Recovery Specialists work in partnership with residents acting as a helping hand in accessing resources. Recovery Specialists work together with individuals and families to assess their needs, secure assistance, and achieve their goals.
At MCLTRG we have a limited number of case managers on staff but can place you in touch with affiliate organizations if you are still in need of a case manager.
If you need assistance in your recovery and have not been able to access resources through other channels please call 848-206-2554.
