Our Inspiration

Inspired by her own struggle with alcoholism, Maureen Traynor became a leader in the field of helping people recover from addictions of all forms. Maureen founded Choices Counseling Center in 1985 and after working with thousands of alcoholics and addicts for 25 years, passed away in 2010.The Maureen Traynor Foundation carries on the legacy that she began by helping people seek counseling and treatment for addiction.

About Maureen

Maureen Traynor was widowed in 1976, leaving her to raise seven children as she struggled with her own alcoholism. That struggle and the lessons she learned during the recovery process inspired Maureen to go back to school and at age 52, receiving her Master's Degree in Education and Counseling from St. Lawrence University in Upstate New York. During that time, she was employed as Director of Volunteer Services at the nearby St. Lawrence Psychiatric Center. After attaining sobriety, Maureen felt a call to help others who shared similar struggles.
