What to Bring to Treatment

Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) Brochure

Great Lakes Recovery Center’s Adult Residential Services is a barrier-free, fully accredited treatment center serving male and female clients ages eighteen and older. We’ve been offering quality substance use disorder treatment and relapse prevention services since 1973.

GLRC also works closely with the VA to provide homeless veterans with a place to stay. Because homeless veterans suffer from substance use and mental health disorders at such a high rate, our program currently provides space for them in our residential service programs so that they get access to shelter as well as services that they might need.

By design, our single story building looks and feels like a large family home where our clients find warmth, concern, and clinical expertise.

Treatment includes:

● Suggested length of stay is based off of your unique needs and medical necessity
● Comprehensive client assessment, including substance abuse, physical & mental health, and coordination of medical and medication services
● Designated counselor and individualized treatment plan for each client
● Individual and group therapy
● Relapse prevention programming, case management & transition planning services
● Regularly scheduled on-site physician consults
● A full-time medication manager on staff


Individual Treatment Planning

Our counselors begin by helping each client pinpoint important issues related to their addiction and life history. At the same time, clients identify their personal strengths, support systems and other resources they’ll need for a successful, long-term recovery.

By using the gathered information, clients and counselors work in collaboration to develop appropriate, realistic goals for each individual.


Transitional Planning

From the first day of treatment, clients begin to brainstorm about planning for their return home. Our goal is help everyone obtain access to the care and assistance they’ll need for a successful transition back into the community. Transition plans often include areas such as employment, housing, family & social support, follow up substance use disorder counseling, mental health counseling, and medical care.


A Healthier Spirit & Body

At Great Lakes Recovery Centers, we believe that recovery from addiction should address an individual’s body, mind and spirit. While most of our substance use disorder treatment focuses on the mind, we encourage clients to begin to pay attention to the other areas of their lives. Exercise is an essential part of healthy recovery. Clients are able to play volleyball, basketball, horseshoes, hike, or just stroll along Lake Superior, which is two blocks away. Northern Michigan University’s gym, the Superior Dome, and the YMCA are all within walking distance as well. Through a Zonta grant, Great Lakes Recovery Centers also offers a women’s yoga class embedded within the curriculum. In terms of spiritual health, clients are free to attend religious services of their choice during the week.


Coordination of Care

Clients often arrive with serious medical issues. On-site consultations and exams are conducted regularly by our affiliated physicians. Medications, physician’s orders and other health-related issues are supervised by a licensed medication manager.

Self Help Groups

Our program follows and supports the 12 step recovery model, and much of the principles of the 12 steps are weaved into our program. We urge our clients to attend AA and NA meetings both during and after treatment. Our curriculum also includes Smart Recovery groups. Clients are encouraged to find their own path to recovery and what works for them.

Community Involvement

We believe in the healing effects of giving back to the community and helping others, or service work. Our clients participate in a wide variety of civic and charitable activities during treatment.
