An organization, predominantly serving the African American community, that supports recovery by providing access to integrated networks of culturally competent holistic services
The Detroit Recovery Project (DRP) is a private, non-profit organization that supports individuals in identifying and resolving barriers to achieving a healthy and productive lifestyle in recovery. DRP does this through:
- recovery support services, such as mutual aid groups, housing and employment assistance, and recovery coaching
- providing social support and family support
- health education
- life skills training
DRP aims to strengthen, rebuild, and empower under-served communities affected by substance use disorders and predominantly serves blacks, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) in an urban area. There is a focus on racial equity and justice. The organization evolved out of the Detroit Recovery Project Coalition, initially a group of parents in recovery that were concerned about youth substance use and later was joined by a variety of community, local, and state-level agencies. Therefore, DRP also has a focus on prevention.
