Our programs provide a safe, welcoming place to build a foundation for recovery.
The McShin Foundation Difference
Here at The McShin Foundation, we have an authentic peer-oriented social model program. The first thirty days is our most critical period of our recovery. It is at this time we make our greatest inroads in building our recovery foundation. We implement rapid entry into involvement with available pathways to long term successful recovery. We begin to instill a genuine desire in the individual to chase their recovery by the example in which we do recover. By this time, the individual should be well on their way in recovery. Through authentic peer-oriented guidance, the individual has a good understanding of what it takes to recover on a daily basis. The longer the individual stays in an authentic peer-oriented system of care, the greater are their chances at full recovery from their Substance Use Disorder.
I am very grateful for McShin. When I first arrived, I was pregnant and had nowhere else to go. I was able to get some recovery through my pregnancy. Pregnancy was very difficult for me, but recovery and McShin made it easier. If it wasn't for the community and support I found at McShin, I probably would have returned to a life of active addiction. I am grateful for McShin and recovery every day!
Ever since coming to McShin, I have had a completely new outlook on life. It has shown me so many different ways that I can have fun time being clean, and that I don’t ever have to use drugs again. It has shown me the pathway I use for my recovery (which is the program of Narcotics Anonymous). Without the NA program and McShin, I don’t know where I would be at in life. I would probably be in jail or prison. If not that, I would probably be dead! It has given me the opportunity to have a great connection with my family – one that I have not had in many years.
The first day I met a facilitator from the McShin program, and he told me he was a hope dealer, not dope dealer. As he talked, I found myself relating to how he had been in jail and how a peer to peer program helped him. As they came in week after week, I found myself being more and more educated and liked what I heard. Throughout the eight months I was there at RSW, right before my eyes I saw a change so great that it made my heart happy to see this truly works. Within a few months, my life became amazing.
