Visions of the Cross
With a very high success rate that includes scores of family restorations and women who are being set free from lifestyles of addiction and abuse, Visions of the Cross (VOTC, Inc.) coined the slogans “We Believe in Miracles” and “Giving God the Glory.” Known for having a huge support system and a hands-on, non-religious approach, this program has quickly become known as the premier transitional housing program in Shasta County.
The founders, Steve and Tammy Lucarelli, established this program after discovering recovery for themselves. Having first hand knowledge of the actual challenges that their clients would face and what resources were available in the community to meet those needs, led them to open the first sober living house in 2001. By 2005, Visions had acquired 12 sober living homes.
In 2007, VOTC Inc. expanded its mission to 16 sober living homes, providing alcohol- and drug-free housing to hundreds of women and women with children, not to mention the 75+ clean & sober moms who gave birth to healthy babies while residing in the safety of our transitional housing/adult maintenance program.
In October of 2008, VOTC became a California State licensed residential treatment facility for women and women with children. That November, the outpatient treatment program became certified for women and men.
Statistics confirm that treatment is a vital and necessary step in breaking the cycle of addiction and abuse. At Visions each resident is treated with the utmost dignity, respect and compassion – ingredients that are necessary to promote lasting change.
Our staff is dedicated to providing quality individualized care so that our graduates will have a smooth transition back to their families, loved ones and community… alcohol and drug free.
We now have acquired 2 CITY BLOCKS with one cul-de-sac for residential treatment and the another for sober living. We consider our program a faith-based therapeutic community. We have added a Medical Director, MFTs, and interns, along with our certified recovery specialists. We also have pastoral council available to meet the spiritual needs of the clients who request this service.
