Sanford West Behavioral Health Campus (Sanford West)

UPDATE - Sanford West Behavioral Health Campus is located 12 minutes from downtown Grand Rapids, in Marne, Michigan, and situated on 18 acres; all Sanford facilities, including all programs at Sanford House at Cherry and John Streets, have moved to Sanford West.

A little history - Sanford Behavioral Health (Sanford House), founded by Rae and David Green in 2015, has come a long way. Our mission to elevate the effectiveness and availability of treatment for individuals diagnosed with addiction and mental health disorders has led to nine years of intelligent, controlled growth. Today, Sanford is a thriving substance use disorder, eating disorder, and mental health treatment center.

The opening of Sanford West Behavioral Health Campus in 2022 was a testament to our commitment to 'raising the bar'Rae and David Green founded Sanford Behavioral Health (Sanford House) in 2015 with a mission to elevate the effectiveness and availability of treatment for individuals diagnosed with addiction and mental health disorders. After nine years of intelligent, controlled growth, Sanford Behavioral Health is now a thriving substance use disorder, eating disorder, and mental health treatment center. With the opening of Sanford West Behavioral Health Campus in 2022, Sanford was able to “raise the bar” on mental health treatment in Michigan and beyond.

Notably, Sanford West is not just another treatment center. It's a pioneer in its own right, housing the first standalone residential eating disorder treatment center in Michigan. This unique feature, coupled with a full complement of psychiatric and medical providers sets us apart. Our staff offers individualized solutions for long-term recovery and a full continuum of evidence-based programs.

Under one roof - The hallmarks of Sanford, such as original artwork, custom furniture, and an abundance of light, are apparent at Sanford West. And although it is a big, sprawling campus, program areas are strategically divided into more intimate spaces. By doing this, we have the flexibility and can create a sense of community that most large, institutionalized centers do not have the ability to do. 

Sanford West is well positioned to treat high acuity patients with an integrated approach to addiction and co-occurring disorders, eating disorders, mental health, and medical conditions. All of our programs are backed by a multi-disciplinary team of medical and clinical professionals. Programs at Sanford West incude:

  • Medical & Psychiatric Assessments
  • Psychiatrist-led Medical Team
  • Detox Center
  • Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Treatment
  • Co-Occurring Disorders Integrative Treatment
  • Outpatient Center
    • Virtual programs for SUD, eating disorders & mental health primary
  • Mental Health Primary
  • Outpatient Psychiatric
  • Supportive Living
  • Eating Disorder Residential
  • Outpatient Eating Disorder & Telehealth

Our mission for Sanford West Behavioral Health Campus is to fill the gaps in mental health treatment in Michigan. We want to effectively treat the root cause of co-occurring mental health conditions and facilitate more thorough healing for individuals in our care.

Our Programs

Detox - Open with Beds Available!

Filled with light, original artwork, and similar to other Sanford Behavioral Health properties in the Greater Grand Rapids area, Sanford Detox Center at Sanford West is a beautiful space in which to heal. Comfort is key, as sub-acute detox is the process of safely ridding the body of alcohol/drugs and managing the resultant withdrawal symptoms. During this process, patients may experience mental and physical symptoms which include body discomfort (sometimes extreme), nausea, or anxiety. Some detox symptoms can even be life threatening.

At this level of detox, patients are unlikely to complete withdrawal without 24-hour nursing care and regular physician visits. They may also be experiencing co-occurring psychiatric or medical conditions which may put them at risk for a complicated withdrawal process. Consequently, led by Chief Medical Officer, Gilbert Al Masterson, M.D., Sanford has qualified healthcare providers who can help manage these co-occurring conditions while allowing an individual to safely detox from drugs and alcohol.
