Steve Thomason


Chief Executive Officer

Steve Thomason is a cofounder of Alta Loma. After working in the mental health and addiction field for 14 years he became aware that individuals with higher acuity psychiatric issues were being underserved in traditional treatment programs. This knowledge became the impetus for Alta Loma. Creating a program that focuses on individuals that have experienced multiple attempts at recovery through psychiatric hospitals and substance abuse treatment centers is his passion.

Steve is a Licensed Master of Social Work and a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor. A Texas native, he obtained his Master of Social Work from The University of Texas at San Antonio and his Bachelors in Psychology from Texas State University. Steve believes that a strong continuum of care after residential treatment is critical for long term recovery. Steve brings to Alta Loma over 13 years of Clinical and Executive experience working with numerous recovery programs throughout Texas. He is responsible for the development and vision of Alta Loma, as well as building partnerships throughout Texas to impact community awareness on dual diagnosis treatment.
