Matt Bell

Matt Bell, CDCA II, QMHS III

Chief Executive Officer

Where are you from?

Toledo Ohio

What is your favorite part of working in this field?

I love the challenge of the business side of things. Running a behavioral health company is not an easy task, but when you can figure it out for the betterment of your community, it’s fun! I absolutely love seeing parents and spouses trusting their addicted loved one again, and clients getting their children back. Watching a client achieve their goals, whatever that may be, is the best thing in the world. I personally like working with people who don’t necessarily want to be clean or sober when they arrive. Seeing the light bulb turn on and knowing that they understand some things about themselves is an empowering moment.

What would your message be to someone that is struggling to stay sober?

I would ask them the following… If drinking and using drugs is your answer to everything… what is your question? Change your attitude and you’ll change your life.

Name a fun fact about yourself:

Angie

Angela Hendren, LISW-S

Clinical Director

Where are you from?

Born and raised in northwest Ohio.

What is your favorite part of working in this field?

It’s always been about the people for me. We typically meet people at their lowest points, hear and share in their stories and their pain. But every small step of progress and growth, every moment of insight and clarity, every goal achieved makes every day, every struggle worth it. The potential impact our team can have on others is so powerful and to be a part of that healing process is the most rewarding part of working in behavioral health.

What would your message be to someone that is struggling to stay sober?

“You can’t go back and change the beginning but you can start where you are and change the ending” unknown

Watching not only the clients become the best versions of themselves, but I also enjoy spreading positivity to people that are in need of it. There is no better feeling than being the person to help turn someone’s day around.

What would your message be to someone that is struggling to stay sober?

It is a bad day, not a bad life. The feelings will pass, and you will be grateful that you stayed sober through the emotions of sobriety.

Time heals all wounds. Pain is an indicator of progress. Hang in there, cause it will get easier and it is worth it, you are worth it.

Jordan Weaver

Jordan Weaver, CDCA II, QMHS III

Director of Housing

How is our mission meaningful to you?

I think the most meaningful part of our mission is that we say “improve” (At Team Recovery our mission is to improve the overall health and wellness of individuals affected by addiction or mental health disorders.). We are never going to tell you that anyone outside of you can fix everything in the snap of a finger. We are here to help you see that you not only can improve but also deserve it!

What inspires you?

I am inspired by people who ask for help. Asking for help especially with long term sobriety or working in the substance abuse field is very difficult and takes real strength and courage.

Who is a hero of yours?

My mother (Diane Weaver). Between my brother and I, we have put my mother through so much during our addictions and the strength she shows and understanding she has is nothing short of amazing.

What would your message be to a family member or a loved one affected by addiction?

Understand that the individual who is using is not the person you love at this time is very important when trying to not enable. As an individual in recovery and an individual effected by a familiar member I have seen both sides of the coin and know there are many struggles on both sides but there is help and for me that help is Thursday night F.A.A.D. meetings with my mother and brother.

Where are you from?

Born in Oregon Ohio at St. Charles hospital but have lived a large part of my adult life in Indianapolis Indiana.

What is your favorite part of working in this field?

For me this is not work. This is living a life I had no idea I was meant for where I better myself and promote a life that my friends and family all appreciate. There is something magical about watching someone come in broken like I was and having the ability to see them begin to believe they are worth more than they have ever imagined!

What would your message be to someone that is struggling to stay sober?

Recovery is about so much more than just not using. Recovery is about rebuilding relationships, having self esteem and confidence to speak up for yourself. Being a father or mother, a son or daughter, the reason someone smiles when they are in their deepest and darkest time. Recovery is everything and using is the loss of everything. When it gets tough, keep going and know that it is possible and worth it!

Name a fun fact about yourself!

I’m someone that has to be experienced and cannot easily be put into words.

What is your favorite part about working in this field?

My favorite part about working in this field is seeing progress! The strength and will it take to get and stay sober is astonishing.

What would be your message to someone struggling to stay sober?

My message to someone who is having a hard time staying sober would be to learn to change your perspective and learn to love yourself 1st , stay humble and hustle hard. We all start from different points and just because you don’t have something today doesn’t mean you can’t get tomorrow. everything takes time but stay focused. you got this!

Ohio

How is our mission meaningful to you?

A new approach to an old problem is a reminder that just because you have always done something and it works doesn’t mean that is the only way”. We can meet people where they are at and provide them with the services that are needed.

What inspires you?

The clients inspire me! Seeing someone go through challenging times in their life and being able to see them rise above that challenge, gives me hope. Reminds me of why I get up everyday and continue to do what I do.

Who is a hero of yours?

I meet “Hero’s” everyday, I learn something from each one

What would your message be to someone that is struggling to stay sober?

Remember all the things you have gained from your sobriety, but don’t forget the things you lost from your addiction.

I am from Toledo, Ohio.

What is your favorite part of working in this field?

My favorite part is seeing someone become who they are truly meant to be after hiding/struggling during the addiction.

What would your message be to someone that is struggling to stay sober?

My message would be, that you are not alone in this world that seems so dark. There are people that have been fortunate enough to make it out and are willing to give you a helping hand. I know it’s scary but the most blissful feelings come on the opposite side of fear.

Fun fact about yourself:

I went skydiving in Colorado and that’s one of the blissful feelings I have been able to have since being sober.

Group Facilitator

Where are you from?

West Bloomfield, MI

How is our mission meaningful to you?

Our mission is the most important thing about my job. I have been in way too many treatment centers with the conventional approach and although it was helpful it did not get to the core root of my problem. I believe us as in our team are kind compassionate people who work tirelessly to support and teach the client who still suffers.

What inspires you?

Change inspires me. Watching the transformation of someone who wants better and works really hard to get better.

Who is a hero of yours?

My papa. He is 91 and lived through so much and is still one of the happiest people i know who still works, golfs and just got a new girlfriend.

What would your message be to someone that is struggling to stay sober?

IT IS POSSIBLE. If you were anything like me and feel recovery is just not meant for you i am telling you right now that is a lie. Give yourself a honest chance, believe in yourself do the work and i can promise you it will become a reality.

What would your message be to a family member or a loved one affected by addiction?

I am sorry. I am sorry we can be so selfish. I am sorry we choose to hurt you while in the process of hurting ourselves. I am sorry it feels like there is nothing you can do. Please just know that none of this is your fault. You did not fail us. We failed you not because we did not love you but because we were sick.

Name a fun fact about yourself!

I love to workout and play golf

Sylvania, Ohio

How is our mission meaningful to you?

I had been trying to get sober for 11 years in the “traditional approach” to sobriety and it wasn’t until I discovered I could tailor my sobriety to my individual drive and needs that I could stay sober. Being able to show others that they can too stay sober and follow their passion means the world to me.

What inspires you?

Finding and being my true self and seeing that spark in other people!

Who is a hero of yours?

What would your message be to someone that is struggling to stay sober?

You don’t have to walk this path alone. There is support and a community of love for you, too!
