Treatment works. People recover.

When you, or somebody you love, is struggling with a Substance Use Disorder, don’t wait. Get your questions answered now by calling 906 228-4692.

Our staff are committed to providing residents with a safe, nurturing and stable environment to aid in a positive recovery experience. Our intention is to educate them about their addiction and the effects it has had across all domains of their lives. Clients learn and demonstrate recovery skills so that they do not immediately relapse or continue use in an imminently dangerous manner, once completing treatment and transitioning to a lower level of care. The goals of treatment include the treatment community as a therapeutic agent, promoting abstinence from substance use, and effecting positive change in their lifestyles, attitudes and values. We provide them with the skills necessary to maintain sobriety, engage in healthy relationships, address childhood trauma and increase their awareness of personal responsibilities.

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.

We pride ourselves on providing our clients with a home-like experience during their stays, which includes:

– keeping up with school in our year-round classroom
– social meal times
– walking trails
– Healing Circle
– our enclosed courtyard
– semi-private room (with bathrooms)
– TV lounges, an outdoor basketball court, a greenhouse and more

Parents/guardians can call any time and encouraged to remain in constant contact with the counselors at GLRC. However, we tend to restrict direct contact with your teen for the first week while they get settled.

When the time comes for your teen to come home, we will celebrate their accomplishments as a group recognize their completion of the program with a medallion and finally bid them farewell and encourage them to follow up with their counselors, attend outpatient sessions, and come back to share their stories of success with new residents.

Residential treatment includes:


In addition to individual, group, and family therapy, clients engage in a wide variety of expressive therapies and services including music therapy, equine therapy, recreational therapy, and a variety of art programming and auricular therapy. Each client is matched with an individual counselor or therapist and a treatment plan is created based upon their needs. Clients are presented with many ways to use alternative expression during their stay, including participating in yoga and a monthly program with local photographers.

Educational Services

GLRC provides an year round on-site classroom to enable clients to continue their education while in treatment. The classroom environment is equipped with comfortable desk seating with an abundance of natural light and views of nature. A Certified Special Education Teacher and Certified Teacher’s Aid employed by Marquette Alger Regional Education Services, is assigned to the GLRC classroom as well as a GLRC counselor to allow for sufficient monitoring and individual support.

Medical Services

Comprehensive medical care is provided to residents to ensure they are up to date on medical and dental needs. Upon admission, a medical history and evaluation is completed. Based upon information given, referrals are made to fulfill all client medical/dental needs such a physical exam, dental check-up, immunization review, medication review, eye exam, and other needs are addressed in a timely manner. ASC has an in house physician and nurse, who can attend to client needs throughout the week, in a private and discreet manner. Case consultation is provided to clinical staff to ensure medical needs are effectively addressed throughout treatment. Health issues such as withdrawal, pregnancy, medication management or unexpected illness or injury are able to be managed in a safe and effective manner. ASC also maintains a close working relationship with medical specialists, to address the diverse needs of the adolescent population.

Service Learning

Each week, individuals in the residential program take part in community service learning projects. Projects range from working with senior citizens with special needs, building community gardens, reading to children in local day care centers, and more.
