Ben Smith, M.A., CAC
Certified Addictions Counselor
Ben Smith currently provides services for adolescents and adults at Wellspring Christian Clinic in his role as a Certified Addictions Counselor. Having received a B.S. in Psychology from Auburn University and an M.A. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Alabama, Ben has served as the Coordinator of Alcoholism Services at Eastside Mental Health Center and Program Administrator of Chemical Dependency Services at Hill Crest Hospital. He also served as the area Director of Young Life for 12 years. Conceptualizing chemical dependency as a “equal opportunity disease,” Ben understands that it touches the Christian community and is often kept secret due to the stigma attached to addiction. Although recovery can be a difficult process, Ben’s goal is to replace the pain of addiction with the peace that comes with sobriety.
