The RHP is a Missouri Department of Mental Health certified, NARR certified and 501 (c)(3) Non-Profit Organization dedicated to assisting ex-offenders adjust to the re-entry process by providing them with the outpatient substance use/mental health disorder services, recovery housing, and resources to be successful.
The RHP is here to help ex-offenders discover who they are. We work with our clients to help them find their potential after incarceration. We connect our clients to resources and assist them in finding employment. We assist in making the transition easier by offering counseling and peer services in order to keep our clients from feeling overwhelmed by this process.
The RHP currently operates 15 recovery homes for clients that are dealing with everything from substance use disorders, mental health disorders and are in the reentry process. RHP does not expect people that are struggling to be perfect. We know that addiction and mental health issues are difficult , so we offer alternatives to our clients that are struggling.
The RHP offers treatment for those that are struggling with substance use disorders and mental health disorders. For our housing program clients we offer the treatment as part of the housing program. We do this so that clients do not have to choose between being able to afford treatment or housing. They should be able to get both if it is needed.
The RHP held it's 2nd annual Halloween Party!!! It was a great time for all!!!!
The RHP opened the areas first respite house in September 2022! This is an attempt to curb the number of people that are turned out onto the streets when they are struggling with their substance use disorder. We are working to help the clients and feel that turning them out of a program is not helpful to their continued recovery.
In September 2022, we lost a our former client Byron Burge. Byron always brought a smile to everyone he spoke with. He finished our program but had been battling other health issues which he succumbed to. Byron always reminded us the importance of enjoying this moment. Thank you for being more than a client but a friend to everyone.
It was a great night to say thanks to all of our Managers that make our program successful. We have had a ton of growth and this night should be even bigger next year!!!!
