Midlands Recovery Center




The Midlands Recovery Center is a bridge between treatment and long-term recovery. Whether in crisis, new to recovery, post-relapse or after treatment, we offer peer support and the stability needed for success.




We offer hope, recovery skills, and mental wellness in a supportive and safe environment for people seeking recovery from substance use and co-occurring disorders.




We provide peer-driven support in a safe, non-judgmental environment while allowing our peers to experience and thrive in recovery. We help rebuild relationships, find housing and employment opportunities, offer mental and emotional support, and provide relapse prevention skills.

The Hope Bag Project

Tragically, homelessness and addiction go hand in hand. In many cases, the end result of homelessness is substance abuse, and substance abuse frequently contributes to homelessness. Oftentimes, individuals are ill-equipped to deal with the real issues that face the homeless community and give short term solutions to much deeper, long term problems. Our trained Peer Support Specialists take their lived experience and establish relationships in the community built on trust and mutual respect.


Our Hope Bag initiative is just the first step in this process, but we also know that the first step is the most important one. It allows us to meet people exactly where they are and start a dialogue that ignites lasting change in the community. It lets someone know if they are struggling, there is someone to call. Each bag contains everyday living essentials such as water, snacks, and hygiene products, as well as educational and preventative materials for COVID-19 and a list of community resources.
