Meet Our Founder

Sonja A. Scott , our founder and CEO, experienced various struggles. After graduating from Kennedy King College with the highest honors, she  received a AAS degree in Addiction studies/mental Health. Her late Professor Ross encouraged her to always be greater than your own expectations.

Sonja continued her education at the National Louis University  by graduating with her bachelor’s degree in behavioral health and later with a master’s degree in Psychology. Since then, she has begun to believe that all things were possible. Sonja then transferred to the Adler University School of Psychology where she received a master’s degree in industrial and organizational psychology.

Sonja began to see how many families, children, youth , and adults have been affected by substance abuse and mental health disorders. She then opened S.A.C. DUI COUNSELING CENTER LLC, to provide affordable services so no individual should ever be turned away due to high cost and insurance restrictions. 

“Anyone can have a vision, but the vision is nothing without the footwork behind it.”
