We are pleased to announce that Dr. Christopher Swart has joined the Revive of the USA Board of Directors. In this new post, Dr. Swart will work with the Executive Team and the Board of Directors to expand existing programs and establish new initiatives to advance our clinical and longitudinal studies.
“Dr. Swart is a childhood friend of mine. He was also my quarterback, as I was his running back, from youth football all the way up until high school. When I saw that smile in the huddle, I knew what time it was. Throughout my career there was no other quarterback that inspired me more. Very honored to be able to reconnect! Working together again 15 years later, will give us a chance to leverage each other’s strengths to rescue more people from the grips of addiction and that is the next big play call. I see that smile, so I know it’s “Go” time!” -Anthony Bizzotto
