Midwest Recovery Staff

At Midwest Recovery Center, each staff member brings a combination of education, training, professional certifications, and hands-on experience. Your team is engaged in your recovery and will approach your treatment from a variety of disciplines to meet your needs.

Many members of our staff are in long-term recovery themselves and have a passion for helping people suffering from addiction. We are real people in recovery, we have walked the path you are embarking on, and we are excited to help you.

Matt Bell

Co-Founder

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.

What makes Midwest stand out?

Midwest is a great place to change, but a terrible place to remain the same. Our expectations and standards are set high for our clients, but also for our staff because many of our staff have lived it. We realize everyone’s process looks different; however, I know for a fact that when someone walks into our agency, they walk into the best place to set them up for a beautiful life beyond their wildest imagination.

Josh Dressel

Co-Founder

What drew you into the field?

I am in recovery myself. I was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio, and I returned to Toledo late in my 20’s. I was in detox with Matt Bell, and we got involved with Team Recovery shortly afterwards. I jumped headfirst into sobriety and recovery, and the progress I have seen at both Midwest facilities and with Team Recovery keeps me coming back every day, eager to do more and help more people.

What makes Midwest Recovery Center stand out?

The difference between Midwest and a lot of other facilities is our abstinence-based program. We believe abstinence and participation in a recovery support system, like the 12-step model, will provide results. The other thing that stands out about our facility is our philosophy to help everyone that calls us find the right resources. We do not tell anyone no,;if we can not accommodate them we will try our hardest to find a place for them with another facility or organization.

What is the most significant part of treatment?

Success in recovery is very much about accountability. Every individual is responsible for holding themselves accountable, but we also make sure that they know that we expect them to be held accountable to us as well.
