This is accomplished by ensuring access to integrated networks of effective and culturally competent holistic health services.

Detroit Recovery Project History

The Detroit Recovery Project Incorporated (DRP) strengthens, rebuilds, and empowers communities affected by drug and alcohol addiction and other under-served populations. DRP supports individuals in identifying and resolving barriers to achieving a healthy and productive drug-free lifestyle. Detroit Recovery Project was birthed by the City of Detroit Bureau of Substance Prevention, Treatment and Recovery and the Partnership for a Drug-Free Detroit. Receiving its nonprofit status in July of 2005, Detroit Recovery Project leveraged existing partnerships throughout the City, State and Federal government to develop a comprehensive menu of substance abuse prevention, treatment and recovery services to individuals exiting substance abuse treatment and providing resources to individuals in long-term recovery.


DRP gradually grew with the needs of the community.

Our mission to empower under served populations and individuals affected by substance abuse addiction has propelled DRP to expand our services to include innovative behavioral health and physical wellness services to individuals residing in the metropolitan Detroit area. As a peer led and peer run organization, DRP has received federal, local and state funding to continue to implement successful programming and has received accolades from around the world. It is the goal of the Detroit Recovery Project to change the trajectory of the lives of individuals who have no hope.
