Matthew Lee

Director of Operations

What is your full name, title, and the location you work out of? 

Matthew John Lee – Director of Operations at Bonfire.

Where did you grow up?

I grew up in Nashua, NH (still live there with my family).

Where did you go to school? Collegiate degree? What was your focus of study? 

I am currently enrolled at Southern New Hampshire University to receive my Associates in Business, with a focus on Healthcare Administration.

What is your passion for working in the treatment field? (You can share your own recovery story, or you don’t have to disclose).

My passion for working in this field comes from struggling with addiction myself. My sobriety date is 12/29/2015. I lost everything because of my addiction, including my children and home. Today I have my children back, and a new baby. My kids are 11 years, 7 years, and 9 months old. Their mother and I struggled for years, but work very hard every day to be the best parents we are capable of being.

What do you do for your job? List a few responsibilities. 

My job is to oversee the day-to-day operations of the facility. I make sure that the employees function as a cohesive unit, and that together we provide the best care possible for our clients.

What is your favorite part of your job? 

My favorite part of my job is seeing our clients begin to turn their lives around. The fact that I get to be a small part of that change means the world to me. I also enjoy learning daily, because if you’re not learning, you’re not growing!

What do you think sets Amatus apart from other treatment centers? 

What sets Amatus apart from other facilities is the family feel. You walk through the doors and just know that you are in the right place, surrounded by people who are truly there for you and who challenge you to be the best version of yourself daily.

Anything else you want to include in your bio?

I love being a father; it is the best gift that I have been given. In my spare time I enjoy camping, going to Red Sox games, hiking, skiing, and just being active. I am truly grateful for the fact that I can do these things today!
