90-day Intensive Residential Treatment Program for alcohol and drug addiction
Midway Recovery Systems

Our History

When a group of Griffin businessmen saw the devastation wrought on lives in our community by this disease almost thirty years ago, they set out to address it. As a result, Midway Recovery Systems was born. Addressing this terrible situation called for each man to make a “venture of Faith,” which remains a cornerstone to the philosophy of Midway to this day. They visited a variety of programs.

Based on this research, the Midway founders realized that letting those who were in the early part of the recovery program live in a recovery-focused environment was crucial. The residential component became the first part of the Midway program and remains the main focus today.
Midway Recovery Systems opened in May 1982 in response to increasing concern about the dual problem of alcohol and drug addiction in our area and the lack of residential supportive facilities for population of citizens.

Located at 119 South Tenth Street in Griffin, Georgia, this attractive facility consists of two well-landscaped and beautifully decorated buildings. Further, basketball, horseshoes, volleyball, and numerous other recreational activities are offered. Over our history, we have treated over 1,200 individuals with residential care, counseling and family intervention.

For most of the graduates of Midway’s residential program, a return to their previous lives was appropriate. For some however, another option was needed. Several years later, Midway expanded to include an “Extended Care House,” where graduates from the 90-day program could stay an additional 18 months.
