Over the past year, Dave and the Fathom team have collaborated with the Root Center team to develop a new narrative, name, visual identity and brand strategy for the organization that had been known as the Hartford Dispensary for nearly 150 years.

“In our work together, we have built a strategic partnership with Dave and his colleagues at Fathom,” said Root Center President & CEO Steven Zuckerman. “As we seek to expand our services and our impact with new locations across the state, Dave will bring a crucial perspective and expertise to our board.”

Headquartered in Manchester, CT, the Root Center for Advanced Recovery has clinics in: Bristol, Hartford (3 locations), Manchester, New Britain, New London, Norwich, Torrington, and Willimantic. Today, the organization provides addiction treatment services that include medication-assisted treatment, intensive outpatient counseling, and mental health services for nearly 6,000 patients per day. In addition, the Root Center is adding services for adolescents and to treat a diverse array of emerging addictions.

“I am thrilled to join the board and support the life-saving work of the Root Center,” said Mr. Louden. “The organization already has an enormous impact on the communities it serves and has an opportunity to expand that impact significantly. I look forward to helping support this crucial mission.”
