RIVERSIDE, Calif. - May 13, 2019 - PRLog -- MFI Recovery Centers has named Rita Pacheco as the new Program Outreach Manager. She plans MFI-sponsored events and connects with community organizers to determine which Riverside-area outreaches to attend, so she can talk with community members and explain the many resources that MFI offers. Setting up and manning event booths alongside other MFI staffers, (sometimes including new CEO Melinda Drake), Rita is busier than ever in May. Numerous festivals and events across Riverside County celebrate National Mental Health Month.

"MFI is known in the community for excellent substance abuse and detox programs. But we offer so much more," she explains."People often feel embarrassed that they struggle with mental health. But they shouldn't because they are not alone. And we can help!"

Since assuming the mantle, Rita has coordinated five mental-health-related events in Riverside, Hemet, Perris, Temecula, and Lake Elsinore. Her goal is to be a resource to the community and help minimize hindrances to treatment.

"The easier we make it for someone to get help, the more likely they are to seek counseling or check into detox. The bottom line is we don't want anyone to have to wait for treatment. If you need help, we want to provide it."

At a recent event, Rita spoke with a young man who first approached the MFI booth to get a piece of candy. He started asking questions and eventually shared that his brother uses drugs. I was glad that he asked for a business card because it could be a new start for his family.

"I related to him because both of my parents were addicts. Addiction separated me from my five siblings. And I struggled with addiction too. I've been clean for 12-1/2 years. I am passionate about helping people get the help they need."

If you would like Rita to man a booth at your event, please contact her at MFI Recovery Center (951) 683-6596 or visit
