Mid-Michigan Recovery Services Inc. [MMRS] is committed to inspiring hope by providing a safe environment - teaching and modeling healthy lifestyles for all impacted by substance use disorders. We KNOW recovery is possible.
We know because our organization has been serving the community for over a half century and we have close connections with members of the community in long term recovery who were once clients. In fact, we have hired some of them. Our organization believes in diversity of community and strives to ensure that our staff is diverse and culturally understanding.
We understand that every person is unique. Our philosophy is based on a holistic methodology and evidence based practices. Each person requires a personalized approach for substance use treatment and recovery. Our commitment is to approach a treatment plan with each individual; tailoring the plan to goals set with each individual for an effective and personal path to overcoming addiction. We KNOW recovery is possible. We know because our staff is not just a staff committed to service in recovery, but many of us are in long term recovery ourselves. In fact over the years we've hired past clients who are talented, successful and passionate about recovery!
Our organization follows the Recovery Oriented Systems of Care [ROSC] model of service as the foundation for all of our programming. ROSC is simply defined as community-network of services and supports that is coordinated to be person-centered building on the strength and resilience of the individual, families and community to achieve improved health, wellness and quality of life in abstinence for those with or at risk of substance use disorders.
In this commitment MMRS serves as an active affiliate of the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, Ingham Substance Abuse Coalition, Greater Lansing Homeless Resolution Network and Capital Area Project VOX. We also participate in the Power of We Consortium, Recovery Oriented Systems of Care Work group, Families Against Narcotics, are an active affiliate with Capital Area United Way and serve on many committees and work groups to advance healthcare for community members with substance use disorders and co-occurring mental health disorders to ensure that we are collaborative and thoughtful in our work to address the best treatment services, education and advocacy for community members with substance use disorders.
Our organization has been serving the tri-county area since the late 1950’s starting as the Tri-County Council on Alcoholism and actively served as Mid-Michigan's affiliate of National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence from 1967 to 2018.
In 1967 a Halfway House Council was formed to address issues regarding community members who were chronically addicted and homeless. The Holden House was secured to serve men and soon after the Glass House was secured to serve women with residential programs to address provision of safe shelter, life skills training and treatment for substance use disorders. At that time Halfway House Council and Tri-County Council on Alcoholism combined and sought affiliation to become the National Council on Alcoholism’s affiliate in the Lansing Regional Area.
Our organization served under the name of National Council on Alcoholism - Lansing Regional Area Inc. from 1967 to 2016 when the organization re-branded to become Mid-Michigan Recovery Services Inc.we to ensure that the community and regional area recognized our longstanding and dedicated service to all who struggle with substance use disorders whether it is primarily alcohol or other drugs cooperating with advocates such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Celebrate Recovery, Families Against Narcotics, Capital Area Project VOX and Unite to Face Addiction Michigan.
