It’s hard to know what to do when a teen that you care for displays symptoms of a substance use disorder. Great Lakes Recovery Centers can help.

Their stay begins with the development of an individualized treatment plan designed to fit their unique circumstances and involves the family when it comes time to make decisions about things like schooling and living situations. The goal is to set your teen up to achieve a successful, life-long recovery.

Treatment includes One-on-one therapy, Group therapy sessions, and additional methods that include activities such as service learning projects and Art Therapy.
Often called “rehab” or “in-patient treatment”, residential substance abuse treatment refers to a short-term (30 day) or long-term (more than 30 day) arrangement, where clients live in a therapeutic environment, alongside other clients, with 24-hour supervision and access to on-site clinicians. The general intent is to provide the tools that will allow clients to cease substance abuse in order to avoid the negative psychological, legal, financial and health consequences. Clients typically suffer from symptoms of dependence on psychoactive substances such as alcohol, prescriptions drugs or various “street drugs” such as heroin, amphetamines or cocaine.


Treatment usually includes:
  • Assessments of physical and mental health, substance abuse and coordination of medical services
  • A designated counselor and individualized treatment plan for each client
  • Individual and Group Therapy Sessions
  • Transition planning (finding stable housing, securing access to follow up care, employment and/or educational services, and other community resources)

Outpatient Services for substance abuse and mental health disorders are a less intensive, but more flexible therapeutic approach to recovery. Typically, it involves meeting regularly with counselors or therapists for group or individual sessions focused on gaining the skills needed to live life in recovery. Most often, clients are referred to outpatient services as a follow-up to residential services and are the first choice for those who need the freedom to continue working or attending school.

"I'm 15 years old and I'm an addict. I've been sober for 73 days. I like it here (at GLRC). The staff is helpful and I've learned a lot about myself; about respecting myself, and learning to love myself. I've also learned how to find good friends that are good for me. I've learned to express myself through art during Art Therapy."
Comments from a 15-year old Youth Residential Services (Youth) client

"I'm a recent graduate from ARS and I just want to express my gratitude. Things are going much better for me and one of the most amazing things is that my son wants to be around me again."

Comments from an Adult Residential Services Client

"I struggled depression and a lifelong addiction to alcohol. I've had my children taken from me; I'm a nurse and I lost my career, I lost my marriage, I've been incarcerated and spent time in various recovery settings."

"When I first came to GLRC, I was desperate. I begged the counselors not to teach me another method to recover, but to help me to PRACTICE the things I know; and that's what they did. The counselors here LIVE recovery, they are inspiring and the holistic (mind, body and soul) approach works well; learning, exercising, working and exploring spirituality distract me from my addiction and give me something positive to focus on."
