Tina K. Hughes B.S,, LAADC-CA
Chief Executive Officer



Tina is highly recognized among her colleagues in the field of treatment for substance use disorders, a field she has worked in since 1995.  She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Services Management from Phoenix University; and a Licensed Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor LAADC credential from California Consortium of Addiction Programs and Professionals (CCAPP).  She was recently selected as a Surveyor for CARF, the Commission for Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities – a quest she will begin in March 2017.  Tina is very active in the community.  She is a member of CCAPP; San Bernardino County’s Association of Community Based Organizations (ACBO); and the Upland-Foothill Kiwanis service organization.  She began her tenure at IVRS in administration as executive assistant back in March 2006.  She quickly proved herself and was promoted into program management.  She has supervised both residential and outpatient programs, including New House, Inc. during IVRS’ attempted merger back in 2011.  Tina is a go-to gal.  In addition to her program management duties she also served as quality assurance coordinator and liaison to IVRS’ IT contractor – coordinating all aspects of technology installs and repairs.  She also served as Director of Operations before finally being promoted to Chief Executive Officer.  As a result of many years of hands-on experience, Tina is a seasoned professional. She is a profound leader, with a vast array of positive qualities and character, which are integral components for maintaining a high level of client care for individuals suffering from substance use disorders.  On a personal note she is married to her best friend, and loves her family and her grandchildren.

Crystal Horn, CAS
Admissions Coordinator
In 2004 Crystal began her formal education in the field of alcohol and drug counseling to pursue her dream of working in the helping professions. She is certified through both the California Association of Addiction Recovery Resources (as a Certified Addiction Specialist) and Breining Institute (as a Registered Addiction Specialist). She is also formally trained in youth Prevention and Early Intervention (PEI). In 2006 she got her start in the field in a social model residential home with women. She then pushed her boundaries and began working with the criminal justice population (state parolees). She came to IVRS in 2010, as a counselor at the residential campus. She is flexible, highly skilled and willing to do whatever is asked of her. As a result she has been placed in just about every position and program IVRS has. She currently serves as the admissions coordinator. Be it working with adults or juveniles, she is well rounded and versatile, which made her the perfect candidate for the position. Crystal has taken her new role to the next level. When asked why do you love IVRS? Crystal responds with, “That’s simple – because IVRS helps others by showing them that the honest way is always the right way".
