Our organization has been serving the tri-county area since 1960, starting as the Alcoholism Information Center and later, the Tri-County Council on Alcoholism and Addictions.
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, Glass House was secured to serve women with residential programs to provide 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 it re-branded to become Mid-Michigan Recovery Services Inc. to ensure the community recognized our dedicated service to all who struggle with substance use disorders, whether alcohol or other drugs. We cooperate with advocates such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Celebrate Recovery, Families Against Narcotics, Capital Area Project VOX and Unite to Face Addiction Michigan.
