To the Editor:
The Acadia Family Center Board of Directors expresses its appreciation to Daniel Johnson, Ph.D. for his exceptional service to the Acadia Family Center (AFC) and the entire Mount Desert Island community.
Since February 2014, Dan has led our organization as Executive Director in becoming a treatment sanctuary for the MDI community. The board remains extremely grateful to him for his important role in building a substantial and well-regarded organization over his almost five years of tenure.
Dan brought a distinguished professional background and experience to this position, working for over 20 years at the Acadia Hospital in Bangor, and for nine years before that in the MDI school system as a teacher and counselor.
His leadership in and dedication to the treatment of substance use and mental health disorders have inspired us all and will continue to do so.
We wish him much happiness and enjoyment in his retirement.
Samuel Hamill, Jr.
on behalf of the
AFC Board of Directors
