about hired power

The Founder’s story:
Hired Power was founded in 2002 by a woman with passion and a vision. Deborah Felin Magaldi, a leading business owner and professional, knew the difficulties of transitioning newly acquired recovery skills into her home and professional life. Deborah had experienced several of the top treatment centers in the country, yet returning home and maintaining recovery continued to be difficult. With the support of a sober companion living in her home, Deborah successfully overcame personal and professional challenges remaining on the road to lasting recovery. To this day Deborah believes having this service saved her life. Deborah dedicated herself to creating a company that could provide professional Certified Personal Recovery Assistants to others who continued to struggle.

At the end of 2005, Deborah passed the reins of her vision to her executive team leader, Nanette Zumwalt. Deborah and her husband Mark returned home to the Rocky Mountains and remains avid supporter and adviser to Hired Power.

I believe the hardest part of recovery is after treatment, when you step back into the real world. Having a Sober Companion by my side right out of treatment was extra motivation to stay clean and sober. Their staff has a talent of helping you reach your highest potential without being pushy. Hired Power shows they care. They don’t just say they care- they live by it.

I have worked with Nanette Zumwalt and the Hired Power team for over 8 years in several different capacities; they have continued to uphold integrity and kindness with clients, families and other professionals. I can say that they have been transparent, understanding and honest.

Eloise Gene-Black, CADCII

Hired Power opened my eyes to a whole different way of living. Having someone with me who was educated, compassionate, and empathetic to my situation made me feel extremely safe and valued as I walked through this scary time of my life.

I have worked in the field of chemical dependency for several years and helped 100’s of families; however, when a family member of mine needed help, I knew that I was too close to the situation. I called Hired Power to help and within minutes, I had someone working on the care my loved one.

Paige Willard, CRC Health

Thanks again for being there for us and guiding us through some rough waters. Your kindness and genuine concern deeply touched my soul and we are all grateful our paths crossed when they did. You are a truly gifted professional, keep on doing what you do so well.

Linda, California

Thank you for your support. Having someone with me when I went home to talk with my family was more important than I ever imagined. I couldn’t have done it alone.

Client, Dallas,Texas

Returning home to the same situations, the same friends, job and lifestyle were my biggest fears. Having a PRA with me changed all that. I was able to leave my house, go to work, meetings and family outings with the support I needed. Thank you for helping me get my life back.

Client, Atlanta, Georgia

Hired Power has been the only consistency my niece has had throughout this treatment process. Thank you

Family Member, New York

I just want to thank Hired Power for the PRA. He was a perfect match and I can’t say enough…. He was intensely committed. This is the first time I have been clean in over 30 years. Thank you again
