Our Founder's Message
We invite you to take a moment and imagine a place where behavioral health treatment becomes inspirational.
A place where you are an intimate part of a community. Where you feel fully present, and the experience is rigorous and worth achieving. This place challenges you to dive deep, question preconceived notions, and explore yourself and the world around you, guided by proven clinical techniques.
And for the first time in a long time, you can step outside of yourself and test what previously did not seem possible. Imagine that such a place will feed your body and soul with a personalized selection of spirituality and wellness. You will plumb old and new interests and plan together to move again because Sanford Behavioral Health thrives on trust and respect, and accountability.
And in this place, we will focus on education for you and your family, so you will all gain a profound understanding of addiction, eating disorders, and mental health disorders. While we’re at it, why can’t we make aspects of treatment fun? We will. We will inspire you to recapture your old self and build a life that is even better than the one you lived before.
Our family has created an outstanding treatment program. We are in the Midwest and founded on Midwestern values. Our facilities themselves are a source of inspiration. Sanford House at John Street for Men and Sanford House at Cherry Street for Women represent iconic architecture in Grand Rapids, Michigan. We have restored these beautiful places, so you can do the challenging work of treatment in a motivational space. The Sanford Outpatient Center and Sanford Comprehensive Treatment for Eating Disorders are hubs for treatment and community support. Outpatient treatment and telehealth programs allow for the continuation of safe, everyday activities while integrating effective strategies to manage recovery. And our newly renovated Sanford West Behavioral Health Campus is ready to treat high-acuity patients with an integrative approach to addiction and co-occurring disorders, eating disorders, mental health, and medical conditions.
You can do this.
And we will be there for you. We have assembled a group of talented and credentialed medical and clinical professionals to walk this path with you. They inspire us every day, and we trust they will inspire you. And so, we invite you to come into the Sanford family and begin a new and better life in recovery.
