Barbara Dugan, MLADC, SAP, MDiv – Therapist
Barb provides our residents with weekly one-on-one counseling and process group right on site at Malley Farm. We are blessed to have her calm, healing professional services.
Barbara Dugan has been a substance abuse clinician since 1991. She received a master's degree from Yale University in 1988, received clinical training at Yale-New Haven Hospital, and later began a career as a substance abuse clinician at the Yale Psychiatric Institute and as a research associate for the department of psychiatry at Yale Medical School in the area of addiction prevention and treatment.
As a research associate at Yale Medical School, Barbara worked on several projects, including the development of a medical detoxification protocol for opiate dependence. She has also worked collaboratively to develop models for outpatient and hospital-based intensive outpatient programs. She has a broad range of experience, working with adults, families, and adolescents at all levels of ASAM care.
Barbara is a strong advocate of body-centered therapies where traditional therapy modalities are paired with body-centered therapies that give rise to a sense of well-being, self-awareness, and calm. These therapies include, but are not limited to, EMDR, Deep Brain Re-orienting, infra-slow neurofeedback, meditation, breath work, and yoga.
