Paige Bottom joined Foundations Recovery Network as the Group CEO for The Oaks at La Paloma Treatment Center in Memphis, but she has been committed to the field of addiction and mental illness for more than 18 years, beginning with her work with adolescents diagnosed with both psychiatric and chemical dependency problems.
Bottom’s path began in direct clinical work in Virginia after completing her undergraduate work in psychology, but it soon branched into prevention and education as well through work as an Employee Assistance Professional for several Fortune 500 companies. Throughout this time, Bottom remained dedicated to making a difference in the lives of people who had been affected by addiction and mental illness. As a result, she returned to graduate school with a dual focus on Counseling Psychology and Business Administration.
It was during this time that Bottom moved out of direct care and into program development, operations and administration, Driven by a desire to have a greater impact on how care is delivered and to reach a larger portion of an underserved population, her ultimate goal was to provide services that result in a powerful, life-changing experience and greater rates of success.
After receiving her Master’s in Business Administration, Bottom worked extensively in Wilmington, NC and Santa Cruz, Calif., creating and nurturing programs to be more responsive, efficient and effective.
As The Oaks at La Paloma’s Group CEO, Bottom brings a gentle, compassionate strength to her commitment and continues to stand for excellence in clinical care and customer service.
