We offer a cognitive behavioral therapy model to identify thoughts and behaviors that reinforce substance use disorders and provide the tools necessary to change them. We also provide dual-diagnosis services for clients struggling with both chemical dependence and mental health issues. Clients are referred to our programs by a broad spectrum of concerned members of the community which include the criminal justice system through the State Department of Corrections, federal circuit and district courts, friends, family, employers, and community service agencies and hospitals.
Our staff includes counselors, social workers, and mental health professionals, all licensed by the State of Michigan, that specialize in substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders. Additionally, medical care professionals, non-medical aides, mentors, volunteers and other distinguished members of the community will be on board to share their expertise in various areas related to the recovery process.
