About Us

The TRT Story

The Recovery Team began in the early 1980’s with both a friendship and a vision.

A friendship between two men who had begun their own recovery and a vision of giving back to others by creating a treatment facility that goes to the heart of what addicts need most: a disciplined, but loving environment in which they and their families can recover. A center that offers the kind of nurturing care that is essential to recovery. A center where clients are treated as family. A place where individual needs are heard and met and no one is hopeless.

In 1995, Bill Schrader and Fred Pettersen opened Recovery Resources — a small outpatient clinic using state-of-the-art treatment strategies and old fashioned 12-step tools. Their success was immediate, prompting numerous expansions over the years while remaining true to their commitment and core beliefs. Since then, they have helped thousands of men and women become free from addiction and go on to build productive lives that matter.

In 2012 the company was restructured and renamed it The Recovery Team.

Together with their family of dedicated therapists they have refined and honed the quality of care that is offered. The rewards for everyone at The Recovery Team continue to be too many to count. Though, none are greater than seeing the faces of former clients who return for monthly alumni meetings; hearing their laughter and the stories of how their lives and families are flourishing is indeed a vision fulfilled.

The TRT Mission

Helping people learn how to live a clean and sober life is our mission.

We help those who are addicted to alcohol and drugs, as well as those with co-occurring mental health disorders, gain their freedom and recover. Because addiction is a disease that affects the entire family, we also offer a program created just for them, Family Weekends.

Restoring lives, reuniting families, bringing lasting freedom, hope and meaning to those whose lives have been shattered by addiction. That’s our mission.

The Joint Commission Gold Seal
of Approval®

Our facility voluntarily underwent a thorough evaluation by The Joint Commission. The goal of the evaluation? To see if our facility meets The Joint Commission’s rigorous performance standards in delivering quality, safe care. By meeting these standards, our facility received The Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval® – an internationally recognized symbol of quality.

“Our mission from the beginning was simple: To help alcoholics and drug addicts get well — to recover from the bondage of addiction and live the life they were meant to lead. To guide them from the gates of hell to the road of recovery. It has been our life’s work and most gratifying journey.”
