Recovery is hard. They made it easier.

If you’re an Indiana family who craves a healthy, substance-free life– don’t just look for a treatment center. Go where your Recovery Matters.

“I had a love of a drug. Now I have the love of my family.”

Keep hope alive.

Keep hope alive.

Meet Victoria. Single-mom and caregiver to her dying mother, Victoria used cocaine, heroin, and alcohol for 34 years to numb the heartaches. In 1995, after losing her mom and her home, she found herself in a dark alley promising this time was the last time. And it was.

Victoria checked herself into our residential treatment program, followed up with six months in a halfway house, and regular group meetings. Soon Victoria found her life’s work was encouraging others with addiction. She realized if residents had a spark of hope–she could help fan it into a flame. Victoria went back to school and today, she thrives as a devoted Mom, Gramma to three, and a Program Supervisor for Recovery Matters.

What does she want you to know today? “Keep hope alive.”
