Midwest Recovery Centers

Midwest Recovery Centers‘ Extended Care Program addresses drug and alcohol addiction and many of the disorders associated with it. Their team is trained to recognize signs of trauma, eating disorders, PTSD, physical and sexual abuse, and a variety of other hardships that often cause an addict to remain addicted.

“Drug and alcohol abuse are life-threatening illnesses that can eventually kill you and harm everyone you love,” said Jeff Howard, CEO of Midwest Recovery Centers. “There’s no cure for it, but we can help you find a new way to live.”

Many MRC staff members have personal experience with addiction and are actively involved in 12-step programs. This key component ensures they have empathy and compassion for those they work with and helps MRC clients experience a greater level of success.

Phase II

Phase 2 is available for up to 6 months after phase 1. Transition into this phase is based on many factors and is evaluated individually by the clinical team. Clients are encouraged to seek employment and begin contributing to their own living expenses during this time. Transportation to and from the counseling center in Martin City and to 12-step meetings is provided and two UA tests are required each week.


Remaining engaged in support throughout the first year of recovery greatly improves a person’s chances of long-term success so individuals are strongly encouraged to remain involved as much as possible to prevent relapse. One 90-minute group therapy meeting and one UA test are required each week. Aftercare support is available for up to one year after Phase II has been completed.

Family Program

Having an addicted loved one can cause a considerable amount of emotional turmoil within the family. Midwest Recovery Centers prepare families for common obstacles associated with early recovery and give them the tools needed to respond to the struggles of sobriety. Learn more about how to support a loved one in recovery.

Outpatient Services

Outpatient treatment offers weekly co-ed support meetings for men and women who cannot attend an inpatient program, or have completed a program and need additional support. Clients who’ve established a foundation of recovery tools and resources for sober living meet for 90-minutes two nights weekly and are required to submit a UA test twice weekly.

They meet for three hours, three nights each week for approximately 8 weeks, and a UA test is required 2-3 times each week. One individual therapy session each week is also required.
