Meet ICFREI Director

Jackie Daniels

After 17 years of clinical practice, Jackie has fought to reduce shame, increase standards, and boost outcomes for patients across the country. Her passion began in community mental health centers before she started Indiana’s first collegiate recovery program. Throughout her career, Jackie has partnered with programs like SAMHSA to prevent suicide, relieve addiction, and expand awareness. 

As a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) and certified alcohol and drug addiction consultant (CADAC V), she has devoted countless hours to deeply understand and directly heal her community. With compassion and insight, Jackie Daniels is Vice President of Community Relations at Indiana Center for Recovery where she pushes for better access, standards, and treatment for all.

All guest speakers, formal presenters, and specialist educators hold licensure and qualification in their subject matter. The annual symposium features leaders and experts making substance use and mental health treatment more accessible, effective, and compassionate.

All ICFREI events are free to professionals and the public. Giving CEU for nurses, counselors, and social workers specializing in addiction and mental health—all ICFREI events remain available to anyone invested in community recovery.

  • Continued education for professionals
  • Advocacy training for former patients
