July-August 2019 Outreach Mariners Inn
For more than ninety years, Mariners Inn has served as an anchor for those struggling to navigate the treacherous waters of homelessness and substance abuse through a wide range of social service pro-grams that achieve the best possible outcomes for adults, families, and youth affected by addiction. As stat-ed on their program materials, Recovery is Real . . . and Begins at Mariner’s Inn.
Founded in 1925 by the Episcopal Diocese of Michigan, Mariners Inn is a nationally acclaimed, li-censed, full-service treatment center providing 24-hour, residential, substance abuse treatment for adult, homeless men of Southeastern Michigan, in a professional, compassionate, therapeutic environment. It is licensed through the Office of Substance Abuse Services for the State of Michigan Department of Public Health and accredited by the Commission for the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). The Mayor's Office has cited the Inn as one of Detroit's model programs.
