Wade Miller – Unsung Hero

Wade Miller - Unsung Hero

Wade Miller is Turnbridge’s Unsung Hero for the month of September.  Wade has been serving with Turnbridge for over 18 months as an invaluable member of the Support Staff team.  As a Turnbridge drug rehab graduate with over 2.5 years of recovery, Wade is uniquely qualified to use his personal experience to aid in his overall mission of helping current TP clients realize their potential. As a senior member of Support Staff, Wade is responsible for ensuring the overall safety of the Phase II environment.  Some of his duties include providing transportation, planning activities, and ensuring medication compliance.  Wade consistently goes above and beyond the call of duty, and can often be found chatting one-on-one with a client who is in need of additional guidance and support. According to Wade, the most rewarding part of his role as a Turnbridge staff member is helping clients to understand the value of honesty and vulnerability.  “My favorite part about my job is when I get to have a conversation that really opens someone up,” Wade said. “Those are the days I leave work really feeling good, like I’m really making a difference.”
