Merging capital with courage
to solve the addiction crisis

Exclusively developed by Nashville-based M.W. Incarnate Capital, Inc., Incarnate Recovery has 30 years of experience in the addiction recovery field, including successful management of a non-profit residential and intensive outpatient facility.

Together with our network of capital partners and advisors, our sole mission is to create a level playing field for the community-based organizations tirelessly working at a local level. Those who deliver the greatest benefit by providing effective, long-term recovery services to all who urgently need it, regardless of income or circumstance.

By partnering with select facilities to offer advantageous access to capital for expansion — followed by real estate expertise and project management from site selection to construction, interiors, equipment, and more — we can help each scale to meet the increasing demand on their services. It's a humanitarian investment to save millions of lives, and protect the future of our communities and country.
