Adult Program Services Director
Ryan Cavendish joined KBBH in 2011 bringing more than a decade of expertise in the management and direct service delivery of Co-Occurring Disorders. With Ryan’s leadership and passion, KBBH launched Substance Use Disorder treatment services for adolescents and adults and developed multiple community-based programs and partnerships that focus on improving behavioral health conditions and quality of life for our community. His enthusiastic, consumer-driven, progressive approach to mental health and addiction treatment services has put KBBH on the cutting edge of behavioral health care. Ryan’s leadership of adult services includes growing our capacity to develop effective jail diversion, mobile crisis response, individual therapy, and residential service programs.
With Ryan’s efforts to bend the curve toward a healthier community and passion for eliminating the stigmas that build barriers to treatment, KBBH will continue to lead with a forward-thinking, trauma-informed approach to creating pathways to highly effective behavioral health care. Since planting roots and starting a family in the Klamath Basin, Ryan has fallen in love with the community and all it has to offer. In his down time, you will find him enjoying family events and the full experience of our local outdoor recreational opportunities.
