Ian Henyon, MS, LPC
Executive Clinical Director
Ian has been involved with the treatment of addiction and co-occurring mental illness since 2008, when he began his career at Prescott House, an extended-care center for men. As a Primary Therapist, he was involved in the treatment of addictions involving substances, sex and love, compulsive gambling, and gaming/internet. Ian has also worked at a Ridgeview Institute’s Young Adult program where he treated males and females struggling with psychiatric illness and addiction as well as Fresh Start Recovery, a program dedicated to treating opioid addiction. Prior to coming to DecisionPoint, Ian was a founding staff-member of ALANA Recovery where he was initially responsible for group and individual therapy but eventually transitioned to a leadership role at the organization. Under his leadership, ALANA grew from 8 men in IOP to over 80 males and females in multiple levels of care across three locations.
Ian combines his understanding of addiction with experience treating psychiatric illness such as mood, anxiety, and personality disorders, conditions resulting from trauma and abuse, as well as eating disorders and codependency. He approaches working with clients from a foundation of psychodynamic theory, attachment, and neurobiology with the belief that all people are capable of healing and thriving in their lives. Ian obtained a Master’s of Science degree in Clinical Mental Health and Addiction Counseling from Prescott College.
