At MRCI, our focus is on recovery from not only addiction and mental illness, but getting to the root cause(s) and facing past/current trauma(s). We believe in sustainable wellness practices that promote and positively support recovery, no matter the path.
Utilizing SAMHSA’s Eight (8) Dimensions of Wellness and Four (4) Dimensions of Recovery, our programs offer a comprehensive wholistic approach to Recovery that is culturally competent and tailored for Minorities and other underserved populations.
Maintaining a healthy social life while sober is one of the hardest parts of recovery. Alcohol and general substance us has been integrated as a regular part of our social culture in the United States, and continues to expand its reach. Even when it comes to networking, “happy hour” is a regular theme. That leaves us to ask: “What do sober people do for fun?”
MRCI helps to fill this gap by providing safe gathering spaces for those in recovery and their loved ones.
The L.O.T. Ministry
Inspired by the scripture, Matthew 25:35-40, and the fact that addicted and mentally ill persons, more often than not, experience homelessness. The L.O.T. Ministry is a Wholistic Peer Resource Center designed to meet the immediate needs of food and shelter, while providing peer support services to decrease the likelihood of relapse. The L.O.T. Ministry partners with local faith-based and community-based organizations in an effort to help individuals on the street and in re-entry to enter recovery.
UR (Unique Recovery) Support group
Centered around a communal meal, UR Support Group is an intimate social gathering space for support that is not condition or pathway specific. This unique take on the traditional recovery support group, allows for authentic connection, honest conversation and genuinely celebrates all paths to recovery.
