Second Chance Recovery House Program, Inc
Men's Transitional Housing - Lansing, Michigan
Second Chance Recovery House is a Transitional Home for people with a Substance Use Disorder. We specialize in many different modes of recovery for addicts and alcoholics. Most importantly, we have experienced addiction ourselves and we have FOUND A WAY OUT by using the 12-Step program. Yes, it WORKS! Thousands of people are clean and sober today and continue to stay stopped. Meet some Alumni from SCRH.
What Happens: Some of us have witnessed a family member, friend or coworker with an addiction problem. Sadly, this disease is FATAL and if left untreated, the addiction stops at nothing. Luckily, some do receive detox or a 14-day treatment or maybe longer. What do we do now?
What’s Next: Without continuous SUPPORT and ACCOUNTABILITY, the disease WILL return. Every. Single. Time. This disease is called ADDICTION. We start rationalizing old behaviors not knowing that it will lead us back into a familiar isolation. Then, we return back to drinking or drug use thinking that is the solution to our diseased thinking.
The Help You Need: This disease is treatable but incurable. Our leaders at SCRH can recognize addictive behaviors BEFORE a potential relapse and will be there to GUIDE you. Some individuals don’t even realize these old behaviors are happening. By your side, you will have a FUN fellowship of like-minded people, Sponsors, sober friends you will meet, sober and clean FUN and events to go to. That’s why we are here! You now have a CHOICE and a new way to live. You might even hear yourselves laugh for the first time in years!
The Solution: Our biggest defense against relapse or the thinking that comes with this illness is BUILDING A FOUNDATION with people in recovery. Knowing "what to do" is a valuable tool. We find for ourselves who our spiritual guide is to heal our brokenness. The 12-Step of Recovery leads us to FREEDOM of active addiction and our Spiritual Guide stays with us ALWAYS.

We provide safe, sober, 12-Step based housing for men who suffer from addiction/alcoholism. We are able to accommodate 19 participants in 2 single family homes and 1 two-unit house. We are located in Lansing, Michigan near Frandor Shopping Center and a short walk to Alano Club East.
Residents coexist with each other in recovery to learn: resilience practices, relationship boundaries, trust building, continuity of presence, and the therapeutic value of sharing life's struggles and triumphs with one another. Due to the anti-social characteristics of this disease, bonding renews the broken spirit. At Second Chances, we learn how to laugh again.
Our Goal is to offer behavioral skills and supportive companionship through facilitated group peer interaction and individualized recovery planning
Established in December 2012, we committed our lives to share our addiction story and a recovery practice that has proven successful outcomes in our lives and others. We will continue to harbor a special group of people whose life depends on unity to survive.
