Visions of the Cross
Visions is a multi-level social model program that adds a faith-based therapeutic community. We believe that our high success rate is due to the quality of services and expertise we provide for men and women who utilize our services. The success can also be measured by the many different level of care offered; short-term to long-term residential, sober living with outpatient, and aftercare. At VOTC we believe in getting to the core issues of an addictive mind, using both faith-based and evidenced based secular treatment theories. Many personal testimonies and families have found restoration through this balanced approach. Visions of the Cross (VOTC, Inc.) believes in “Giving God the Glory.” and the slogan “We Believe in Miracles.” Known for having a huge support system in the community and a hands-on, non-religious approach, but never denying the power of God to help a person change. This program has quickly become known as a quality treatment provider in the North State.
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 128+ 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 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.
