At Mariners Inn, men with a substance use disorder receive the help they need to live sober and reenter society. Residential treatment is often the first step for patients at Mariners Inn, where they participate in a combination of 12-step principles, cognitive behavioral therapy, and motivational interviewing. The program also includes expressive arts and evidence-based alternative therapies. While in residential treatment, patients have the opportunity to pursue a GED or other vocational skills training to help combat some of the societal and financial stressors that may have impacted their decision-making and led to drug or alcohol abuse. Art therapy offers patients a way to express emotion, while financial literacy classes help patients learn how to avoid homelessness and balance a weekly budget.
What patients are saying:
Patients share stories about their time at Mariners Inn and call the program life-saving. Michael H., a program alumnus, shares, “I had hit bottom; my life in shambles. I had given up hope, contemplating suicide. Then, one of the staff members, Curtis B., contacted me right at that critical moment. He told me to come in. At that point, my life was saved…I have six months and two days clean. I’m working every day. I’m in school with a new outlook because of my new perspective on life. I changed my way of thinking, and the director of the program, Miss Lowe, taught me mindfulness meditation exercises to clear my thoughts…I am now in their transitional program. My outlook is bright, free from active addiction. Thank God for Mariners Inn.”
