Board of Directors

Lt. Lou Fisher
Lt. Lou Fisher, CEO
Lt. Lou Fisher is a 19-year veteran police Lieutenant with the Riverside Police Department. In 2005, he was given the task of creating a detective bureau, as the department had never had a dedicated unit before. He has investigated hundreds of cases, which include murder down to theft. Before entering law enforcement in 1998, he was a business owner for over 10 years in the private sector and at one point employed almost 100 people.

His main focus and success came from his aggressive approach in Narcotics and Gang investigations. Those investigations had him working along with other local departments, as well as County, State and Federal agencies over the years. He has over a decade of experience investigating the diversion and distribution of prescription drugs.

In 2012, he began to target and track addicted subjects specifically those addicted to opioids, and most of all heroin. He continues to use Intelligence Led Policing methods to combat the opioid crisis. He had the idea that he needed to divert those addicted into long term treatment in lieu of incarceration. He was quoted in an interview as saying that “we could not arrest or jail our way out of this problem.”

In early 2014, he met up with Michael Sarubbi and they co-founded what started as RiversideTIP (Treatment Incentive Program). In July 2016 they formed NJTIP, a not-for-profit corporation. The purpose would be to help support Police Departments that started “TIP” in their municipality or recognized the program as a viable option over incarceration. He spends a great deal of his time dedicated to actually finding treatment for those crippled by their addiction. He also provides informational seminars to other law enforcement agencies and high schools in the area.

My experience as a therapist includes treating those with substance abuse and/or mental health disorders in short and long-term residential, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, and general outpatient counseling. Although familiar with many different therapeutic approaches, I often incorporate Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) into most of my practice. These therapies are most effective for those seeking treatment for mood (depression, anxiety, bipolar) and personality disorders. My specialties include effective communication, conflict resolution, and emotional regulation. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) which is a therapeutic intervention that is helpful in processing painful memories or traumas that are often repressed.

I hold a Bachelor’s degree from Stockton University in psychology as well as a Master’s degree in Professional Counseling from Rosemont College. I am licensed as a Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Pennsylvania and am also recognized as a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CADC). I am also licensed in New Jersey as an Associate Counselor (LAC) and a Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LCADC). I am recognized nationally as a Certified Counselor (NCC) and Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS).
