Ram Recovery Leadership Team

Leah Winningham
Ram Recovery President

My sober date is 6/9/2018. Since I've been sober, I have been very active in the northern colorado recovery community. I’ve chaired women's AA meetings, extensively volunteered with Oxford House sober living, and was the president of Sobriety and Habits at Front Range Community College. I'm currently studying social work with a concentration in addiction counseling and plan on becoming a Certified addiction counselor. In my free time, I like to roller skate and spend time at home with my pets. | 720.987.0419

Welcome Rams 🐏  

You’ve come to the right place to engage in support for what you are going through, and with us, you are never alone. Your recovery is a courageous journey to embark on. For me, it took the repercussions of suppressing and numbing of emotions, abusing substances, and hurting the ones I loved most for me to realize how I needed to turn my life around. I have been involved in a variety of programs for over 6 years now and my experience has led to my passion to help those who struggle with their mental health & addictive behavior. I work at an Addictions and Mental Health facility & I am studying Mind, Brain, & Behavior Psychology. I enjoy hiking mountains, writing poetry, and traveling! | 719.465.6779

Peer mentorship is a significant component of the Ram Recovery Community. This type of support provides a way of connecting with peers who share lived experiences in recovery and demonstrate that recovery is possible. Peer mentors are different from professional staff in that they share personal stories, build friendship and, together, build a social support community that is essential to the recovery process.
