Handing Over the Reins

After 18 years leading Arizona’s preeminent drug and alcohol rehabilitation organization, Crossroads Executive Director Lee Pioske is retiring. Chief Compliance Officer Chris Riley, will succeed his mentor of 16 years.

“Lee has depended on Chris in helping direct operations and setting strategy for continued growth in fulfilling our critical mission for the people of Arizona. Chris’s promotion ensures a smooth and seamless transition,” said Adam Miller, Chairman of the Crossroads board. “We accomplished so much during Lee’s tenure, and are confident we can broaden our reach and preserve our effectiveness with Chris continuing Lee’s work, staying true to the Crossroads mission of returning people battling addiction to productive living.”

Under Pioske, Crossroads expanded its capacity acquiring multiple buildings to meet the rapidly growing need for addiction resources. They offer essential services to 5,000 men and women annually across 9 Valley campuses that provide housing, healthy meals and counseling, fellowship, and support as addicts work on recovery and re-entry with a real opportunity for success.

“I have been driven by a desire to help others,” said Pioske, in describing his time and explaining how he’ll pass on that legacy to the next generation. “I want to make sure Crossroads will be the place where people can get well.”

Both Pioske and the Crossroads board believe Riley is the individual best suited to continue and develop the Crossroads heritage for years to come. https://thecrossroadsinc.org
