You are not alone
The National Institute on Drug Abuse suggests that approximately half of all individuals serving a prison sentence abuse or are addicted to drugs.

By initiating treatment for substance use while a person is still incarcerated and continuing to offer services as they reintegrate into the community, we can increase the likelihood of positive treatment outcomes.

Through our Recovery United Corrections Division, CARE of Southeastern Michigan works with individuals who have a history of substance abuse, supporting them as they reintegrate into their communities. We embrace a comprehensive public-health approach with coordinating care and additional resources. By connecting them with both treatment professionals and the recovery community, we find that these individuals are much more successful in directly addressing their substance use and mental health issues.
