Rae and David Green established Sanford Addiction Treatment Centers in 2015 with a ten bed women’s facility in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Their mission was to elevate the effectiveness and availability of treatment for individuals diagnosed with substance use disorders (SUDs). Today, Sanford Behavioral Health is licensed and accredited as a substance use disorder, eating disorder, and co-occurring mental health treatment facility, serving the state of Michigan and beyond. Sanford is led by a growing team of medical, clinical and support personnel providing medication-assisted and science-based treatment to residential, outpatient and telehealth patients.
The need to raise the standard of substance use, eating disorder, and mental health treatment in Michigan has only grown since Sanford was established. And the fact we are located in the Midwest is central to our core values. Being a midwestern organization is also central to how we approach treatment. We instill a strong work ethic that serves when the “going gets tough.” Sanford expertise, authority and trustworthiness, are born of our deep-rooted work ethic, moral code and desire to help others. After all, modest integrity and lending a hand are hallmarks of both midwestern values and successful recovery.
Integrated Treatment Programs
Our goal is to improve the overall health of the residents in our state by embracing recovery-oriented systems of care. Our integrated programs include education, disease prevention, assessment and diagnosis, treatment, disease management, and long term recovery support. We look at the whole person and provide person-centered, safe, clinically and medically sophisticated treatment. With our signature Real Life Recovery programs, we integrate experiential therapy into the recovery process whenever possible, utilizing excursions in the Michigan outdoors, creative expression, and other activity-based techniques to restore physical and psychological health.
