Counseling, Recovery, and Wellness (CReW)
CReW is a state licensed outpatient mental health and substance use treatment provider. They help adults with mental health, substance use, or co-occurring challenges improve their quality of life and achieve stability in recovery. Their team of mental health counselors, chemical dependency counselors, peer specialists, case managers, nursing support, and psychiatric prescribers offer a range of services that may include: comprehensive assessment, individual treatment planning, case management, medication management, therapeutic counseling, group treatment, care coordination, and peer support. Our program members receive onsite case management and addiction recovery services at MTC, and we partner with CReW to provide them with specialized mental health care designed to further support them in their recoveries.
Immanuel Community Services (ICS)
ICS provides 15 of the male members enrolled in our program with safe, sober housing at Immanuel Lutheran Church. These members are able to stay at ICS for the duration of their time in the MTC program and often transition to Traugott Terrace when they are close to completing MTC’s program. ICS also runs a hygiene center and a food bank that many of our members volunteer at.
Traugott Terrace, located above the Matt Talbot Center, is 50 units of term-unlimited, single-occupancy sober housing for people living in recovery. Many of our program members move into Traugott during the third phase of the program or after completion. Traugott offers onsite case management and studios, one-bedroom apartments, and lofts so that residents have their own private space to call home in a supportive, sober community environment.
Blaine, Bread of Life Mission, and Hammond House
Blaine, Bread of Life, and Hammond House are transitional shelters that serve people experiencing homelessness. Blaine and Bread of Life serve men while Hammond House serves women. We reserve beds for our program members at these locations so that they have somewhere safe to stay while they look for more permanent housing. Blaine, Bread of Life, and Hammond House are all harm reduction housing models, which means that there is no drug/alcohol use allowed on the premises but people staying there are not required to be sober.*
*Note that we do require our members to remain sober during their treatment regardless of whether they are staying in harm reduction-based housing, but we will work with a member who is experiencing relapse to get them back on track as opposed to asking them to leave the program.
