Our Mission 

To provide substance abuse specific counseling for those seeking to recover from the disease of addiction and live a life of long term recovery.


Our Goals 

Seeking Recovery strives to provide personalized treatment to those seeking substance abuse treatment with appropriate IOP, OP and Relapse Prevention stages of treatment.


Seeking Recovery provides the foundations of recovery through intensive counseling and educational lectures designed to teach about the disease of addiction as well as trauma, anger, irrational thinking, managing your emotions and relapse prevention skills used to maintain one's sobriety. Seeking Recovery provides support for those going through Treatment Court and DHS proceedings.


Seeking Recovery is a Limited Liability Company owned and operated by JoAnn Malone. JoAnn is a 30 year recovering addict whose journey through addiction led her from the streets of New York City, into the United States Navy where she was a Naval Photographer. Understanding there is life after addiction and wanting to make a positive and lasting impact on other addicts, she entered into the University of Maine at Augusta where she majored in Mental Health and Addictions studies while working three jobs and raising two young boys. She graduated with honors and worked in case management, mental health and addiction before going back to get her Masters in Human Services and Nonprofit Administration.

Experiencing the devastation addiction can have on someone's life, she entered into Medicated Assisted Treatment Counseling where she worked as a methadone and Suboxone counselor before coming to Great Falls, Montana.


Seeking Recovery offers substance abuse counseling to all those afflicted with the disease of addiction and helps them find recovery by working through their trauma, abuse and neglect issues, and helps the addict understand the connection between these issues and their current addiction. Seeking Recovery believes that drug addiction is a symptom of a larger problem and that by identifying and resolving the origin of the addiction, only then can recovery take place.


Seeking Recovery hopes to provides mental health services as well as adolescent and family services/programs along with direct access to Medically Assisted Treatment Providers


Seeking Recovery provides services to people ages 18-65 who suffer with the disease of addiction.


Seeking Recovery accepts Medicaid, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, TriCare, Pacific Source, Allegiance, Meritan, Cigna, MT Health CoOp, EBMS, United Healthcare, and Interwest.


Seeking Recovery understands that all businesses use advertising as a strategic tool for promoting their services, yet many fail to provide the correct methods of providing those services to individuals in need. Seeking Recovery understands that even though more employees equal more individuals treated, if the treatment provided is not adequately serving the needs of those who seek it the end result will not matter. It is not the amount of employees providing the treatment; it is the quality of the treatment being provided.


Seeking Recovery understands that there are treatment centers that employ a large number of counselors and can provide multiple services under one roof. However, during the early stages of treatment the individual is vulnerable and may need more in depth and personalized treatment varying in intensity and time. Large agencies have overhead, large financial obligations and are often on a time limit; their profits come from serving as many clients as they can in a set amount of time. Because Seeking Recovery is small, individuals receive the intense and in depth treatment they deserve while not feeling like just another client.


Abstinence from drugs is only part of their recovery. Counseling and education MUST be combined to have a successful outcome. Simply not using drugs is NOT the key to recovery. Applying the basic principles of recovery is only the first step. In group, clients will learn the basic understanding of the Disease Model of Addiction. The following lectures will provide the understanding of the Disease Model of Addiction including but not limited to the neuroscience of addiction, why they crave, relapse and triggers, irrational and criminal thinking and the importance of emotional regulation in early recovery.
