Melissa McCarthy

Melissa McCarthy, Regional Manager

Born and raised in Ellicott City, Maryland, Melissa McCarthy joined American Addiction Centers as a Treatment Consultant in 2011 and was promoted to Mid-Atlantic Regional Manager in 2014. Melissa received a full 5-year athletic scholarship as a Varsity Women’s Lacrosse Player from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She graduated from UNC in 2007 with a B.A. in Journalism and Mass Communication.  

Melissa transitioned from North Carolina to New York upon landing a position with the National Basketball Association as an Executive Sales Assistant in Global Business Development.  At the NBA she gained a fast and furious education in business development, strategic partnerships, politics and life. 

While her personal struggle with life after sports, depression and addiction landed her in treatment, Melissa’s willingness to surrender and to receive guidance gave her the gift of freedom from active addiction and a life she never imagined. 

Melissa is relentless in her quest to connect every individual with the best resources given his/her situation so that anyone who seeks to a new way to live may find it.  

Melissa is Proudly Part of AAC's National Advocates Program
