Helio Health is pleased to announce the promotion of Sabrina Howland to Vice President of the Finger Lakes Region, responsible for oversight of the growth and operations of Helio Health in the Finger Lakes region.
In her role, Howland will oversee operations of services in the Finger Lakes region, build relationships with existing providers, and support linkages of services. She will direct short, intermediate, and long-term strategic objectives in the region, and make recommendations regarding the organization’s programs.
Throughout the last seven years at Helio Health, Howland served as the service director and team leader of the Withdrawal and Stabilization and Inpatient Rehabilitation Program as well as the team leader of Pathway Houses of Helio Health. Throughout her career, Howland has worked in detoxification, inpatient rehabilitation, outpatient, and residential levels of care for substance use and mental health disorders.
Howland has been instrumental in increasing easy access and utilization of withdrawal and stabilization services, as well as building relationships with community partners across the region. During the COVID-19 pandemic, she assisted with the quick expansion of the inpatient rehabilitation program to allow for a safe transition of care for patients when other services were paused or closed.
Helio Health President and CEO Jeremy Klemanski said, “Sabrina has shown over her years of service her dedication to the mission and her willingness to lead with the best interests of her team and the people we serve in mind. She has worked both smart and hard to reach this point in her career and we are so excited for her and our organization.”
Howland received a bachelor’s degree in social work and health science from The College at Brockport, a master’s degree in social work from The Greater Rochester Collaborative Program, and is a licensed master social worker.
