Addiction and Recovery

At Open Door Mission, we support individuals trying to turn their lives around through a residential phased addiction program. Addiction recovery requires healthy relationships and at ODM, we learn to build connections with a network of support that helps life-long recovery take place.
Recovery from alcohol and drug abuse is possible.
