Alex Brumbaugh worked in the addiction recovery field beginning in 1983. For ten years he was the Director of Project Recovery, the largest provider of drug and alcohol treatment services in Santa Barbara County. He was subsequently appointed Director of Project Development for the Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse in Santa Barbara, and more recently the Project Director of a Recovering Communities Support Grant from the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT).
His undergraduate education was in history and English, and his post-graduate studies included history, psychology, education, and addiction. He was formerly a teacher of American History and English in Monterey, California, and an Education Instructor for the University of California Extension in Santa Cruz. He was also an Associate Faculty Member in Human Services, Social Science, and Alcohol and other Drug Studies at Alan Hancock College in Santa Maria, California, and taught numerous workshops on addiction and recovery issues.
He worked as a private consultant to treatment programs, conducted more than 30 Certification trainings for the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association, and served on CSAT’s Consensus Panel on acupuncture and addiction. His publications include "Acupuncture: New Perspectives in Chemical Dependency Treatment" (Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment, V10 No1, pp 35-43), "Acupuncture as a Foundation for Treatment Services" (Addiction and Recovery, November/ December, 1993, pp 26-28), Transformation and Recovery: A Guide for the Design and Development of Acupuncture-Based Chemical Dependency Treatment Programs, and The Praxis of Recovery: A New Vision for Success in Addiction Treatment (2014) and "Conceptualizing Successful Long-Term Recovery from Substance Use and Addictive Disorders."
