Gray Wolf Ranch’s ‘Team Mom’ & Chef Extraordinaire

Executive Chef Kelly Bell came to Gray Wolf Ranch nine years ago with an extensive background in the restaurant industry. “I’ve been cooking for almost 30 years, and I love it, but I love these guys even more,” she says.

Kelly, who views every meal as far more than “just food,” believes the young men she serves deserve to eat well. “Nutrition is crucial in early recovery. These guys have totally trashed their bodies, and they need to be well-fed,” she said. “I see mealtimes and snacks as opportunities to connect with the guys while keeping them nourished and providing what their bodies need to heal.”

Today, family involvement and family healing have become hallmarks of recovery success for Gray Wolf residents working hard to build new lives without substance misuse.

“When a client is admitted,” says Nicole, “I call the family and introduce myself. I explain that they, too, need support and counseling while their son is in treatment. My job is to bring them alongside residents and inform them about our customized family workshops and webinars so that they can participate in recovery at the same time as their loved one.”
