Chicago, Illinois- Today, Haymarket Center, a leader in the field of substance use disorders and behavioral health treatment, announced the establishment of its inaugural Leadership Council. The Council is comprised of a group of diverse leaders invested in Haymarket Center’s mission to aid people who are suffering from behavioral health disorders in their recovery. The Leadership Council comes together to bring awareness of Haymarket’s mission in the community and help further the conversation about the services they provide.

“Haymarket’s mission is to provide treatment to those suffering from substance use disorders and mental health issues and we believe this diverse group will further that objective,” said President and CEO, Dan Lustig, Psy.D., MISA II, CAADC, “Each member was chosen because they possess the skills, expertise and passion to help those in need.
