OUR TEAM

LISA FERGUSON

Founder and Principal

In 1988 Lisa went to her first 12-step meeting and feel in love the complexities of the soul as it tries to recover from addiction and the genius of the 12-steps. With recovery also came a new world-she turned around her failing horse farm because she saw the beauty in every person and the sanctity of what transpires between a person and a horse. While the horse farm is now her friend's, she still carries that love of horses. She combines all the moving pieces that SAMSHA recommends for lasting recovery in Right Path House. She's raised three children with her husband, Rob. The whole family is in recovery.

ALYSA RATCHKE

Alysa is a loving and honest person. While she is an exemplary sober woman, she's also an artist and creative master. She sees good in each of us and brings it out. She'll never lose sight of her goal, to grow as a sober woman and she conveys that deep sense of purpose. In keeping with the philosophy to live your best life, she not only showcases her ability in the art workshops she offers, but also takes her high energy to help organize fun things to do. We are, after all, located in a resort area on the Connecticut Shore.

STACEY DOWD

Family Coach

The family often does now know how to get out of the way of recovery. Stacey can help people realize that the future is coming whether you're prepared or not, so it's best to learn a thing or two about what a healthy boundary looks like and it's purpose as a real helper in recovery. She also offers self-care coaching so you'll always have oxygen.
