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.

Sober socials

Maintaining a healthy social life while sober is one of the hardest parts of recovery. Alcohol and general substance use 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 LOT Ministry

Inspired by scripture Matthew 25:35-40, and the fact that addicted and mentally ill persons, more often than not, experience homelessness, The LOT Ministry is a Wholistic (whole-person-centered) Peer Resource Center designed to meet the immediate needs of food and/or shelter, while providing peer support services to reduce the rates of relapse and recidivism. The LOT Ministry collaborates with local faith-based organizations in an effort to help individuals on the street to enter recovery.
