Ryan leads the Ascend team with a passion to help others with over 12 years of experience directly supervising the care of those suffering from addiction. Ryan has helped over 2,500 patients during his time in the field. In addition to his work in the field, Ryan not only received his BS and MA from the University of Utah, but also teaches at Utah Valley University. However, for Ryan, addiction is more than just a field of study. He has watched addiction impact his own life and the lives of others around him. Many of his close friends have been lost to addiction. Ryan has the ability to relate to his patients, which gives him the invaluable perspective of a bird’s-eye-view of the addiction recovery process. He can show patients that recovery is not just escaping addiction but being able to truly extend healing beyond residential treatment.

Ryan Salter, LCSW - President and CEO
Johanna Salter, BS - Vice President & COO
Johanna has been with Ascend Recovery since the beginning. Before she joined Ascend, she owned, managed, and operated a holistic wellness educational company for nine years that she opened after graduating from the University of Utah with a bachelor’s degree in Behavioral Science and Health. She started her company and joined Ascend for the same reason: to create an addiction recovery program that utilized all the tools and resources that offered individualized treatment plans. Her work at Ascend has accomplished just that.
