CARE of Southeastern Michigan connects individuals, families, and organizations with whole communities of people in recovery.
Community Based Recovery
Substance abuse—from alcohol to prescription drugs—has become an everyday tragedy for Michigan families. The health, work, and personal challenges that individuals face as they seek assistance can seem enormous. For many people, the idea of long-term treatment—or even just taking that initial leap—is simply overwhelming.
But no one has to do this alone. CARE of Southeastern Michigan connects individuals, families, and organizations with whole communities of people in recovery. We match people seeking recovery with a CARE-certified Peer Recovery Coach—someone who has been there, and will stick with them on a long-term basis, providing ongoing recovery support as that person transitions through different levels of treatment.
CARE Community Recovery Services
In a given year thousands of people are referred to CARE’s community recovery programs. Our Recovery United team matches each person seeking support with an individual Peer Recovery Coach. Every certified peer recovery coach has at least three years in long-term recovery, and has undergone extensive training on addiction recovery, assessment, and motivational interviewing techniques. Additionally, they are intimately familiar with the resources available to those struggling with substance misuse and abuse.
We understand that there are multiple paths to recovery—and that many individuals relapse and then re-engage multiple times before finding their path. Our coaches capitalize on their own lived experience and struggles to authentically and persuasively promote harm-reduction practices, connect individuals to the wrap-around support services they need, and help them formulate and act on their own individual recovery plan. This might include traditional 12-step programs, medication-assisted treatment, faith-based programs—or something completely different. What matters is that each coach is absolutely committed to the individual path to recovery a person has chosen. We never give up.
