Kansas City’s Original Full-Service Treatment Center
Midwest Recovery Centers was founded in 2016 by Kevin O’Grady, Geffen Liberman and Jeffrey Howard. Our founders had the goal to provide the best possible substance use disorder treatment in nice facilities with qualified and empathetic staff.
Our team started Midwest Recovery Centers in Kansas City due, in part, to the fact that the city and region were suffering from a lack of treatment services locally. In 2016, Kansas City offered only a few treatment options, mostly consisting of hospitals and small outpatient programs. Midwest Recovery Centers sought to keep the “hometown feel” but expand on the resources that individuals and families who needed treatment could access.
Starting with an approach that was revolutionary to the area, MRC combined outpatient and then partial hospitalization (PHP) with a fully-staffed sober living component, offering our clients the unique ability to remain in professional services for up to—or sometimes even beyond—their first year of recovery!
In 2020, responding again to the needs of the region, as well as overwhelming positive community feedback, MRC opened a freestanding private detox and residential treatment center. This detox and residential center allowed MRC to offer every level of care available to our clients.
From day 1 of detox to day 365 in extended care and everything in between, MRC became the first and, as of November 2022, the only private treatment program in Kansas City to offer every possible level of care on the treatment spectrum.
While offering this full suite of treatment services, MRC has maintained and grown what has always been the most important part of our program: the personalized and caring environment that best provides for our clients and their families.
Our founders still come to work at the office most days. If you ever need or want to speak with them, all you have to do is ask. By building smaller facilities, clients never feel like they are just a number. Care really is personalized here.
If you are looking for treatment for yourself or a loved one, it can be a very scary and emotional time. Luckily, thousands of families have found support, care and a path forward with MRC. If you are ready to take that step, we are here to take it with you, like we have been the past six years (and counting)!
We are Midwest Recovery Centers. Hometown Recovery since 2016!
