Leadership Team

We understand recovery because we've been through it ourselves

Leadership Team

Pastor Adam Comer

CEO, Director of Operations

As an ordained pastor, Adam has played a major role in developing and establishing one of the highest addiction recovery program success rates in the country, and is a highly respected leader around the community and in Middle Tennessee. He also has professional experience in healthcare and mental healthcare fields.

Adam’s studies at Liberty University include religion, ministry leadership, people management, and Christian counseling. In recovery, Adam has truly been set free from the grips of addiction: His passions, pursuits and purpose revolve around the belief that all who are weary from life-controlling issues and addiction can be led to freedom.

Adam is a proud husband to his high school sweetheart, Katie. They have been married since 2008 and have 2 children Elijah and Ellasyn. God called Adam and Katie to Middle Tennessee and they love investing into this community, both personally and professionally.

Pastor Bruce Stanley

COO, Director of Programing

Bruce is the author and founder of Lost & Found Recovery in Christ, a seven principle Christ-centered program, which is the result of his own recovery and how God led him to His truth to succeed. Bruce has been teaching men and women in recovery for many years, and many have found recovery in Christ.

As the newest Campus Pastor and Executive Officer, Bruce brings the Lost & Found curriculum to S2L Recovery students. His hope is that others can understand the importance of Christ’s saving grace for healing and freedom from addiction.

Because of Bruce’s professional experience as a Creative Director and College Program Coordinator, his leadership and curriculum development skills establish tangible recovery structure for students.

Bruce is married to Alana Stanley, father to Chance and Casey Stanley, and grandfather to Hayden and Cali Stanley. Watch Bruce's story video.

Lee Cavender

Clinical Director, LCSW

God brought Lee to S2L Recovery via a slightly different path than most of the S2L staff. Lee dealt with non-substance related addictions for nearly 20 years of his life, but has been freed through the chain-breaking power of Christ. 

Lee is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and has worked with individuals struggling with co-occuring issues, past trauma, addictions, depression, and various other life and mental health difficulties. In 2014, he developed the clinical framework for the first Veterans dorm in a Texas prison and led a team of 6 other clinicians to deliver counseling to veterans across Texas. He primarily uses cognitive-behavioral, solutions-focused, existential, and motivational interviewing therapeutic modalities. In his free time, Lee enjoys hiking, camping, board games, and spending quality time with his friends and family.
