Teri has hope for recovery and believes that good things follow after that first step. Teri rolled coins to start a nationally franchised company, but few knew that the founder and CEO of The Grocery Game, Inc., suffered for years as addiction ravaged her family. One precious brother was lost to meth related heart failure. Another is now sober after two decades of drug addiction. Tragically in 2016, another family member, a young mother, was jailed for crimes fueled by childhood trauma, abandonment and finally substance abuse. Teri felt she had to do something... The family had been blessed with a beautiful estate home, nestled in ancient oaks, with a resort style pool and park like grounds, the perfect setting for recovery. With her sixteen year business coming to a close, the time was right for Teri to pour herself into her next greatest challenge. With the support of her family and staff of passionate treatment professionals, Oaks of Hope was born. Teri believes that every soul has their own uniquely designed path of life, and that if one should wander off, their path is always still there. Oaks of Hope is founded on hope and love, to help those who struggle with addiction, to fully recover, find their way back, and stay on their path of life. "You're off to Great Places!
