Community Education and Support

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have temporarily suspended in-person 12-step meetings. All family support and education programs are being offered virtually.

Resources for people dealing with addiction

Care for addiction, also known as substance-use disorder, doesn’t stop once a person goes home from residential (inpatient) treatment  or finishes an outpatient addiction program. Recovery is an ongoing process, and we encourage patients and their families to take advantage of the many resources available. This includes our own addiction education programs as well as the possible use of 12-step programs offered by organizations throughout the metro Detroit area.

Virtual Family Programs

Community EducationWe know that addiction affects relationships and the entire family. That’s why we offer free education programs and support groups for those who are dealing with a loved one with a substance use disorder. These programs are available at Henry Ford Maplegrove Center in West Bloomfield.
