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.

Surrender but never give up the fight! Be humble, but proud of how far you’ve come! You are a strong individual, but you are not alone! The best is yet to come!

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

Jordan Weaver

Jordan Weaver, CDCA II, QMHS III

Crisis Intervention Manager

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!

I used to play the triangle in band class …. ding….. ding…..

As for staying sober, it is so difficult. But, the struggle will be worth it. I meet people all of the time in criminal court at their lowest point. When they fight to get back, every single thing in their life is better. Keeping that in mind and focusing on all of the people who love you and want you to be better helps.
