About Ruth Ann Rigby
Rigby is a prominent figure in the addiction recovery and mental health spaces. She has worked with some of the leading treatment providers in the United States and was recently recognized by a resolution from Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant. Because of her sky-high ethical and professional standards, she was nationally recognized with the Silver Shoe Award at the 2019 Admissions and Marketing Symposium. In 2008, Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour appointed Rigby to serve on the state’s Drug Court Advisory Board.
Rigby has served as a board member of numerous community organizations, church leadership committees, and behavioral health associations, including the Mississippi Association of Drug Court Professionals, Central Mississippi Chapter of the National Council on Alcoholism & Drug Dependency, Mississippi Association of Addiction Professionals, American Diabetes Association, National Alliance for Mental Illness and National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers.
In her free time, Rigby serves on the Advisory Board for the Center for Hope and Healing at Broadmoor Baptist Church where she is on-call to work with any family that crosses her path. She is dedicated to fighting for those caught in addiction and ending the cycle of dependency. Her leadership in action has been proven over and over again by her tireless energy and passion to change and save a person’s life. Ruth Ann, along with her husband Lt. (Ret) Joseph Rigby, are cofounders of a 501c3 nonprofit organization called First Responders of Mississippi. They created this organization to help first responders in their greatest time of need with assistance, wellness and hope.
Joining the BRC Family
Rigby looks forward to leading BRC Family of Programs marketing initiatives, developing new strategic program offerings and growing their alumni division. “I am excited to join the BRC Recovery Leadership Team; the transition will be seamless because they are like family to me already,” she says. “This opportunity gives me a larger platform to help as many families as I can, pursuing my passion of what God has called me to do. We will continue to grow and develop our programs and Alumni Division with adding Alumni Chapters throughout the country.”
Rigby is excited for this next chapter in her professional mission. “Being able to work side by side with Marsha, a leader that I have admired for years – and with the Leadership Team she has in place – it’s going to be amazing and the synergy incredible,” said Ruth Ann.
