Glenn Duncan LPC, LCADC, CCS, ACS

Executive Director
Glenn was born in NJ, he later moved to Massachusetts and then Kentucky. He settled back in NJ at the ripe old age of 10, and has lived here since 1976. He received his Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology from Western Carolina University in 1992 and is a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Licensed Clinical Alcohol/Drug Counselor. He is also a Certified Clinical Supervisor (Addictions Supervision Credential) and an Approved Clinical Supervisor (LPC Supervision Credential). Glenn has worked in both residential and outpatient settings. His "private practice" is spent teaching substance abuse and clinical supervision coursework, and he also conducts substance abuse evaluations privately. Glenn currently teaches and has taught for many different organizations such as Rutgers University and the NJ Prevention Network. He is very proud of the team assembled here at HDAP as you can readily see by reading through this website. He has teamed up with people he has worked with previously, such as Prevention Director Mary Hanley and Clinical Director Jass Pelland.

Glenn is responsible for the administrative, fiscal and clinical management of HDAP. Responsibilities include: managing HDAP's budget, administrative management of 20 staff, grant writing, fundraising, working with Board of Directors, community perform and teach clinical supervision requires remaining active as a therapist. Thus, while much of his job is administratively focused, he continues to hold a small individual clinical caseload (adolescent and adult), conduct groups, and perform substance abuse evaluations and intakes. Glenn's Licensed Professional Counselor License #: 37PC00095000 and his Licensed Clinical Alcohol & Drug Counselor License #: 37LC00120700. Glenn is also a Certified Clinical Supervisor and an Approved Clinical Supervisor
Glenn's primary approach to treatment is Cognitive Behavioral and Motivational Enhancement therapies, and he has also been trained in Gestalt Therapy. He firmly believes that substance dependence has both biochemical and environmental factors that lead to, and help reinforce people's addiction. Glenn believes that as many routes as there are to becoming addicted, there are as many routes out. Each person has to find the path of recovery that works best for them. The role of the therapist is to assist the client by working as a guide, a mirror, and ultimately working to help train that person to be independent of a need for further therapy.
When he's not working, Glenn spends time with his family; his wife and 3 children (2 girls and a boy). He loves volleyball, softball (though he has been known to break a bone or three in the 20 plus years of playing softball), and making sure all his kids become rollercoaster fans (so far he's got 2 out of 3 converted, and has high hopes for the 3rd). He plays guitar, and he is an avid computer buff. This website was completely designed by Glenn, and redesigned, and then tweaked a bit. He also enjoys writing essays (similar in style to those of Augusten Burrows and David Sedaris).
