At Ohio Treatment Center, each staff member brings a combination of education, training, professional certifications and hands-on experience. We approach treatment from a variety of disciplines and therapeutic modalities, allowing us to create a truly comprehensive, individualized treatment plan.

Angela Hendren

Clinical Director

What is your biggest passion?

Helping individuals with mental health and addiction issues live the best lives they can and promoting ethical clinical practice in other social workers.

What is the most rewarding part of your work?

The success stories, being involved in clients lives and helping them achieve success make my work worthwhile. When I see interns have that "ah-ha" moment, when they find their passion, hearing from former co-workers about how I have influenced their work in the field, is all very special.

Veronica Jewett

Admissions Coordinator

What is your biggest passion?

The passion for what I do stems merely from being a part of the Hope in someone's will to want to feel alive again. To be the voice on the other end of that phone that gives another human being the courage to face their fears. To know that I played part in being the difference in even just one persons life is something that inspires me to keep going every day. To continue fighting for and believing in what helps make me feel complete. The words and the thoughts of hopelessness are only the beginning of something wonderful for those that are ready to live and succeed. To rise and to shine.

What is the most rewarding part of your work?

Being at the lowest point in my life, I knew I needed to find something within myself that no longer felt like it existed. I was empty and broken, but completely fixable. During those times I found exactly what it was I was looking for. Surrounding myself with patients that were going through and struggling with the same kind of regrets and fears as I was. Listening to their stories. Hearing their cries and seeing their smiles. Little did I know, they all were saving my life at the same time I knew l was saving theirs. In those moments I knew I was the something that someone needed to become everything again and they all had become mine.

Nichole Hall, LPN

Nurse

What is your biggest passion?

My passion is helping and supporting people.

What is the most rewarding part of your work?

The most rewarding part of my work is when I see someone who I have helped and they can't wait to tell me about an obstacle they have overcome. They know I am rooting for them and have their best interest at heart. I love hearing about their progress.

Meghan Stone, MSW, LSW

Clinical Therapist

What is your biggest passion?

One of the reasons I became a social worker is because I have a passion for supporting populations who are unable to advocate for themselves in society and educating them in order to support themselves in the future.

What is the most rewarding part of your work?

One of the most rewarding parts of my job is the turning point, where those I am serving, start accomplishing goals they have set and to see the happiness and success along the way.

Mandi Laurell

Operations Manager

My passion is my little family, they are my world.

Lexi Anteau, B.S

Care Coordinator

What is your biggest passion?

I am passionate about learning something new everyday and using what I learn to help others succeed. I also have a passion for good food and good music. It's the little things in life that make a big difference to me.

What is the most rewarding part of your work?

The most rewarding part of my work is seeing the progress that our patients make and having the opportunity to see them overcome their day to day struggles that they have been battling with for years. There is nothing more rewarding than watching patients succeed and find happiness within their own lives, or to see them find the strength in themselves to overcome boundaries that have been holding them back. I could be having the worst day, but when I see or hear about a patient that is doing well it instantly turns my day around. I think we keep each other motivated and push each other to do better and want better.

LeeLin Beebe, MSW, LSW

Clinical Therapist

What is your biggest passion?

My passion is continuous education in all areas of life and teaching life lessons of dignity and respect for all living things.

What is the most rewarding part of your work?

The most rewarding part of my work is being the positive voice of reason in a world of chaos.

Kristie Ruff, MS CPNP

Nurse Practitioner

What is your biggest passion?

My passion, that which compels me to act, is a heart to serve others. Interestingly, the root meaning of passion is "to suffer." I am compelled to respond to others through acts of service as Jesus did. "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and give his life as a ransom for many." Mark 10:45

What is the most rewarding part of your work?

I find it most rewarding to use the gifts and talents I have be given to serve others. It's a great privilege and honor to walk along-side others, "to rejoice with those who rejoice and to weep with those who weep" (Romans 12:15), on the journey to be all that God has created us to be.

Justin Ochmanek, CDCA, QHMS

Case Manager

What is your biggest passion?

My passion is to give what was freely given to me, back to as many people as possible. That is the opportunity to change your life and be a productive sober member of society.

What is the most rewarding part of your work?

The most rewarding part of my work is seeing clients come in broken and desperate. Then be able to work with them and see them get family back in their lives, kids back in their lives, jobs, drivers licenses and succeed. Seeing clients smile daily and be happy to be alive, instead of wishing they were dead.

Heather Weemes, LSW, MSW

Clinical Supervisor

What is your biggest passion?

The profession of social work and the dedication of working for others are my passions. To be around individuals who are just as devoted as I am to better our communities and to be able to see and feel the changes made, is amazing.

What is the most rewarding part of your work?

The most rewarding part of my work is that I am given the opportunity to step out of my comfort zone and to see both professional and personal growth. As a social worker I am able to give a voice to those who may feel silenced and ultimately assist in making my community a better place.

Dustin Smith, MSW, LSW

Clinical Therapist

What is your biggest passion?

I have always enjoyed being around others and helping in anyway I can. I enjoy helping others find ope when it seems elusive. It is here at Ohio Treatment Center, that I have the privilege and opportunity to utilize my passion.

What is the most rewarding part of your work?

The most rewarding part of my work is the opportunity to see our patients lives transform through recovery. It is encouraging to see those that we serve also to partner with one another and provide encouragement and support in their pursuit for a better tomorrow.

Dr. Nancy Carroll, M.D.

Medical Director

What is your biggest passion?

Helping others, I believe to do what I love and do it right!

What is the most rewarding part of your work?

Seeing people get better and to be able to live happy and productive lives.

Danielle King, LSW, BSW

Clinical Therapist

What is your biggest passion?

My motivation and passion that guides me through life today comes from my own recovery and my family. I have my beautiful daughter, Daisy, and loving husband. My passion for helping others comes from my own struggle with addiction. I grew up in Cleveland, OH where my addiction had progressed to the point of going to countless rehabs and multiple trips to jail. In 2013 I came to beautiful Toledo, OH where I began my journey of recovery. The journey has not been easy, but it has certainly been worthwhile. I was taught early in my recovery that no matter what I go through, as long as I don't pick up, I have a chance to succeed.

What is the most rewarding part of your work?

The most rewarding part of my work is watching my patients grow in recovery. I love watching the growth my patients make week by week. When I work with my patients, I explain that recovery goes far beyond just not drinking and using, recovery encompasses change in many areas of a person's life, and I enjoy being a part of that. The reward I get, is hearing someone tell me they have obtained another sobriety coin, or that they have gotten a job, or they have got their life back!

Matt Bell

Chief Executive Officer

What is your passion?

My three biggest loves are my family, my job, and of course some entertainment! My beautiful fiancée, Monica, my 7-year-old son, Jackson, and our two puppies mean the world to me. Our fun and entertainment comes from simply being together, but I also enjoy traveling, delicious food, and my motorcycle. Team Recovery, my non-profit that I co-founded in 2015, is also a huge part of my life. It is a volunteer organization that focuses on prevention, treatment linkage, and family support.

What is the most rewarding part of your work?

The best part of my job is seeing families heal as their addicted loved one recovers is one of the most rewarding things I get to see in this field. Watching people change is truly a blessing… to first meet them only “existing” and watch them successfully graduate “living.” They now have the ability and responsibility to help someone else who is still suffering. Working together as a cohesive unit to achieve a goal is something that has always meant so much to me, and we get to do it every single day in an effort to make peoples’ lives better.
