The Tree Story
Our logo represents our journey of recovery. Behind Avery Road Treatment Center is a tree that has stood as long as the program. At some point it became a tradition to throw your shoes in the tree to represent leaving the past behind and walking forward on a new path and a new attitude.
This tree represents a turning point for many in recovery.
Strengthening the roots of recovery.
ROAD TO RECOVERY TV
Tree of Hope now has a TV show, Road to Recovery, on Montgomery County TV (Channel 16). Our Director of Outreach, James Sutton is our host reporting all things recovery. Airs Tuesdays at 9pm. We will embed and street videos on our Road to Recovery Page as episodes air. Check us out!
Provider Town Hall for Peers
Due to the pandemic, Tree of Hope hosts a monthly town hall meeting bringing together Providers and Peers from across the State. Providers attend to inform the public on the services they provide, their protocols, how to gain access to their services and bed availability. Peers attend to learn about available resources, to learn about admission processes and to form relationships with providers and peers. Everyone on or who has been on our call is a part of a listserv that Peers use to make requests for services for their recoverees. This gives them the ability to find services real time with a direct connection to the Providers. If you want to be added to the listserv, you must attend the town hall to make the request. We meet the second Thursday of each month on Zoom at 1pm, details below.
