President and Director
Arrowhead Lodge Recovery
A native of New Zealand, Robyn moved to the U.S. 30 years ago. She called Colorado home for many years and raised three children there before planting roots in Prescott. After struggling with addiction for over 30 years, Robyn changed her life with the help of a team of addiction specialists in Denver, Colorado and she entered into a new beginning, advocating for drug addicts and alcoholics.
Her professional health care career began in direct patient care in the hospice field. It was only by a chance meeting on a motorcycle trip that she met Ken Chance and it changed her life’s course forever: moving to Prescott, getting married and developing Arrowhead Lodge Recovery.
Robyn and Ken have worked together ever since in specializing and fine tuning the program that is Arrowhead Lodge Recovery. Robyn handles the day-to-day business of one of the most respected adult male facilities for addiction in the country.
Their work is focused on co-occurring disorders in men over 30. They designed it to provide adult men a safe, comfortable and secure environment in which to learn, heal and grow. Their passion is for relieving the suffering of their clients.
“Our typical client is not typical. These men have endured decades of suffering, while living with addiction. Our clients are 36 years old and just out of medical school and 83 years old with a long career in academia. They are tribal leaders, plumbing contractors, grandsons and grandfathers, husbands and sons. They suffer from chronic alcoholism or opioid addiction and every story is different. Our team are extreme professionals and we’re proud to be on the Arizona Medical Board’s preferred providers list. We also have a high staff-to-client ratio, and are able to focus intensive therapy and attention on each man, and deliver truly individualized care,” Robyn stated.
Robyn received her bachelor’s degree from Northern Arizona University and is about to complete her master’s degree from Arizona State University. In the future, Robyn plans to develop a residential program here in Prescott to serve the older women in the community and nationwide who suffer from addiction.
