Men's Residential Center: Alcohol and Drug Treatment
Men's Residential Center is a drug and alcohol treatment facility for men referred by the criminal justice system.
The men residing in the 52-bed facility enter voluntarily after being referred from the Multnomah County criminal justice system. Most entering have never known lives without crime, and many have used alcohol and drugs from the early ages of ten or twelve.
During six months of intensive, tightly structured treatment, the MRC counselors develop a therapeutic relationship with the men. An additional six months of non-residency continuing care is also offered.
The MRC counselors and staff members develop a therapeutic relationship with the men, becoming role models. In group and individual counseling sessions, they discuss the causes of their addictions and criminal behavior, learn how to monitor their own thought processes in order to recognize and prevent relapses, and they practice anger and stress management, as well as communication and living skills.
