Our Team

Ronald Honn, MS, CATC III

Program Administrator

Hello, My name is Ron and I am an addict, in recovery! I am a Southern California native who can personally say the disease of addiction has had a dramatic impact on my life and the lives of those close to me. Fortunately, I was rescued from the depths of my disease and given an opportunity to be a part of something that would dramatically change me in ways I never knew possible. As a result of my own struggles I felt a personal obligation to become a part of the solution rather than maintaining consistency as part of the problem. In conjunction with my personal journey of recovery I returned to school in an effort to be the most efficient and effective instrument of change I could be.  As a result I currently hold a MS in Psychology, am certified as a CATC III, and am a newly appointed adjunct professor at San Bernardino Valley College . I have a passion for working with addicts and alcoholics and absolutely love what I do.

I guide clients to see their best selves and have the skills to maintain their core values in all aspect of their lives. As a co-founder of New Origins my personal dream and goal was to provide a different environment for treatment; treating with respect and compassion, individualized to need, and promoting healthy balanced living.

Gary Hitchcock, CADC

Counseling Staff

Hello my name is Gary Hitchcock and I am part of New Origins counseling support staff. The calibration of heart to head ratio is my life’s driving passion and to be able to share this good news with others has become my life’s driving force. I have life experiences ranging from a tortured soul that was consumed by the bondage of addiction with ruination my outcome, to a man that has reclaimed a vigorous life through 12 step philosophy and spirituality. At New Origins I understand the tormented state of being and my commitment is to alleviate this mode of survival by administering life skills that empower individuals to overcome the fear based obstacles of combating addiction and attain freedom. I implement care, love, experience, strength and hope for the individual’s life that gives rise to reclaim a new way of life. My purpose here is to guide those who at no time in their lives understood peace, serenity, a true sense of self, or have lost their way, in helping them find a new way to live. True healing comes when two hearts care and share beating as one.

Daniel Williams, CATC i

Counseling Staff

Hello my name is Daniel Williams, I am a primary counselor at New Origins I would like to let you know that for many years of my life I ran the gauntlet that is active addiction. This disease took me and my loved one’s places I never thought possible, places I never thought I would go and never want to return. Addiction is an evil that effects every part of the addict’s life as well as those they love. I have an intimate knowledge of the 12 steps and a working knowledge of the curriculum offered at the facility, and these processes made it possible for me to change from a man with no hope to a productive member of society. I have been working in this field for over 4 years and I am over 8 years clean and sober. I have worked at other facilities and I have never known of a treatment center that is as focused on client success and wellness as New Origins. It is my honor and pleasure to be at such a well run facility. Working with our clients is my passion in life today as I witness people experience a change from hopelessness to a life many could never have imagined.

Richard Romero, CADC II

Counseling Staff

Hello, my name is Richard. I am an addict in recovery. I was stuck in active addiction for over 15 years. All I knew since adolescence was addiction and the lifestyle surrounding addiction. It seemed all I had to look forward to was jails, institutions, and death. Through the grace of God I was brought to recovery and was taught a new way to live. Since then, I have dedicated my life to help those suffering from the disease of addiction. I have worked in the field of drug and alcohol counseling for over 5 years and I am grateful for the miracles that have taken place in my life. I strive to be a better professional and better person in recovery.

Matthew Huskey, RADT I

Counseling Intern

Hi my name is Matthew Huskey. I am a drug addict. I have struggled with the disease of addiction for the last 17 years. My addiction took precedence over every area of my life. It took everything from me and had an effect on those around me as well. I was left feeling defeated, ashamed, and hopeless. I didn't care if I died. I had given up. Today I am glad to be able to say that has changed. At New Origins I learned invaluable life skills. Healthy ways to cope with what life throws at me. How to be a responsible and productive person. I have not only gained knowledge of the 12 Steps of Narcotics Anonymous, but seen the importance of incorporating them in my life. The life I live today is full of optimism and gratitude. Today I have a desire to help others. To help other addicts to realize there is a better way to live. To let them know that we can and do recover.

Alfredo Lopez, RADT I

Counseling Intern

My name is Alfredo Lopez, and I myself am a grateful recovering addict. After having spent many years lost in a hole of darkness and insanity, detached from society, I was given a second chance in life. This new way of life is truly a miracle from God through the most loving and caring people of New Origins. My personal transformation being proof, has inspired me to make the same happen to others suffering with the disease of addiction. I have taken the necessary steps to start my career as a Drug and Alcohol Counselor and will delightfully continue my journey with New Origins. Utilizing my skills and knowledge I will provide the care and support for our patients as well as the life skills necessary to cope with a new way of life.

John Bauer

Peer Support


My name is John Bauer and I am an addict in recovery. I spent years in the depths of addiction, imprisoned in my own mind, trying to fight my way out of it, and could never find a solution. It affected my life tremendously and the people around me as well. Until I chose to surrender and change my life. Now I have a completely different outlook on life. I reached out and asked for help and I learned how to live in the solution not the problem. My passion in life is to now reach my hand out and help others who are suffering just as I was, and show them it is possible to recover and they don't have to suffer anymore. I am an optimistic, grateful, responsible, and productive member of society today. Working with New Origins is a blessing. Nothing in life makes me happier then getting to work with whole hearted people who want to change lives, and being a part of their team, that helps them achieve those goals. The heart of every co-worker is in the right place and it shows everyday. I am honored to be apart of the team at New Origins and to help guide the clients into finding a better way to live.

Luke Landri

Peer support

Hi my Name is Luke John Landri, I was a struggling addict who lost his drive, goals, spirituality, passion, and love for life . I never fathomed that I needed help or had a problem, only need help getting more of my drug of choice . Thankfully, I finally accepted I needed help, after beating my head against the impenetrable wall of addiction. Being an athlete my whole life I was not one to admit defeat, or give up. I have since discovered, surrendering is neither. I am now a surrender accepting, driven, goal oriented, spiritual, passionate, willing, loving, grateful, and productive member of my community. I know I would not be where I am today without the care, love, respect, empathy, treatment, and guidance that I have be given at New Origins. Words can not describe how grateful I am to be a part of New Origins.  I hope to be a beacon and give back what has so freely be given to me, to struggling addicts.

Lorraine Bernal

Hello my name is Lorraine Amelia Bernal and I am grateful for my life today. Drugs had such a strong hold on me for seven years. I felt lost and had no hope for myself. I struggled with the desire to get clean. I finally surrendered my will. Today, I am a grateful recovering addict. I believe in myself today. I love my new life today and I love being a part of an awesome team at New Origins. The people here are filled with passion to truly reach out and help other addicts from their heart.

Kaitlyn Bentley, IMF

Therapist

As a clinician, I love working alongside clients as they discover their inner reserves of courage while learning to go through emotional pain, rather than around it. I take a highly strengths-based, compassionate approach while incorporating practical skills to aid in recovery. I also incorporate values-oriented techniques into treatment, encouraging clients to explore the qualities that make them unique human beings. I have experience working with substance use and co-occurring disorders, and am truly honored to serve the clients here at New Origins.
