Mariners Inn is looking for a tutor!

Recovery from drug abuse encompasses more than just abstinence from drugs and alcohol.

Mariners Inn is looking for a volunteer tutor to work with the gentleman 3-4 days a week on basic math, reading, writing, history, and science.  Hours and days are flexible.  The right person should have experience and/or education in the area of adult education and be extremely patient.

Hello, my name is Harvey Pollard.  This is the story of what my life was like prior to Mariners Inn, what I’ve done since I’ve been a client at Mariners, and what Mariners has helped me with during my stay.  Become I came into Mariners Inn my life was completely unmanageable.  My family couldn’t control me and my friends weren’t really friends unless our friendship involved doing something doing something negative and unnecessary.  I started smoking marijuana, taking prescription medications, and drinking alcohol as a minor.  I loved the feeling of being high all the time; it helped me to e

Consumer Spotlight - David Wright

Substance abuse began at an early age for David Wright. At 14 he started drinking and smoking marijuana, by 16 David had dropped out of school, and by 19 he was using on a regular basis.  Shortly thereafter, he was arrested for transporting marijuana from Las Vegas to Detroit.  By now he felt completely beaten down.  He was court ordered to do 90-days of residential treatment; which is when he first discovered Mariners Inn in 1998.  He completed the program successfully and believed that he had the foundation to remain clean and sober.  Unfortunately, he was unable to go it alone.

Mariner’s Inn mosaics, peace by piece via The Detroit Hub

By: Ashley Hennen

A mosaic that’s remniscent of Van Gogh’s Starry Night hangs in the lobby of Mariners Inn, the Cass Corridor shelter and treatment center for homeless men.
