Delivering a Message of Hope
Founded in 2004, The McShin Foundation is Virginia's leading non-profit, full-service Recovery Community Organization (RCO), committed to serving individuals and families in their fight against Substance Use Disorders. While providing the tools for recovering individuals to create positive lifestyles, we aim to spread the word of recovery and educate families, communities, and government regarding SUDs as well as reduce the stigma attached to them. McShin is the only RCO in Virginia accredited by the Council on Accreditation of Peer Recovery Support Services (CAPRSS). We offer a 28-day recovery program, sober living in recovery houses, and partner with leading physicians for drug and alcohol detox.
Remembering Those Lost
McShin's Memorial Garden
We have put together a beautiful new garden in front of our building commemorating those lost to addiction and those lost while in recovery. The Memorial Garden allows for a peaceful and tranquil space to memorialize loved ones with engraved bricks adorning the pathway of the garden. If you have a loved one and you would like their name added to a brick in the garden, please fill out the form on the Memorial Garden page using the button below.
The White Marker Project
Do you know how many Virginian's die each year due to addiction?
Each year, 3,500 Virginians die as a result of Substance Use Disorders and related causes. The McShin Foundation's Marker Project is a mobile movement to honor these lives and bring awareness to the devastation caused by this disease.
"I didn't know if I was going to stay in recovery. I'm so grateful for McShin. I felt like I mattered to the world again. I've managed to stay in recovery for 9 months thanks to McShin. Recovery is not just staying abstinent from drugs, it's a lifestyle. You will have to work hard and it's worth it."
