Shari Rigg, LAC, is the Executive Director at Stepping Stones Behavioral Health Services, a Montana state-approved agency, providing quality, affordable addiction treatment services in Missoula, MT and the surrounding area. She has been a licensed addiction counselor since 2000 and has worked in leadership positions in the corrections field, for non-profit community agencies, and in private practice.

Rigg is widowed with two adult children and several grandchildren.

Coordination with other community services is often an important part of the recovery process.
