Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The biggest problem is the negative outlook on addiction as a whole. Our community has gotten better about speaking up about addiction and recovery, but there is still so much work to be done. It is a proven fact that peer to peer recovery support services saves lives. Our data shows that we are reducing that negative outlook and helping a lot of humans. Our mission is to keep fighting and keeping the authentic peer to peer recovery services in our area.

Housing Program

The McShin Foundation offers housing by having nearly 115 beds in twelve houses for individuals in various stages of recovery.  Transportation to and from our program facility at 2300 Dumbarton Road is provided by company vehicles, peer leaders, and volunteers.  The houses are segregated by gender.  Those who come to McShin for housing have usually exhausted all of their resources, and we work to help them get their lives back. Housing is paramount for the first thirty days of recovery as it is during this critical period when the greatest inroads can be made into building a recovery foundation, especially for those with a history of relapse. Most individuals need a far lengthier stay to achieve the road to recovery and look to McShin to facilitate and provide the support necessary for their continued sobriety. They will have access to our staff that are all in recovery from addiction themselves, our recovery center, and our daily multiple pathways for recovery groups.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To continue to help those with addiction and their families. The need for recovery support services is really prevalent in our community and across the nation. McShin's impact has saved thousands thus far since opening in 2004. Our main goal is to still help people the day they ask for it. We hope to put an end to overdoses and deaths related to addiction. Also, we maintain existing structure and quality of the Recovery Community Organization. Through this existing program, we are aiming to address common barriers of Substance Use Disorders. As a community, we can do it together!

McShin started with 3 recovery homes, we now have 12 homes for those with addiction. The biggest strategy we have is to keep our services we provide safe, authentic, and real for those that seek our help. We implement programs all the time at McShin when we see a need in the community to fill. Such programs are jail recovery programs, family programming, job training, and regular life skills.

McShin has a great board of directors, staff, and supporters. We provide a program like no other in our area with many services needed for those with addiction. We have 115 recovery beds that can be filled on any day or time of the week for those seeking help. McShin is operated by a 22-person staff and directed by 12-member non-profit Board of Directors, creating a diverse but cohesive community of support. In addition, our 12 recovery residences are each managed by a house leader and assistant house leader, providing increased accountability and stability for our residential participants. These residences are all state and nationally certified recovery residences. All staff members are in recovery, peer leaders and are certified recovery coaches through NAADAC approver Recovery Coach Training Curriculum.

This is our 2019-2020 fiscal year data:

Number of participants assisted in getting SNAP Benefits (Supplemental Assistance Nutrition Program) – 122
Numbers of participants assisted in getting Medicaid – 98
457 participants for the year, 349 new participants in our housing
192 Program participants in our program housing

Number of Virginia Recovery & Re-entry Participants through SAMHSA grant – 26
Recovery Coach Sessions: 1,255
