Ami Mitteldorf
Executive Director
At the age of 19 I entered the world of helping young adults get into drug & alcohol rehab centers. Ever since, this has been a growing passion of mine. In my position at Surfpoint Recovery, I am fortunate to help in providing care to facilitate long lasting recoveries.

There is nothing better and more rewarding, than seeing firsthand a client enter our facility, and then seeing their transformation when they have completed our program and is ready to walk out.

Our team is loving, compassionate and really cares about every client walking in our door. I am proud to be a part of such an amazing team!
