Our Team Members

The caring staff of The Crane are a one of a kind collection of persons in long term recovery and advocates of recovery together fighting for a common cause of sobriety.

Ava Gale Allison

Program Director

As a person in long-term recovery, I am pleased to be able to work in a program that provides the kind of services we provide here at the center. My recovery began in Clayton County 23 years ago, at which time I began volunteering at Clayton Center. I began employment with the CSB shortly thereafter, as well as obtaining my Credential in addiction counseling. I have seen the addiction services at Clayton CSB expand and grow to meet the high needs of the community during this time to include day treatment, drug court, and residential services, among others.

Certified Addiction Recovery Empowerment Specialist

I started working with these amazing people on October 1, 2018 and it has been a wonderful journey. My co-workers are my family away from home and I always can count on them to help me get through whatever situation I am faced with. So today I do the work God has put before me: to serve and be an advocate for those who can’t speak for themselves.
