Crystal S. Reid, BSN RN, Director of Nursing
I am flexible, caring, loving, and dedicated to serving others. I spent 7 years as a medical assistant and decided to pursue nursing to further my healthcare career. I am experienced in Trauma, Ortho, and Mental Health. Mental Health has become my passion and as a leader in substance abuse, I am learning how to master both. My skills include interpersonal communication, the ability to de-escalate challenging situations, time management, problem-solving, teamwork, and providing an excellent customer service experience. I am passionate about the care/service I provide to clients and patients and my faith keeps me steadfast.
I obtained my nursing from Western Governor’s University and will soon have my master’s in leadership and business administration in nursing. I am married with 4 children and my hobbies outside of serving others include shopping online, watching my children play sports, spending time with my husband, and reading. As the DON of Hickory Treatment Center, I know the knowledge and skill I bring to HTC, as stated above and I’m excited to continue my growth with HTC, becoming a part of its history and greatness.

Is Treatment The Next Step For You
Determining if drug and alcohol rehab is the right choice can be challenging. Treatment is essential for anyone who finds that substance use is negatively impacting their health, relationships, work, or daily activities. It’s particularly crucial for those who have made repeated attempts to reduce or stop their use unsuccessfully, or who experience withdrawal symptoms when not using. If substance dependence is causing distress and hindering your quality of life, seeking professional help can be a transformative step. Remember, it’s not about how much you use, but how it affects your life.
