O’Connor Professional Group Is More Than a Business Endeavor

OPG is a mission sparked by my experience accessing resources for my youngest brother who struggled with addiction and anxiety for over ten years. I founded O’Connor Professional Group to help families, like mine, find high-quality resources and develop strong community-based supports. OPG is more than a company it’s a team of dedicated individuals working towards the single goal of helping people navigate these complex issues. Learn more about the people that make OPG what it is.
