The board of directors of Sierra Recovery Center recently welcomed three active community members as new members of their board. One of the new members is actually a former executive director of the 31-year-old nonprofit agency.

She serves as a management consultant and advisor, has served on the South Lake Tahoe Board of Realtors and is a past president of Soroptimist International of South Lake Tahoe. She also is an adjunct faculty member at Lake Tahoe Community College.

Mike Fedor is a transplant from Oklahoma City, who moved to South Lake Tahoe in 1977. He has worked for both the former Sahara Tahoe and High Sierra casinos and at the Tahoe Daily Tribune before his current position with Tahoe Telephone Directories. His work involves being responsible for the yellow page advertising for more than 400 businesses.

Benjamin Sharit is a paramedic and has been a captain with the Tahoe Douglas Fire District since 1985. He has served as an emergency medical technician instructor at Lake Tahoe Community College since 1989.

Sierra Recovery Center offers the community a wide range of programs to help individuals and families deal with the problems of alcohol and drug abuse. Outpatient programs include alcohol and drug education, assessments and consultations, family groups and programs to aid in recovery. The center also operates an in-patient treatment facility for treatment of chemical dependency, where clients receive counseling, education and life skills training. A Transitional Living program also is available, which offers women and children a safe, supportive and monitored environment.
