Mark Taylor currently serves in the role as Addiction Clinician with River City Comprehensive Counseling Services. Mark is a lifelong resident of Richmond, and a graduate of Richmond Public Schools. Mark is also a 2005 graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) where he earned his B.S. Business Administration and Management. Also, Mark received his Substance Abuse Counseling Certification at J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College in 2018, and is currently enrolled in the Master of Social Work Program (Clinical Concentration) at VCU with an expected date of graduation in the fall of 2023. ​

Mark was recently a mentee with the African American Alumni Council (AAAC), and a participant in the Ram’s in Recovery Collegiate Program at VCU. Most recently, Mark passed the Certified Substance Abuse Counselor (CSAC) exam with the National Association for Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors (NAADAC) in 2022 to meet the state requirements in Virginia. Mark has a robust history in the Human Service and Addiction Field dating back to 2005 when he served as a facilitator in a Christian Recovery Ministry at First Baptist Church of South Richmond. Subsequently, Mark became employed to work with At-Risk Youth as a Therapeutic Mentor at a mentoring agency which cemented a career path outside of his initial desire to work in Business. ​

Mark combined his lived experiences with numerous years of supervision and trainings to work with individuals that live with Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders, to serve as a Registered Peer Recovery Specialist (RPRS), Qualified Mental Health Professional with Adults (QMHPA), and is looking forward to becoming a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) after completing all licensing requirements once graduate school ends at VCU in 2023. In 2021, Mark was awarded a $20,000 scholarship from the Virginia Recovery Foundation to assist in his efforts to fund his collegiate journey.

Mark enjoys comedy, concerts, movies, reading, running, and spending time with family and loved ones during his leisure time.
