Executive Director, Principal
Jordan Hamilton was the Director of Admissions for the Choice House companies since June 2013, and then assumed that same role for The Lookout Boulder in August, 2015. In July, 2016 he was again promoted into a supervisory role, overseeing staff and the operations at all three programs to insure ongoing growth, efficiency, and quality control. Now, as of July 2017, Jordan is the new Executive Director for Choice House, LLC.
Jordan joined the Choice House team in early 2013 after a four-year career as a men’s supervisor at the well-known Jaywalker Lodge program in Carbondale, Colorado, along with a simultaneous position at Saint Paul’s Sober Living, also in Carbondale. His responsibilities included admissions, crisis management, and a multitude of other tasks that come with working with men in early recovery. From 2013 until 2016, he acted in the role of the on-site resident manager at Choice House and because of his talent working with addicts and their families, Jordan was quickly promoted to Director of Admissions.
Jordan received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Colorado and in his free time he enjoys riding motorcycles, snowboarding, running with his dog, and spending time in the Colorado backcountry. He sets an inspirational example for the men in our programs through compassionate leadership and by living a strong program of recovery himself.
