Help for Inmates

Since 1985, our program has been helping inmates of the Macomb County Jail with their recovery needs. Once out of the lifestyle, many people start to think about making healthy changes in their lives, and seeking out recovery services is often a part of that process.

All of our services are FREE. Services may be requested directly by inmates. Referrals are accepted from courts, family, friends, as well as other jail or community-based services. If you would like to make a referral to our program, please call us at (586) 307-9570 or contact us here.
