As the drug and alcohol epidemic swept through the Mahoning Valley, the need for more quality recovery homes was greater than ever. Adam was convinced he needed to do something. He opened his first recovery home in 2015. To continue to serve those in need Adam and Co-Founder Jason Kmentt founded Broadway Recovery Services and together grew from one house to what we are today.
