Samantha Garcia – Inspired Growth and Transformation

Driven by her passion for inspiring and nurturing growth, Samantha brings invaluable treatment experience to Adelante Recovery. Her commitment lies in making a meaningful impact on individuals, no matter how big or small, within their early recovery.

Informed by her own experience with addiction with close family members, Samantha has great respect and admiration for the resilience shown by individuals in early recovery—confronting their darkest moments with courage and acceptance. The most rewarding and meaningful experience for Samantha lies in witnessing a client’s transformation from this darkness—“a testament to the power of recovery.”

A pillar of Adelante’s medical staff, Samantha possesses a comforting and uplifting personality that draws everyone in. Whether with staff or clients, even on the most challenging days, her unwavering positivity becomes a beacon everyone can rely on.

Hailing from Orange County, Samantha’s upbringing instilled in her a deep connection to family values and an unwavering commitment to hard work. She possesses a remarkable consistency in seeing tasks through to completion and is entrusted time and again to execute tasks with precision and reliability. In her pursuit of continuous growth, Samantha is currently working towards LVN, EMT, and RN certifications in the future.

Her world extends beyond the treatment space to a community of pets—a trio of dogs, Bear, Tank, and Lucy; two tortoises, Brownie and Baby Jr.; two birds, Petie and Spike; and a cat named Lyla—showcasing her deep love for animals. A self-proclaimed enthusiast for all things Marvel/DC and Harry Potter, her inner geek is also alive and well, including frequent visits to museums showcasing naturalist and medieval historical art.

When not immersed in her role, Samantha finds joy in hiking, photography, and the discipline of Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. While sports may not be her forte, she keenly follows UFC/MMA, indulging in the athleticism and strategy of the sport.

Samantha firmly believes that quality care hinges on meeting clients where they are at, leading with love and compassion,  and making a genuine effort to understand their individual stories.
