Rosary Hall

Founded in 1952, Rosary Hall has been at the forefront of treating alcoholism and drug dependency for more than 65 years.

In fact, its founder, Sister Ignatia Gavin, CSA, worked hand-in-hand with Dr. Robert Smith after he co-founded Alcoholics Anonymous in Akron, Ohio.

Today, Rosary Hall’s innovative efforts continue to be fueled not only by decades of proven experience in treating more than 60,000 men and women, but also by the compassion that is a hallmark of St. Vincent Charity Medical Center.

  • These efforts will allow us to treat 300 more people a year and can this can be started tomorrow
  • Long-term Plan: Expand Rosary Hall to include residential and sober living beds, allowing us to treat an additional 900 people per year

A Disease Like No Other

“Addiction is the single most painful disease that I take care of as a medical doctor. There is no other disease that routinely strips people of all of the basics of being a human being. It strips you of your self-image, your finances and often your legal standing. It leaves you isolated with the drug and with no other meaningful relationships left in your life.

That’s why people get sober, because the disease itself is so painful.

But because of this disease’s wide impact, it requires comprehensive treatment. That means resources in facilities and caretakers. To beat it, a community needs holistic expertise in the medical, psychological, social and spiritual disciplines. And the dollars spent here pale in comparison to the human and financial impact of letting this epidemic continue.

Rosary Hall is one of the few organizations that is proven and optimally positioned to deliver the comprehensive approach required to get people into recovery. We just need more resources to impact more lives. And that’s why every dollar really counts.”
