About Ben Cort

Ben-Cort-headshot-sqBen’s passion for recovery, prevention and harm reduction comes from his own struggle with substance abuse. Sober since 6/15/96, Ben has been a part of the recovery community in almost every way imaginable; from a recipient to a provider to a spokesperson Cort has a deep understanding of the issues and a personal motivation to see the harmful effects of drug and alcohol abuse minimized.

In 2012 Ben left his position as a HR director with a Denver based S&P 500 firm to help start the Colorado based nonprofit, Phoenix Multisport. As an original board member and then their first full time employee, Ben was instrumental in building this organization that has received frequent national recognition for their innovative approach to building sober communities around sport and healthy activities.

Ben joined the drug policy conversation at the national level in 2012 after leaving PM to join the “No on 64” Campaign. Following the passage of A64 Ben was appointed to the Board of Directors of Project SAM (Smart Approaches to Marijuana). Ben’s interest in the intersection of recovery and public policy has made him frequent guest in the media and popular speaker.

In 2015 Ben started ATMO, an organization advocating for responsible and ethical marketing practices in the addiction treatment field. ATMO provides a framework for organizations to improve their practices and education to individuals in the field.

Ben is The Director of Professional Relations for CeDAR, a world-class center for residential addiction and co-occurring disorders treatment in Aurora, CO that is part of the University of Colorado Health System.
