Mitchell to Open Hope Village Treatment Facility

ROOTSTOWN, Ohio – A Warren native and former president of Warren Fabricating and Machining is opening a facility in Rootstown to help individuals and families struggling with drug addiction.

Regina Mitchell, who spent nine years at the helm of Warren Fabricating and Machining, is the CEO and co-owner of Hope Village, which will open April 23.

“I have seen first-hand the consequences the opioid crisis is having on the stability of our workforce, and how it is affecting our small businesses, employers and the ripple effect that means to our communities,” Mitchell said.

Hope Village is offering a recovery model grounded in improving outcomes and serving clients’ individual needs. The agency will offer services to those seeking recovery from addiction and services for their families.

These include comprehensive assessments, case management, intensive outpatient groups, family and individual therapy, after-care and peer support, and Hope Village welcomes clients on medication-assisted therapy for outpatient services.

In an effort to remove barriers to sustained recovery, Hope Village will also work to integrate other community agency services to fill service gaps experienced by those seeking treatment.

Mitchell and her partner, Ted St. John, chief operating officer, bring strong addiction and management expertise to Hope Village.

St. John has managed, directed and helped develop other drug treatment facilities, beginning at Glenbeigh in Rock Creek, then First Step Recovery in Warren and New Day Recovery in Boardman.

“This has been my dream for years to be able to offer an outcomes-based recovery service near my home, for people and their families who are suffering from addiction,” St. John said.

Sara Roberts, a long-time local addiction professional, is serving as the facility’s chief program officer and clinical director. Vicki Pelletier is the clinical supervisor.

“We recognized a huge and growing need in our community and are thrilled to be able to serve residents and families in Northeast Ohio,” Roberts said.

Hope Village will accept clients with Medicaid insurance and self-pay. Additional insurance and payment opportunities will be added.
