President and Chief Executive Officer, Philip Licht

Philip has a powerful testimony and passion to see others set free from addictions. He was ordained as a minister in 2005 and has spent the last 11 years helping others.

He is skilled at establishing relational networks, building infrastructure, and developing systems that facilitate agency growth, community involvement, and personal freedom. In 2008, he became the Executive Director of Set Free Alaska and has been instrumental in its formation and current success.

As a statewide leader, Philip serves in a leadership capacity for several organizations. He is the Board Chair for the Governor’s Advisory Board on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse. Philip serves as a steering committee member for ROCK Mat-Su (an effort to increase family resilience and decrease child maltreatment), and Recover Alaska (a statewide initiative to end the devastating impact of excessive alcohol use. He was recognized by Governor Sean Parnell as one of the “Great Alaskans” of 2012 for his work in the substance abuse field.
