Call (906) 228-9696 to speak to a person about GLRC’s Detox Services. The result of a collaboration with local hospitals and the Superior Health Foundation, Great Lakes Recovery Centers offers facilities in both Marquette and Sault Ste. Marie for clients, experiencing “sub-acute detox”, to reside for a shortened time frame. Sub-acute detoxification refers to clients who are experiencing intoxication or withdrawal symptoms that are severe enough to cause impairment, but are not so severe that they require medical attention. Here they have access to shelter, supervision and support until their symptoms subside.

Great Lakes Recovery Centers works with local hospital emergency departments to provide screenings for patients who have been admitted to the ER and may be suffering from a mental health disorder. When ER personnel identify a patient who is exhibiting symptoms of a mental health disorder, they contact the on-call GLRC clinician who screens the patient while they are still in the ER. The GLRC clinician can then determine the level of mental health care that the patient needs. Call (906) 228-9696 for more information.

The In-Home Treatment Team (IHTT) is a innovative solution focused program that is designed to support Substance Use Disorder clients as they transition from a higher level of care to a more independent setting. In a medical setting there is often a necessary requirement that post treatment for surgery there is a ‘follow up’ to ensure that the person is stabilized at home. The hope of the IHTT is to provide stabilization to Substance Use Disorder clients so that they can engage with the next level of care that they need to maintain sobriety.

Many clients complete residential treatment successfully, only to be reintroduced to the same environment that acted as a triggering agent. For some individuals, this return to their home can cause relapse, and in turn a readmission into a local community program. This places an unnecessary burden upon clients and the programs serving them. The IHTT program focuses on disrupting this cycle of readmission, by wrapping the client in needed community supports and working on specific goals, all while in their own home.

Funding for this program is provided by a grant received from the Superior Health Foundation.
