Established in 1985, the Matt Talbot Center (MTC) is a recovery program and treatment center for the addicted, the homeless and mentally ill. Located in Seattle’s Belltown neighborhood, the Matt Talbot Center offers hope, services and support to individuals ready to commit to their recovery with an intensive clinical outpatient treatment program offered in a Christian context. Supervised by a Certified Chemical Dependency Counselor (CDCIII), this recovery and relapse prevention program addresses the physiology, psychology, and sociology of addiction.
