Roman Olay, MBA

Director of Operations

Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area in a military family, Roman Olay studied industrial engineering at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. After completing his undergraduate degree, he went on to earn an MBA at Santa Clara University. Early in his career, Olay worked in high tech for companies like Intel and Applied Tech, but the dot-com bust sent him in a new direction. He relocated to Los Angeles and moved into finance and financial planning, doing everything from taxes and loans to investments and insurance. The 2008 financial meltdown had Olay searching for a more stable industry in which to use his talents. He looked to healthcare, and was recruited by The Canyon in 2008, where he’s become an integral part of the staff as Director of Operations. He connected instantly with the leadership and enjoys being part of a smaller team where he can have a larger impact.

Today, Olay makes his home in Redondo Beach with his wife and two children. Always drawn to active pursuits, he played rugby in high school and college and was involved in competitive shooting, competing in the Junior Olympics as a teen and ROTC in college. Inheriting her father’s drive, Olay’s daughter plays championship-level water polo, with Olay serving as coach.


Dear Friends,

On November 10, 2018, the Woolsey Fire destroyed The Canyon at Peace Park’s treatment facility. At this time, The Canyon at Peace Park is not accepting patients for any services. We arranged for the safe and seamless discharge or transition of all patients when we were forced to evacuate due to the fire.

For over 12 years, The Canyon at Peace Park has been privileged to provide integrated treatment for addiction and co-occurring disorders to patients across the nation. Our main focus has always been on our patients and their success. We have served hundreds of patients and their families, providing exclusive treatment and services for a wide range of behavioral health and addiction issues.

Our trained, compassionate staff has been committed to delivering quality patient care with dignity and respect, with the goal of helping our patients return to their communities as healthier individuals. We are extremely proud of the sacrifices of those who worked every day, often under challenging circumstances, to positively impact our patients’ lives.

We thank the physicians and staff for their expertise and dedication in providing high quality, compassionate treatment and care to the patients we have served.

We look forward to carrying on The Canyon at Peace Park’s legacy through our outpatient locations in Santa Monica and Encino. Foundations Recovery Network also has other residential and outpatient facilities around the country offering the same high quality of service you’ve come to expect from us.
