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.

Join the Fight Against Addiction: Expand Rosary Hall

In 2016, Cuyahoga County lost more than 660 of our own to overdose deaths. That’s one death every 13 hours. This is an epidemic. But this epidemic can end with the help of people like you.

Since 1985, Dr. Ted Parran has treated about 40,000 people with opioid addiction and approximately another 110,000 for alcoholism. His passion and expertise demonstrate why we need more caregivers like him at an expanded Rosary Hall.

Since 1952, Rosary Hall has been at the forward edge of the fight against addiction. When our founder Sister Ignatia Gavin, CSA began this work, much of her focus was on the preeminently abused substance of the day: alcohol. But today, addiction has morphed into a more sophisticated foe. While alcohol, cocaine and other drugs continue to destroy lives, it’s the opioid and heroin epidemic that’s taking lives in record numbers from families, neighborhoods and  communities. What talents are gone forever from the lives that have been lost as a result?

Ending the Epidemic: What You Can Do

As more families are destroyed and our leaders and the media take notice, there are many theories and solutions being brought forward to help stem the tide of this disease. But where should we focus our resources? What is our best weapon against this epidemic?

At Rosary Hall, we know that comprehensive inpatient and outpatient treatment works—because we’ve been developing this approach and restoring patients to recovery for more than 65 years.

That’s why we’ve launched an initiative to expand Rosary Hall. With an expanded treatment capability and through the efforts of partners across our community, together we can help bring an end to this epidemic.

No matter who you are, you can help us end this epidemic in our community. There’s three simple ways you can get into the fight. Three ways to expand Rosary Hall. Three ways to expand the cure. Three ways to end this epidemic.

“I never thought I could get sober. But Sister Ignatia set me right. That was five decades ago. And Rosary Hall has been doing the same for all kinds of people ever since.”
