For anyone fighting addiction, the first step is to get the toxic substances out of the body. Our medically-supervised detox program helps you through those initial days, preparing you physically, so you can begin the work of rebuilding your life.
Most ATS clients begin at the detox facility, the P.I.E.R., where they can be medically supervised and cared for as they take the brave first step of freeing their bodies of addictive substances. This process can cause serious physical and mental discomfort, lack of sleep and loss of appetite. In an active detox situation, often the most helpful thing someone can do is rest, exercise and pass the time. The P.I.E.R. allows ATS clients to accomplish that in a safe, supportive environment with medical and mental health professionals who have helped hundreds of others win the same fight. Group therapy and counseling are available in addition to general care and support.
Many potential clients have questions about detox. Our FAQ page has more details. For information about what to bring to detox, check out this form.
Our Men’s Residential Program is based on the premise that men—just as much as women—achieve better outcomes through gender-specific treatment programs. By creating a supportive, open and productive environment, we work with our clients to identify the factors contributing to their substance dependence, and then map out a practical path to recovery. We do this in a 27-bed residential environment that promotes skill building, emotional management, relationship building and relapse prevention strategies.
Phoenix Hall, the women’s residential program facility, houses up to twelve women on recovery journeys. The gorgeous house is within walking distance of downtown Traverse City and provides a safe, supportive environment for residents.
The Women’s Residential Program helps women determine and address together the array of issues contributing to their substance dependence. In addition, residents can develop skills for a full recovery, including emotional management, relationship building and relapse prevention strategies.
The Recovery Homes program provides safe, structured, sober home environments to assist those transitioning from residential treatment to independent living. Research suggests that those who live in environments supportive of a recovery lifestyle have the best outcomes. With the help, support and encouragment of program staff, residents in the Recovery Homes program work together to rebuild their lives.
Research has shown that both men and women achieve the best results in gender specific environments. Our specialized residential programs are housed in comfortable, friendly facilities in the heart of Traverse City.
Recovery is a life-long journey. There are many paths one can take to a hope-filled future. So whether you are fresh out of a residential treament program or just interested in taking a different approach to health, ATS offers a full range of outpatient services to meet the ongoing needs of those who are recovering from addiction.
Drug and alcohol free workplace policies improve profitability and workplace performance. LAB ONE offers drug testing for employers, as well as advice on creating a supportive workplace policy that encourages those struggling with addiction to seek help.
Do you take my insurance?
Currently we accept Priority Health, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, and Medicaid, which includes the “Healthy Michigan” plan. (Please see Healthy Michigan information at the bottom of this page). Additionally, we are currently working on adding our agency to many other insurance panels. Please give us a call to inquire about your specific plan and we may be able to work with you.
How can I get funding if I don’t have insurance?
There are many ways to access our services. We can help you get registered on the health exchange to determine your qualification.
For more information or assistance, please contact our Access Center for details: (231) 346-5216
Can I pay cash?
Yes. Many of our clients pay for services out of pocket. Sometimes they don’t want to engage their employer or insurance provider. Sometimes we can’t accept their insurance but they still want to come to our agency. Sometimes they don’t have insurance. Whatever the reason, many people do pay for services with cash, check or credit card. Please call to explore your options.
How many beds do you have?
Dakoske Hall (the men’s residential program) has 28 beds. Phoenix Hall (our women’s program) has 12 beds. The Detox unit has 15 beds. Most rooms are double occupancy.
How long are your programs?
While we offer multiple levels of care, the exact length of services are based on the individual needs of the person served.
What can I bring with me?
For the residential programs you will need 7 days worth of clothing and toiletries, plus a 30 day supply of medications. For detox, 2 or 3 days of comfortable clothing, toiletries and 7 days worth of your medications.
Can I have visitors?
During your stay, we encourage family involvement and participation. We have scheduled times for this to occur.
What is your treatment model?
ATS is proud to say that we are one of the most innovative treatment centers in the state. We are trauma informed at all levels of the agency. We have worked hard over the course of the last few years to implement curriculum that is evidence based and peer reviewed. These “best practice” strategies ensure that the agency remains on the cutting edge of research from the field. For instance, the reasons we separated our residential programs by gender a few years ago was because the research said that this would create the best outcomes for our clients. So, that is what we did.
