Thinking about change?

Since 1985, our program has been helping inmates of the Macomb County Jail with their recovery needs.  Once out of the lifestyle, many people start to think about making healthy changes in their lives, and seeking out recovery services is often a part of that process.

We offer Track I & Track II programs, as well as Alcoholics and Narcotics Anonymous meetings throughout most areas of the jail.  Requesting help is simple, all it takes is a “kite” (inmate written request for help), or a person may be referred by a family member, friend or by the court.

There is no cost to attend our programs and we uphold the confidentiality of our clients.

Our therapists are all certified and/or licensed to provide counseling services.  Our agency is state licensed and CARF (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) accredited.

How it works:

Once we receive your referral or kite, you will be sent a pre-admission package.  This will get you started on the path of recovery by providing you with tools you can begin using now to make changes.  Your name will be placed on a waitlist and you will be seen for an interview by one of our therapists to determine how we can best help you.

Our Track I program provides education about addiction and recovery.  It meets once a week for 5 weeks, and each session is 2 hours long.

Our Track II program provides group therapy services for substance users.  Groups meet once a week for 15 weeks, and each session is 2 hours long.  Topics covered include lifestyle, coping with cravings, communication, relationships, life skills and others.  Participants help in establishing their own treatment goals.  Prior to jail release, referrals are made for additional counseling services, support groups and other supportive services.

Throughout the counseling process, we use cognitive therapy approaches, which help individuals understand and change their thinking.  Our services are client centered, which means that we understand that your needs are unique to you.

Alcoholics and Narcotics Anonymous meetings are also available upon request.

Are you ready?

You may send a request to “Substance Abuse” and we’ll get the process started.  We’re looking forward to meeting you
