I feel like I can really be a part of helping people learn more about Right Step’s multifaceted substance abuse and dual diagnosis treatment centers and get the treatment they need to lead satisfying lives in recovery.

Right Step, a network of substance abuse treatment centers in Texas, is proud to welcome Jeffrey Turiczek as executive director of its Dallas/Fort Worth drug rehabilitation program, and Brandi Ernst as Vice President of Business Development.

In his new position as Executive Director at Right Step Dallas/Fort Worth, Jeff Turiczek is responsible for administrative direction and oversight, ensuring that Right Step meets the highest standards of care.

Turiczek’s career in behavioral health care has included being the CEO of several psychiatric hospitals as well as the administrator overseeing large systems of care with multiple facilities. In his last position he was the director of operations for an organization with 23 facilities in Florida. Turiczek obtained his Bachelor of Arts in psychology from Ohio University and his master’s degree in organizational management from the University of Phoenix, Maitland Campus.

“I’m extremely pleased to be at Right Step DFW,” Turiczek said. “From a technical perspective, I am a systems and data driven leader. I want to do more than believe we provide great care; I want to be able to demonstrate it. That persistence for excellence is something that I believe separates us from others in the field. And I am grateful to have been given the opportunity to join a treatment center that shares those values.”

Brandi Ernst received her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Texas in Austin, majoring in advertising and public relations. She began her career in the pharmaceutical industry, working for Johnson & Johnson for 10 years. She later marketed adolescent programs nationally and young adult and adult addiction recovery and eating disorder programs in the Texas market. Most recently, Ernst was regional director of business development for a national nonprofit organization focusing on drug abuse.

“I’m excited about coming to Right Step,” Ernst said. “I feel like I can really be a part of helping people learn more about Right Step’s multifaceted substance abuse and dual diagnosis treatment centers and get the treatment they need to lead satisfying lives in recovery.”
