Ross B. came into Mariners without even really knowing what the place was about. Ross had just arrived in Detroit after hitchhiking from Florida. He was walking around aimlessly with nowhere to go when someone recommended Mariners Inn to him. Ross came in and entered our RYPP program where he stayed for 6 months in our treatment program. While in treatment Ross completed his GED, discovered a passion for painting, began to establish himself as an artist, and received dental services that resulted in a new set of teeth. Today, Ross is in MER, training for employment, and continuing to pursue his love of art.
