We are the HOPE that recovery is possible.

We’ve been where you are.

What we stand for 

Hope Valley Recovery is built around a non-judgmental, client-centered approach; where we assist and guide the client as they pave a path to recovery.

We understand that recovery is a multi-dimensional platform that is built around a team atmosphere; however, we also know that it takes YOUR willingness to succeed. Many of our staff members are in recovery and have spent years developing a program that addresses all presenting problems that you might have.

Our goal is to not ONLY treat your substance use disorder and/or mental health disorder, it is to treat ALL presenting problems you bring with you. 

If you don’t have a job, we will train you and assist you in gaining employment. If you don’t have a healthy place to live, we will provide that for you. If you lack some basic life skills, we will teach them to you. If you struggle with social skills, we will assist you in developing them. If you lack the education you need for a better future, we will guide you into a school fit for you.

Our stand to you, the client, is the overwhelming desire to provide you with a wealth of opportunity. We aim to handle all of your presenting problems in-house, developing and transforming you into a responsible and productive citizen with the opportunity and hope for a better future. 

Our culture

The culture of Hope Valley Recovery is built around one word: LOVE. We treat every individual who walks through our doors as a friend, a friend that we HOPE will accept the love and care that we are here to provide.

This showing of care is developed from the recovery-based staff that walks our halls. At one point it was freely given to them and it is now our time to give it to you. 

Through a non-judgmental, client-centered approach we create a safe and therapeutic environment where you, the client, are free to be who you were meant to be.

David Kapp

Founder and Managing Member

David believes that every individual has the prerogative and power to change for the better and deserves the opportunity to do so without judgement.

As owner of Hope Valley Recovery, First Step Recovery, Parkman Recovery, and Travco Behavioral Health, David embodies the ethos of all four companies. His entrepreneurial career is focused around upstarting and operating businesses that enable individuals to feel encouraged and safe in their quest for health, recovery, and total wellness of body, mind, and soul.

David founded First Step Recovery in 2014 along with Kapplands, LLC. Two years later, he acquired Travco Behavioral Health and blended both companies’ operations to create a broad spectrum of support to those in recovery from addiction and/or struggling with mental health. In 2020 David founded Hope Valley Recovery and quickly acquired Parkman Recovery in early 2021.

Andrew Inglis, BS, ACHE

Executive Director

Andrew believes that recovery is built around a multi-fold approach that MUST incorporate a wealth of opportunity to those who seek help. He believes that in addition to providing treatment for drugs, alcohol, and/or mental health, providers MUST deliver opportunity in the form of life skills, education, employment opportunities, and recovery-based social skills. 

Andrew’s passion for delivering high-quality, effective treatment began during his own transformation process. Through mediums of drug treatment and incarceration Andrew saw first-hand what many lacked in their fight for change: Opportunity. As Andrew always states, “It is one thing to change someone’s thinking, but it is another thing to transform their life”.

Once realizing that his passion for helping others was paramount, Andrew educated himself in the field of healthcare by completing his B.S. in Health Sciences at the Ohio State University. In addition, Andrew has obtained A.A. degrees in psychology and business management.

Andrew’s professional career began in 2017 as a discharge coordinator for a treatment center in Columbus, Ohio. He quickly analyzed the environment and realized that more could be done to help those in need. The following year became one of extreme growth for Andrew, he ultimately applied for, and was given, the Executive Director position at the same facility.

The next 18-months were spent rebuilding the program into something that truly helped those looking for a better life. In July of 2020, Andrew left that organization and started full-time with David and Hope Valley Recovery.

Andrew is currently a member of the American College of Healthcare Executives, a Columbus Kiwanis member, a member of the NA recovery community, and an advocate for those seeking a life without the use of drugs and alcohol.

Through his ability to problem solve and lead by example, Andrew has developed into an individual who embodies love, care, compassion, honesty, and responsibility. It is his ultimate goal to transform lives and rebuild the communities that surround him.

Dr. James Johnson, DO, ACOFP, AOAAM

Medical Director

Dr. Johnson believes that recovery is an attainable goal that anyone seeking it can meet. He is a firm believer in the recovery process and works daily to help others realize their goals.

Dr. Johnson started his education at the Ohio State University in 1994, where he received a B.S. in Civil Engineering. Following his undergraduate degree, he enrolled at the Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine and received his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine in June of 2000. The next years of his life were spent completing an internship and residency at Doctors Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, becoming board certified in family medicine in 2003.

Once board-certified, Dr. Johnson opened a private practice where he provided primary care to individuals of all ages. His focus shifted shortly after when he decided that something must be done to help those suffering from addiction. He signed on as an attending physician at a local Psychiatric hospital where he managed the acute withdrawal phase of patient’s treatment, as well as managed their mental health diagnoses.

Dr. Johnson has fifteen years of experience in family medicine and ten years of experience in addiction medicine. He currently still manages his private practice, providing primary care and addiction treatment to the adult population. He is also board certified in Family Medicine by the American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians and in Addiction Medicine by the American Osteopathic Academy of Addiction Medicine.

Dr. Johnson believes that through his education and experience as a trained addiction-based physician, he can bring a wealth of education, care, and comfort to those seeking help at Hope Valley Recovery.

Clinical Director

Mark believes that all individuals hold the capacity to realize freedom from active addiction. Through his client-centered approach to treatment Mark focuses on rebuilding lives by establishing data-driven clinical techniques and compassionate based care.

Already holding a B.S. Degree in Marketing from The Ohio State University and an MBA from Xavier University he was able to enroll in the Clinical Counseling Master’s Program at Ashland University.

Mark’s professional career began as a group therapist for various agencies throughout central Ohio, while at the same time maintaining a private practice of his own.

In 2018 Mark took on a primary therapist role at a facility in Gahanna, Ohio and was quickly promoted to Clinical Director just 4 months later.

Mark is a perfect example of living in recovery. He has been able to transform his own life and can now freely give back to those who are working on doing the same.

 

Courtney Inglis, LCDC II

Utilization review Director

Courtney believes that the only way to truly recover is to have the willingness to do whatever it takes to get sober and stay sober. She believes that willingness, paired with the desire to counteract negative thinking, is the path towards a successful recovery.

Courtney’s path to recovery began shortly after her final attempt at treatment in 2010. She was finally able to address her substance abuse issues and soon began a journey of giving back to others. Her number one goal was to rebuild her life and obtain a job at the very treatment center that helped her.

She enrolled at the Columbus State Community College in 2012 and obtained her associate degree in Social and Human Services two years later. During this time, she completed two internships at drug and alcohol treatment centers and was awarded her CDCA. Courtney was now ready to enter the substance abuse work environment and applied for a Treatment Assistant position at the same facility she received her treatment from.

Courtney began working as a Treatment Assistant two weeks later and excelled ever since. Since 2014 Courtney has worked her way up in the same organization, holding the titles of Treatment Assistant, Lead Treatment Assistant, Utilization Review Coordinator, Billing and Finance Director, and HR Director. Courtney always felt that having a well-rounded view of the treatment environment was her best bet in understanding what environment was most conducive for clients.

Courtney is excited to get back to her passion of Utilization Review and direct client-care. In addition to being the Utilization Review Director at Hope Valley Recovery, Courtney will also lead clinical groups and fitness groups.

Extremely grateful for her own sobriety, Courtney continues to live by the following motto: “If I can save one person from the disease of addiction, I have done my job”.
