love.

Robert Lachapelle, NCRC-II Alumni Coordinator & Lead Connect365 Coach
Robert Lachapelle joined the Sierra Tucson team in the summer of 2011 as a Clinical Tech. After several interventions pertaining to his drug and alcohol abuse, he reluctantly admitted into treatment at Sierra Tucson in July 2009. Sierra Tucson not only saved his life, it provided him a life! He quickly learned that miracles were acting upon him and it was then that he knew that he had to be a part of the miracles for those that sought treatment at Sierra Tucson. In October 2015, Robert joined the Connect365 team as a Recovery Coach and was named Lead Recovery Coach in April 2018. Robert has joined the Alumni Relations team in April 2019 and is excited to continue encouraging and supporting the Sierra Tucson Alumni along the West Coast and International Region. He understands the courage that it takes to seek treatment, the hard work involved, the importance of ongoing support, and that it is okay to lean on others.
