Kevin Keoghan is a lifelong Rhode Islander, born and raised in Warwick. Kevin attended the University of Rhode Island where he obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. After spending time in the business world and finding recovery himself, Kevin made a career change into the field of addiction recovery in order to help others. Kevin became a Certified Peer Recovery Specialist with Anchor Recovery Community Center where he worked at the center as a recovery coach, on the mobile outreach team in the community, as well as being a responder to Providence’s Safe Stations program. Kevin then worked with the Rhode Island HOPE Initiative where he would assist law enforcement in attempts to outreach those affected by a recent overdose event and provide help and access to services. Kevin then worked for a national behavioral health group as a Treatment Representative; drawing on his recovery background and knowledge of current services available to Rhode Islanders, he marketed other treatment options to those people seeking inpatient services.
As a person in long-term recovery, Kevin’s mission has been to help Rhode Islander’s access recovery. To Kevin, this includes the appropriate treatment for substance use disorders, mental health and wellness needs, and any accompanying social services necessary. In his free time, Kevin enjoys sports, fitness and weightlifting, spending time with his fiancé and son.
