What Makes Us Different
Onsite Substance Abuse Testing focuses on what’s truly important – appropriate licensing, quality of care, follow-up services and staff credentials.
Accreditation & Licensing
Our treatment center is fully licensed and insured by the State of Michigan, and our programs are run by licensed, well-trained mental health professionals and addiction specialists.
Program Quality & Effectiveness
Look for treatment centers with some statistics on their success rates, preferably from an objective outside agency to ensure proper care.
We offer discharge plans and post-care treatment to give you your best chance at success, as well as provide referrals to other various recovery services and support groups.
You may need the help of a professionally trained clinician or counselor when the problems and situations in your life have exceeded your ability to cope in a healthy and rational sense. Therapy sessions can benefit even otherwise healthy individuals by helping them work through stress or emotional roadblocks in an organized and safe manner. We now accept insurance, and all of our offices are Medicaid Providers.
If you or anyone you know is considering or attempting suicide, immediately call emergency services or a mental health hotline. In most cases, individuals who are considering suicide or are self-harming will need professional mental health counseling.
If you or someone you care about is suffering from symptoms of depression, counseling is often a useful and important source of therapy. First determine if you are actually experiencing symptoms of depression, and then seek counseling after discussing the possibility with your health professional.
Dramatic mood swings may be another indication that counseling may be useful for mental health. Beyond normal moodiness during puberty, pregnancy, menopause, or other stressful life events, serious mood swings may indicate that assistance from a mental health professional in the form of counseling may be helpful.
Individuals suffering from addiction require professional help. In many cases, mental health counseling is an essential part of the rehabilitation process. Addiction has strong ties to mental health, and addicts often experience comorbidities, such as depression.
Traumatic experiences such as car accidents, child abuse, sexual assault, loss of a loved one or recent loss of a job are among the overwhelming situations many people have difficulty managing without the assistance of a mental health counselor. If you are having difficulty coping with a traumatic experience, whenever it may have occurred, request the assistance of a mental health professional in healing from the event.
Certain interpersonal relationships may benefit from mental health counseling. A variety of problems with any individual in the family or partnership may be amenable to a group or individual counseling.
In many cases, primary care physicians or nurses can evaluate individuals to determine whether counseling may be beneficial. If a problem is not amenable to therapy, health professionals may offer medical treatment. Often times, mental health conditions are treated with a combination of medical and psychiatric assistance.
Counseling will end when you have reached the goals that brought you to counseling in the first place. It does not mean that you are going to be free from all problems and concerns, or that your life will go smoothly from this point on. It may mean that with the assistance of counseling, you have developed ways of making peace with some things and accepting them as they are and you have developed strategies for changing things that are within your power to change.
There are sometimes when you may decide that, although continued counseling may be helpful, it is not the necessity it once was and you can no longer justify the time or financial commitment. Discuss those concerns with your counselor, and you can both look at the possible consequences of your decision so that you can make a more informed choice.
Remember that ending counseling doesn’t eliminate you from the possibility that you may need it again in the future. Knowing that counseling will continue to be available will be a comfort to you now that you have an additional resource to turn to when situations arise that are difficult for you to handle alone.
