Every Member of Our Staff Cares About Your Success
Why does our staff care so much? It’s because many of them have been in your shoes. Many of our staff are in recovery and know firsthand the joy you will experience when you break your dependence on drugs and alcohol.
I am in recovery myself and was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio, and returned to Toledo late in my 20’s. I jumped headfirst into sobriety and recovery, and the progress I have seen at the Midwest facilities keeps me coming back every day, eager to do more and help more people. The difference between Midwest and a lot of other facilities is our abstinence-based program. We believe abstinence and participation in a recovery support system, like the 12-step model, will provide results. The other thing that stands out about our facility is our philosophy to help everyone that calls us to find the right resources. If we cannot accommodate potential clients, we will try our hardest to find a place for them within another facility or organization. Success in recovery is very much about accountability. Every individual is responsible for holding themselves accountable, but we also make sure that they know that we expect them to be held accountable to us as well.

Operations Manager – MDC
I am passionate about my own recovery. Recovery has awarded me the opportunity to find joy, passion, and value in all the treasures life has to offer. My goals at work are to be the best TruHealing facility ever. I love seeing people discover a
new way of life and how recovery reverberates through the lives of everyone who meets them.
I love Midwest Centers because we have a great comradery that is appealing to all the staff here as well as our clients. At the end of the day, I know I can go home, and I have made a difference in the community.

Morgan Cynthia Fair, MSW, LSW
Director of Clinical Programming of the Detoxification and Residential Treatment Centers
My favorite part of my job is empowering clients to be the best version of themselves they can be! My passion for this field grew during my internship with this company; afterward, I knew I didn’t want to leave. Watching people enter the
detoxification process and seeing them progress through treatment is such a beautiful process. Watching clients be vulnerable with themselves, their peers, and their families is inspirational. I am not in recovery myself, but I have family members
that struggle with addiction. Giving back to the community and working to end the stigma towards addiction and mental health are what motivate me to continue working in this field.
I assist in developing day-to-day programming for the detoxification and residential treatment centers. I help manage the therapists and case managers. I work to ensure our clients learn while also having some sober fun! What sets us apart from
other treatment centers is that we have a blended group of employees who are in recovery as well as not in recovery. We focus on empowering clients and assisting them in building a new sober life. We don’t focus on the negative aspects of
addiction; we encourage positive, healthy outlooks on life.
If you are hesitant to reach out for help, please don’t wait. We have created a judgment-free atmosphere to ensure that you grow in your recovery. We focus not only on the individual client but also on their family through our outreach program. We
teach positive coping skills through a multitude of treatment modalities and tailor our treatment to individual needs. Always remember you are worthy and deserving of a sober life!

Justin Joseph Ochmanek
Director of Operations
My passion is to give back to clients like me. I was addicted to heroin, crack-cocaine, and alcohol for 14 and a half years. I was constantly in and out of jail and never able to stay sober. I found recovery through treatment. I wanted to help others like me overcome their addictions, see that life can be better, and realize that there is no reason to stay hopeless. I got sober on June 10th, 2015. Since I got clean, I have been able to turn my life around from homelessness to success and happiness.
I oversee the daily operations of all our inpatient facilities. I manage the staff, make sure client care is at a premium, and ensure the overall upkeep of the facilities and staff is at the highest level. My favorite part of the job is seeing clients who come in broken and hopeless start to show signs of life and hope while in our care. The turnaround you see in a client from detox to completion of our 30-day inpatient program is rewarding. What sets Midwest Centers apart from other treatment centers is the culture, the cleanliness of our facilities, and the relatability between clients and staff. Many staff are recovering addicts themselves and understand what clients are going through. This is not the same with other facilities. The overall love and caring culture for the clients stands out.
I have a passion and drive to help every client who enters our care, no matter if it’s the first time or the fifth time. I understand each and every client’s situation and am never too busy to have a conversation and assist. I have a passion for taking away as much pain as possible with every individual that enters our facilities, hoping they never have to go back to what got them in the doors in the first place. I never forget where I came from, and never look down on another individual struggling.
Justin Ochmanek is the Director of Operations for Midwest Centers. He attended West Virginia Tech Business and oversees the daily operations of all inpatient facilities.
My job is assisting clients with their aftercare planning. I also help clients with case management services. My passion for working in this field is in guiding others through their recovery journeys. Ever since I was little, I knew I wanted to help others, but did not know how. When I experienced family members struggling with addiction, I knew this was my calling. It is so wonderous to be able to spread hope and positivity in the community. I take advantage of the time I get with clients and really try to understand their story and get to know them so we can produce an individualized aftercare treatment plan that works best for them.
The most rewarding part of my job is seeing client’s growth. It is amazing to see the change clients experience from day one of their detoxification to the end of their residential stay. Witnessing clients rediscover themselves is beautiful. Midwest Centers stands out because of our amazing staff. We always work together, hold each other accountable, and produce innovative ideas to ensure that our clients receive the best care that they deserve. The most rewarding part is seeing clients continue treatment at our 30-day inpatient program and end up completing 180 days (about 6 months).

Clinical Therapist – Midwest Centers
I have an older brother who is in recovery, he initially made me passionate about this field. Since working in Substance Use Recovery for almost 8 years, I am passionate about helping others find joy in life again. I want to help client’s see their worth and how amazing life can be without drugs or alcohol.
I love working at Midwest Centers because of the staff. Every staff member here genuinely cares and wants what is best for every client. The staff are supportive of each other and have each other’s backs. I love that we hire people in recovery and past clients. The most rewarding part of working here is seeing the clients make the necessary changes to improve their life. Having them call or come back and share things they have gained in recovery, come back and work with us, is a beautiful thing to see.

Operations Manager – Midwest Detox Center
I make sure that the day-to-day functions of the building flow properly to ensure the best client care and ensure the work environment is healthy and appropriate to keep staff and client satisfaction at its full potential. My motivation to work in this field stems from wanting to help others, and people struggling in my community. I am driven to do what I do because of my own personal history with substance abuse, and subsequent recovery and truly enjoy helping our clients recover from addiction as I have. I believe that I can utilize my past and present self to plant seeds of recovery in the minds of others.
My goal at Midwest Centers is to provide accurate and individualized care for all clients to be certain that they are on the path to recovery. We stand out because of our dedicated staff members. Our treatment and our continuing care are centered around the individual. The staff works as a team to make sure that each client feels secure, welcomed, and is in a safe environment. The most rewarding part of working at this location is watching clients start their journey of recovery.
