Second Chance Recovery House Program, Inc

Men's Transitional Housing

Welcome Home! 

Second Chance Recovery House is a MARR certified 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.

Some of us know someone or have witnessed a family member 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. But what’s next? They may face this dilemma with some sobriety: they stopped doing what worked in the beginning, removed themselves from like-minded people (maybe even thinking they didn't have a problem) to find that they only did a 360 winding up in the same dilemma. They realize they have no control of their usage. Without continuous support and accountability, the disease WILL return. Every. Single. Time. Without it, we rationalize old behaviors not knowing that it will lead us back into isolation, drinking and drug use. 

We learn that it’s OK to not know everything and become teachable. 

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. There are challenging obstacles in recovery that may require months of presented solutions and emotional support.

About Us

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.
