We work with participants from throughout northern Michigan and beyond to stop the progression of their alcohol abuse and substance abuse and help them begin their own personal rehabilitation and recovery program. Participants reach these goals by:
  • Gaining a higher awareness of alcohol abuse and drug dependency
  • Developing personal insights into the process and progression of their disease
  • Understanding the relationship between their disease and other life problems, including family relationships
  • Understanding the alcohol relapse, drug relapse, and rehabilitation process and increasing the motivation for positive change
  • Establishing a plan for ongoing rehabilitation and recovery after completing the program.

An individual, family member, or physician can make referrals to this outpatient drug treatment and outpatient alcohol treatment program. Referrals also come through the workplace, clergy, the judicial system, and other helping professionals in northern Michigan and beyond, from Brethren and Kalkaska to Grand Rapids and Holland. Payment program fees and financial arrangements will be discussed during the admission process. We accept most insurance companies, private payments, and Medicaid. State funding for the uninsured also may be available.
