“Beauty is the reflection of looking at oneself in the mirror.” M.E. Black


Our common strength within Turning Leaf Recovery Network's team of professionals is our endless level of commitment. We are very passionate in helping others who find addiction has crossed their paths in life. We are compassionate for the many struggles people face each day as they try to rise above the madness that often surrounds them.

We value the relationships that we have built with the many families and clients that have touched our lives. We hold true to our sound business ethics that guide our way. We are proud to have met so many wonderful clients that have taken that first step and continue to make progress in their fight against addiction.

Our Vision

Our vision for turning leaf recovery network defines our very purpose each day. We hope to continue reaching out across Montana and continue throughout the country.

Once, i was told that we would never end addiction. I replied, "that doesn't mean we are never going to stop trying!" it has become ingrained in individuals every day way of life, often they don't even realize how much their addiction has impacted their life.

Unless or until we work together to end addiction, addiction will continue to be the thread that tears away at our fibers of our lives until there isn't anything left.

Our Story

Every business has a beginning, our story began a long time ago, much like each of yours. Over the years we have had our share of joy and disappointments. We found our calling when given an opportunity to provide services for an inpatient treatment facility.

Our passion led us on a path of helping others struggling with addiction find their way...a path to help put them on the right path. We all have a past...a past that can often help shape our future. Sometimes in life things happen for a reason...at the time you may not like it or understand it...but somehow, someway, GOD does have a purpose for each of us. Sometimes we just don't see it right then.

Don't let your past dictate your future!"


Our dedicated and professional staff at Turning Leaf Recovery Network pride ourselves on achieveing excellence through client satisfaction and providing the highest level of confidentiality to their needs.

Mary Black

Founder & CEO

I spent six great years in the Air Force in Medical Administration. Getting married at a young age then lasting ten years. My life as I knew it ended when his life turned in a different direction and left me alone to carve out a new path in life.

I continued to stay in the medical field. Helping people and pushing paperwork seemed to come naturally. I have more than 25 years working in the medical field providing customer service, management, medical billing and coding and assisting families in need of help, one kind or another.
Often, when you allow yourself to take a breath, taking one day at a time, life's greatest things can happen! I met Kevin in 2003 and we have been married for almost 14 years. I can't remember a time in my life where I have laughed so much. We love to travel, take drives along the countryside and spend time with our great four-legged kids, Max, Cassie and Bailey!

I am very passionate about working with families who are seeking help with addiction. Also, I am very dedicated to the work we are challenged with each day. I believe that if each of us work together, we would be able to help many more families reaching out for help.
As an employer, I am proud of the individuals that work along side me as we continue to place our footprint in others lives we come across. We strive to continue to learn and grow and make changes in our own lives to make them better for the ones that surround us.
