Jamaine Atkins


Before being elected as Washtenaw Families Against Narcotics (FAN) Vice-President, Jamaine Atkins dedicated several years of his life to the recovery community of Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti.  While pursuing a Psychology degree at Eastern Michigan University, he simultaneously supported clients of local treatment centers: taking them to daily 12 step meetings, religious services, and personal appointments. It was while allowing former detox clients, who were waitlisted for transitional housing to sleep at his home, that Jamaine decided to launch Any Lengths Sober Living, housing over 150 men since 2018.


Jamaine has continued to engage with those in early stages of recovery as an employee of Home of New Vision and Growth Works Inc. of Wayne County.  He has also managed to balance the mentorship of several participants of Washtenaw County Veterans Treatment Court, conducting addiction research for Wayne State Medical School, and giving continued love and support to those struggling with addiction, while also raising children of his own.  


Jamaine has been an active participant of Washtenaw FAN since its inception. His passion for the recovery community, removing the stigma associated with addiction and educating himself and others in matters related to Substance Abuse Disorder make him a welcome addition to the Board of Washtenaw FAN.
