Detroit News Opinion: Funding for opioid crisis not nearly enough
Sanford Addiction Treatment Centers
Based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Sanford Addiction Treatment Centers is a leader and innovative provider of integrated treatment for substance use disorders and co-occurring mental health disorders. At Sanford, we provide our clients with evidence-based clinical and medical services, in both outpatient and residential settings, while identifying the unique needs of each person we treat. Our person-centered approach allows us to craft a specialized treatment plan that addresses all aspects of a recovering person’s life, with particular emphasis on family involvement.
As a privately held company, Sanford will not benefit from the State Opioid Response Grant. But the disease of addiction and the opioid crisis affects all aspects of society and all members of an addicted person’s family. We believe in working together to develop and support preventative measures, including more comprehensive education in our schools and workplaces, for prevention is the key to solving this crisis.
