This website is an effort of a coordination of multiple organizations and agencies. It comes as a result of discussions about having one centralized place people can go to see very clearly and concisely what services are available specifically for addiction to a substance.
Navigating within all health care providers can be tricky, navigating within the Addiction Treatment and Recovery Supports arena/world can be even more so.
This web site is designed to be a resource for individuals seeking treatment, families and friends seeking information, and treatment for a friend or loved one and for those that work in the field.
This publication is supported by a grant from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services/Bureau of Community Based Services, Office of Recovery Oriented Systems of Care, through Lakeshore Regional Entity. Its contents are solely the responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official views of MDHHS/OROSC or LRE.
MIRecovery hopes to provide a starting place for answers to questions commonly asked about addiction treatment, as well as to provide resources that support a persons desire to pursue recovery from addiction. It is not intended to provide evaluations of services listed. We list only resources that are currently providing services and update and revise the content weekly.
