VOTC Inc Visions of the Cross
Redding, CA. 96002
Visions of the Cross, Inc. was founded by Steve and Tammy Lucarelli. With first-hand knowledge of the challenges facing people in recovery and the limited community resources available to meet those needs, Steve and Tammy's own recovery journey led them to open Visions' first sober transitional living home in 2001. By 2005, Visions of the Cross, Inc. had grown to 12 sober transitional living homes in the Redding area; adding another 4 homes in 2007. Since opening, Visions has provided alcohol- and drug-free housing for hundreds of men and women including women with children. Over 290 women have given birth to healthy babies while residing in the safety of Vision's perinatal residential program or transitional housing. In October of 2008, Visions added a California State licensed and certified residential treatment facility for womenand women with children. The next month, Visions of the Cross became licensed and certified to provide outpatient treatment to both men and women. Also, Visions received approval as a Drug Medi-Cal outpatient provider. Recognizing a need for an intermediate level of care, the following year Visions created an Adult Maintenance Program (AMP) for both men and women. The AMP combines outpatient treatment for substance use disorders with secure, sober transitional housing; providing important safety and structure for participants. Today, Visions maintains an unique 2.4 acre recovery campus with two suburban-style cul-de-sacs, one for women's substance use disorder residential treatment and the other for sober transitional housing, plus four off-campus sober-living facilities for men. In all, Visions has a capacity to house 160 residents. Our experienced, professional staff includes a Medical Director, a Clinical Supervisor, licensed Therapists and Interns, along with skilled, certified, substance abuse Counselors. For those who request it, Visions of the Cross also has pastoral counselling available to meet the spiritual needs of clients. Looking towards the future, Visions expects to begin accepting clients for its long-awaited, licensed and certified men's residential treatment program in the summer of 2018.
