Our Staff


Director of Operations

Before working at The Friend’s House Iain had many different adventures. He has worked in many different fields including four years in the Army and lived in several different regions of the country as well as two years spent in Europe. His battle with addiction has been lifelong; however it greatly intensified with the passing of his father in 2015. Recovery has been the biggest adventure yet. Iain says that his work at The Friends House has been the most rewarding of his life. He says the most important part of working with people seeking recovery is to “just love them”.

Iain has recently been promoted to Director of Operations by the Board.  His dedication to MCRC is unmeasurable.  He is looking forward to getting out meeting more people letting them know our mission.  His passion will continue to make our organization grow and be able to help more of those that need it.
