Jonathan Moseley is the Vice President of Digital Media for TruHealing Centers. Born, raised, and still living in South Florida, Jonathan began using drugs when he was 13 years old. For the next eight years, he had a difficult time putting them down.
“It got really bad pretty quickly,” Jonathan said. “I managed to stay in school and keep everything looking good on the outside; but by the time I turned 21, my connection with family and friends was gone. I lost everything. I was living in a Buick in downtown Miami.”
Jonathan managed to make a living between the ages of 18 and 21 while he was still using. But during the last six months of his use, he could barely function. He was only capable of getting high and searching for the next high.
During his teenage years, he attended several juvenile drug treatment programs, but didn’t stay sober for any significant length of time. When he finally had enough at age 21, he entered a detox program. There, he was introduced to EDMR and Trauma-Informed therapies, as well as the fellowship of a 12-step program.
“Early sobriety was about learning how to live,” Jonathan said. “I went to a halfway house with what small possessions I had and focused on staying clean. I wasn’t part of the cool-guy crowd, but I developed relationships with men who were sober and older than me. I learned a lot of life skills.”
These skills included learning to cook and do laundry, the sort of things that people without a Substance Use Disorder take for granted.
Now clean for 12-plus years, Jonathan has worked in the substance use treatment field for the past 11. He started out in a facility’s admissions department and became the Executive Director of Admissions in a different facility. In 2012, he founded Serenity House Detox Center, where he was part-owner and Chief Operations Officer.
“In Florida there weren’t too many options for the type of treatment my partners and I thought needed to be provided,” he said. “I had years of experience working with other detoxes, and that was the motivating aspect. Our goal with Serenity House was to provide strong clinical care, and strong customer service skills with families and partners.
During Jonathan’s tenure as CEO of Serenity House, the detox expanded from its first location in Broward County to West Palm Beach in 2013–and then again to Houston, Texas in 2015.
When TruHealing Centers acquired Serenity House Detox in 2020, Moesley stayed on board. He now oversees TruHealing Centers’ Business Intelligence team, both contact centers, and all of ARC’s online marketing. Although he does not have much face-to-face interaction with clients, Jonathan likes to stay connected to those in the Florida contact center. It reminds him why he does what he does.
“I look at data most of the day, but I enjoy being in the call center, because we’re talking to people at their bottom,” he said. “We can give them solutions like getting into a program quickly.
My office is not separate from the call center, but all of that is for one purpose, and that is to get individuals into treatment. When I hear people seeking help, it reminds me why I look at data.”
Jonathan says one of the most rewarding parts of his job is working with two Serenity House Detox alumni; with years clean, they are now employed as part of the Florida contact center. Their presence is a testament to the kind of work that Serenity House and all of the TruHealing Centers provide for their clients.
Jonathan believes that adding Serenity House Detox to the roster of TruHealing Centers across the country is a natural fit. The centers all stand out for providing exceptional treatment, no matter what your financial situation might be.
“We’re extremely dynamic, treating many different individuals, not just out-of-network, in-network, or Medicaid,” he said. “Our facilities give the same level of care no matter what bucket you come from.”
