Jessica Alcala, LCDC

YES Program Manager

Jessica is a licensed chemical dependency counselor for our Y.E.S Program at Rise Recovery. She was born and raised in west side San Antonio, TX. Jessica is passionate about serving others who are struggling with alcohol and drug addiction. Being in long term recovery since 2009, she is a member of a 12 Step fellowship, and is dedicated to helping others.

Being addicted to substances at a young age Jessica was unaware of places like Rise Recovery existed. She stated, “If I had only known that place like Rise Recovery existed I may have gotten help sooner, but I am so grateful for my road to recovery. ” Being a part of the Rise Recovery Family, she is determined to helping the younger community in recovery.

“Working in the Y.E.S program has shown me the importance of how much our community needs programs like Y.E.S in the school districts.”

When not at work she enjoys being outside in nature, spending time with her family, listening to music,
drawing, gardening, and attending recovery meetings.
