Quality Results with Experience you can trust.
Alexandra Cadet, B.S.
Ms. Cadet began her Substance Abuse journey over 9 years ago as a Behavioral Health Technician where she gained firsthand experience in Recovery Residences. She later worked at the Department of Children and Families’ Substance Abuse and Mental Health Program as a Licensing and Quality Assurance Specialist with over 500 Providers. This process involved analyzing applications for accuracy; preparing submission for PLADS, Requesting and reviewing local and FDLE background checks in order to determine eligibility for licensure prior to conducting a licensure site inspection.
Since parting ways with the Substance Abuse and Mental program, Ms. Cadet has become Co-Owner of Legacy Consulting Agency which specializes in regulatory compliance, national accreditation, licensure, quality assurance and developing policies and procedures. She has experience with navigating licensing for the Department of Children and Families, Joint Commission, Florida Association of Recovery Residences and Agency for Health Care Administration.
As a consultant, Ms. Cadet prides herself on being precise. She understands that in the substance abuse field there is very little room for error. “Precision is, after all, not only a form of responsibility and a kind of pleasure, but an instrument of compassion. To be precise requires care, time, and attention to the person, place, or process being described.”- Marilyn Chandler McEntyre. Ms. Cadet is furthering her dedication to the field by pursing a master’s degree in Mental Health and Counseling with an anticipated completion date of May 2020.
