Chief Executive Officer
The Creed of Recovery provides mental health and substance use assessments along with individual, group, family, and trauma informed out-patient sessions. We also offer structured recovery housing for adult men.
It is our goal to help people understand that recovery is a process of personal growth and work with them to build trust in that process as they grow.
The outcome of our mission and goals can be measured in each person we serve by an increase in their hope and satisfaction with life.
Our vision is to provide a structured setting with guidance while our clients are in the process of changing their lives.
Creed Alumni/Housing Manager is chosen by Fairfield County ADAMH Board for Recovery Supports video.

Webster defines creed as a set of beliefs or aims that guide someone's actions. Our set of beliefs are easier for an addict to understand than someone who has never been caught up in the cycle of addiction, such as:
