Chris came to Mariners Inn with an array of different issues - his alcohol and drug use had spiraled out of control and he had no place to live. Chris had resorted to selling drugs to support his expensive habits; the criminal behavior had gotten so out of control that Chris realized he needed to make some changes with his life.

Chris entered our program in April 2014; from the beginning, he was very engaged in the process of recovery. In July 2014, Chris completed treatment and went on to our transitional housing program where he began working for The Professional Group. He has now worked for over a year as a custodian cleaning offices in downtown Detroit.


Chris recently acquired his own apartment on the west side of Detroit and received a promotion at work. Chris is doing very well for himself and has been in recovery for almost 18 months. Chris states that his time at Mariners Inn taught him how to be a man, how to take care of himself, how to take life more seriously, and how to fully take on all the opportunities life has in store.
