More about Recovery Institute of SW MI:
The Recovery Institute of Southwest Michigan is a peer run and peer delivered service organization incorporated as an independent nonprofit in July of 2006. Here recipients of mental health and/or substance abuse services pool their resources to advance wellness and recovery.
At Recovery Institute, support is offered in a personalized way that emphasizes individual choice and self-determination. People make their own headway in the mental health system and in life. We foster recovery through our work and our example. We aim to give hope where there is little or no hope. We spread the word that recovery is not merely a matter of surviving one’s illness, but rather a dynamic and active movement that brings about a meaningful change in lifestyle and habits. As people with lived experience, we believe that recovery is transformational and it is valued by the community and individuals. It brings completeness, happiness and fulfillment, thus satisfying both the needs of the individual and the community.
