Addiction Services in Northern Michigan

Addiction Services in Northern Michigan

At Pine Rest, we believe addiction is a chronic disease of the brain and those diagnosed should receive the highest quality treatment with dignity, respect and compassion.

We provide substance use disorder services in our Traverse City Clinic and through Telehealth Services. Most insurance policies cover the cost of services. Financial assistance may be available.

Assessment and Evaluation

We first assess and evaluate each client and create an individualized plan of care. We can coordinate care with your physician and provide referrals as needed to other services.

Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) — starting in September 2018

Our Traverse City Clinic provides an outpatient opioid detoxification program. This Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) program is not a stand-alone or a substitute level of care. The client who meets criteria for this program will also be required to participate in other recovery-based therapy programs.

Individual Therapy

All therapy is provided by experienced, credentialed clinicians through the use of individual one-to-one sessions lasting 45 to 60 minutes. All therapists are capable of treating persons with both mental health and substance use disorders.

Early Recovery Group

Providing a safe and supportive learning environment for persons recovering from substance use disorders, the early recovery group is ideal for those who have already completed other treatment programs and need continuing care or for those who have had some recovery success but struggle with relapse.

Mental Health Services

Often during evaluation, a mental health condition such as anxiety, depression or trauma is diagnosed. All of our therapists are capable of treating persons with both mental health and substance use disorders.

Individual and Group Therapy

We offer individual and group therapy to Michigan residents through an online video connection similar to Facetime or Skype.

Clients have the option of using their own device (smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer), if available. Otherwise, a tablet may be provided so the client can attend individual therapy and group meetings. We also have established some group meet up places with video conferencing equipment for clients to participate in group sessions.

Peer Recovery Coaches

Qualifying telehealth clients will be assigned a peer recovery coach — an individual who has been through recovery themselves and can provide encouragement, case management, skills building and support throughout the recovery process.

Most insurance policies cover the cost of services. Financial and technology assistance may be available.

“Instead of having to travel a long way in bad weather, (Telehealth Services) allows people to go online for treatment,” says Scott Smith, MA, LPC, CAADC from the Traverse City Clinic. “Another benefit is that it provides an added element of confidentiality for professionals.”
