Treatment Works –

Dec. 18, 2018 – When Adamovic was just 14 years old, she became addicted to drugs and that led her to a life in and out of jail. “The drugs felt good. They made everything feel good. From the first time I did drugs, I thought I wanted them for the rest of my life. I never wanted to be without them again,” Adamovic said. She felt that way until she met Carla Grantt, the founder and CEO of Mary’s House of Restoration in Little Rock. “I saw a light bulb go on and she said, ‘I want to come to Mary’s House,’” Grantt said about Adamovic. Mary’s House is a transitional living home for women suffering from the disease of addiction. Grantt started it after she, too, suffered from the disease of addiction. Grantt said she lived addicted to drugs for two decades before finding help at the Friendship House in Kansas City. She has now based her program’s model off of the Friendship House. Women who are drug and alcohol addicts can live at Mary’s House. The facility is also equipped to house at least two women with children at a time. Carrie Truett said Mary’s House worked for her. “I was very broken, hopeless and I needed somebody,” Truett said. She came to Mary’s House after doing time in jail. “The last time that I was incarcerated, I lost my daughter to foster care for some bad choices that I made,” she said. “It [drugs] finally took its toll when it took my daughter.”
