We learned that our beloved former Clinical Director & the author of AFY's 6-weeks iTHRIVE Program (Dr. Alexis) passed away in FL. The world has lost a great clinician & a champion of recovery. We are honored to have known him, and we will honor his legacy at AFY by creating a training institute named after Dr. Alexis.
