Gretna, LA. 70056
After years of struggling with active addiction, Mike Martyn took the step that he knew deep down he had to take if he wanted to live. That first step was to pursue treatment that placed Mike on the path to recovery from addiction. Realizing how treatment had saved him from destruction, Mike committed himself to helping others with a need for recovery. Mike then set out to fulfill his dream of operating and managing a substance use disorder treatment facility that would meet the recovery needs of under served addicts in the Greater New Orleans community. In 1994, Mike incorporated Responsibility House and began offering a Residential Treatment Program for men. Now he could give back to those who, like himself, needed support in a time of crisis and motivation once they'd made the decision to seek treatment.
