Tzvi Heber

Tzvi Heber – CEO of Ascendant NY

Tzvi entered the field of recovery as a drug and alcohol counselor. His career change was inspired by the understood importance of treatment and his feeling of purpose when working with others. With immense gratitude, he then became the Director at Serenity Recovery. Tzvi went on to become the current CEO of Ascendant NY. The incorporation of his professional and personal experiences, guide his approach of providing treatment with humility, compassion, and dignity. As the leader of Ascendant NY, he works with his team to evolve the traditional culture of detox facilities. He seeks to fill the gaps where treatment falls short. Tzvi is cultivating individualized client-focused care- emphasizing that every person who walks through the door matters.

When Tzvi founded the YY House Foundation, these values were and remain most important. The YY House is anchored by dinners held at his house, where individuals in recovery come together. He takes pride in the non-profit’s growth- now providing aid to those struggling with access to resources, services, and more. Addiction is a disease defined by isolation. He continually works to create spaces where isolation is replaced with community. Whether at Ascendant NY, a YY House dinner, or at home with his beloved family- Tzvi is reminded of why he chose this path. He views his position as a gift and opportunity, to provide someone support while seeking treatment. His passion has never wavered when saying, “There is help and recovery is possible.”
