Ivana Grehovek – Executive Director, Transforming Youth Recovery

Sometimes the most impactful organizations come from a place of  sadness and personal tragedy.  Transforming Youth Recovery is a one of those organizations.

The Stacie Mathewson Foundation creates and brings together innovative and sustainable scholastic recovery communities.

We work with these communities to increase recovery success for students struggling with addiction. We use the real world experiences of students in recovery to educate the public about addiction and recovery and to erase the social stigma that blocks students and their families from seeking help.

In 2013 we created the non-profit charity, Transforming Youth Recovery.

Through this organization, we support educators, parents and community members in helping students in recovery thrive in the fullness of everyday life.

Our vision is to transform youth recovery—one community, one school, one student at a time.


Their website is a treasure trove of useful information and tools to help families and youths dealing with the plaque of addiction.
