Choices Recovery is a well structured recovery center with a very knowledgeable staff. SMART recovery class helped me to understand my addiction and Choices counseling staff helped and encouraged family therapy sessions which helped me better relationships in my life. Security staff as well as client services staff was always extremely helpful with any client needs 24/7. I would recommend this treatment facility to any family/friends/loved ones in need of help.
I had an amazing time. They really showed me that life is so much more than using and sobriety is amazing.
Great staff, excellent experience. Gained so much knowledge from the groups.
I spent the last 5 years screwing up my life and I finally got it back on track when I went to Choices Recovery. As soon as I realized that I was addicted to pain pills I tried to get off them. I tried at home by myself, I went to NA meetings and before going to Choices I went to 2 other rehabs. I couldn't get clean and every time I tried and failed to get clean, getting clean seemed a more and more impossible task. That finally changed when I went to Choices. There's a lot about the facility that makes it great. For me though, it was the staff working there who helped me the most. The staff there are extremely dedicated to helping other and they worked hard to ensure that I was comfortable with them and with the other clients there. I felt safe and comfortable there and that helped me tremendously throughout my program. I've been home for 5 months now and I've been doing great. Still clean and sober. I'm happy with my life now and that's because I went to Choices.
What makes them so great is their holistic approach. My husband received exactly the help he needed to overcome his problem, and he never felt so good in over 10 years.
The staff were all very helpful and supportive. This place gives you the options to build your way to recovery and the treatment I chose was on point. I'm really glad that i finally got sober and it's all thanks to here!
Going to Choices changed my life. I'd been using heroin since I was 17 and couldn't seem to get off it. Until I went to Choices. What doing the program at Choices did for me was that for the first time since I started using heroin I didn't crave heroin anymore. I learned so much about myself and my addiction, where my addiction came from and what my desire to continue using stemmed from. Learning all that wasn't easy for sure but the staff at Choices are some of the best and most amazing people I've ever worked with . They understood what I was dealing with in a way that I hadn't ever experienced and that made the whole process of going through rehab much easier. I've been sober for 13 months now. It's the longest I've ever stayed clean and I feel amazing. The great thing is that staying clean isn't all that hard for me. Because I have no desire to use I can do the work I need to in order to retain my sobriety and I don't mind doing it. My life is so much better since going to Choices.
Run and don’t look back if you’re thinking about this place. The staff (with a very small number of exceptions) are horribly unprofessional and rude. I overheard a number of times staff speaking to one another about certain patients and laughing and joking about them
What a great treatment center. Not a five star ritz by any means but man am I glad I went here. I’m from Traverse City, so it was a bit of a drive for me, but it was the only program in the Midwest my insurance would pay for and like heck was a hopping on a plane to Florida or some nonsense like that. No, Choices Recovery was a good choice for me (no pun intended) and seemed to be a well run and well organized treatment center. If I were to nail down the points about this center that made the most difference for me I’d say the staff, the services offered, and the length of time. The staff were great, all knowledgable and professional in a lot of different ways. The program was very well varied with a lot of different paths and modalities, so I liked that. The length of time was longer than what I’ve seen other programs do, and I like that too. All in all this was a great little treatment center down there in South Bend, IN.
I really loved the recovery services and treatment options that I got at Choices Recovery. Choices Recovery gave me the tools and the treatment methods necessary to triumph over even the most brutal of substance abuse habits that I was struggling with. I will very briefly go over here the things that I liked the most about Choices Recovery: Choices Recovery treated me very, very well. This treatment center offered a results based treatment approach, meaning that they were able to help people by further offering them more time if they needed it. No 28 day cut off! Choices Recovery also offered multi-modality approach to addiction treatment. That is to say that it created a situation in which people were able to really provide me with a variety of different recovery options and I wasn’t just stuck with one or two approaches. Choices Recovery also had some of the best staff out there. Really loved everybody who worked there.

Detox Services:

Buprenorphine Detox:

Buprenorphine (brand name Subutex, among others) is an opioid medication used to treat opioid addiction. Buprenorphine can prevent or significantly reduce withdrawal symptoms, making it easier to get and stay off opioids. Sometimes used alongside naloxone, dosage depends on the severity of each case. Many people stay on buprenorphine long-term, although some gradually reduce the dosage to come off it.

Psychotropic Medication:

Psychotropic medications (aka psychodynamic medication) are any medicines used specifically to affect and/or alter a patient's mind, emotions, and behaviors. Such psychiatric medicines are often used to change chemical levels in the brain that impact a person's mood and behavior. These medications include mood stabilizers, antidepressants, anti-ADHD drugs, and anti-anxiety medications.

Level of Care:

Intervention Services:

Addiction is a destructive, downward spiral that destroys careers, friendships, marriages and lives. If you’re waiting for a loved one to reach rock bottom, you may wait for years as the damage grows worse and worse. The isolation, loneliness, depression and helplessness an addict experiences often prevents him or her from seeking help. It may be up to you to step in, confront that person and convince them that the time for treatment is right now.

Holistic Treatment:

Rather than focusing solely on addiction, holistic treatment facilities treat patients in terms of their whole being. Holistic treatment is about more than just addiction and sobriety – it addresses the person’s life in its entirety, including career, physical, familial, and spiritual aspects.

SMART Recovery:

SMART Recovery is a science-based philosophy that seeks to teach self-empowerment utilizing a methodology composed of motivational interviewing or Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET) along with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques such as Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT).

Medically Assisted Detox:

The purpose of detoxification is to bring the body back to its normal rhythm or functioning. It’s used to restore the body to the state it was in before it became dependent on drugs or alcohol. After detoxification, individuals can get into even better shape than they were in before using drugs or alcohol. Unfortunately, it’s not quite as easy as it sounds. Oftentimes, detox can be a very painful and uncomfortable process. However, the entire process doesn’t last very long, so that is something people can look forward to.


Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient's individual requirements.

Religious Programs:

Religion used during treatment means a specific religion is used as the basis for care and treatment at a specific rehab facility or support group. Whether that faith is Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, or another religion, it is the central guiding principle behind the care. Counselors, support materials (like books or workbooks), and peers use that faith to support patients in finding their way to recovery. Surrendering to a higher power can be a relief to many patients, and religion can help those in recovery realize they're worthy or love and forgiveness. Connecting with their religion can provide patients a strong foundation for addiction recovery, and inspire comfort, support, and guidance in a deep, meaningful way.

Treatment Focus:


The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.

Opioid Addiction:

Opioid rehabs specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.

Substance Abuse:

Substance rehabs focus on helping individuals recover from substance abuse, including alcohol and drug addiction (both illegal and prescription drugs). They often include the opportunity to engage in both individual as well as group therapy.

Therapy Programs:

Individual Therapy:

In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapy modality that focuses on the relationship between one's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is used to establish and allow for healthy responses to thoughts and feelings (instead of unhealthy responses, like using drugs or alcohol). CBT has been proven effective for recovering addicts of all kinds, and is used to strengthen a patient's own self-awareness and ability to self-regulate. CBT allows individuals to monitor their own emotional state, become more adept at communicating with others, and manage stress without needing to engage in substance abuse.

Group Therapy:

Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members.

Creative Arts Therapy:

Creativity is inherently healing, and can help those in recovery express thoughts or feelings they might not otherwise be able to. Creative arts therapy can include music, poetry/writing, painting, sculpting, dance, theater, sandplay, and more. Unlike traditional art, the final product matters far less than the experience of creation and expression itself.

Experiential Therapy:

Experiential therapy is a form of therapy in which clients are encouraged to surface and work through subconscious issues by engaging in real-time experiences. Experiential therapy departs from traditional talk therapy by involving the body, and having clients engage in activities, movements, and physical and emotional expression. This can involve role-play or using props (which can include other people). Experiential therapy can help people process trauma, memories, and emotion quickly, deeply, and in a lasting fashion, leading to substantial and impactful healing.

Life Skills:

These groups are designed to allow patients to hone skills that can be used in everyday life to become more in control over things that might precipitate old behaviors by improving coping skills and knowing how to enhance relationships. Practicing these skills will reduce the confusions of life that lead to relapse and enable the patient to stay on a path of sobriety.

Motivational Interviewing:

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a clinical approach to helping people with substance abuse issues and other conditions shift behavior in positive ways. It is more goal-oriented than traditional psychotherapy, as MI counselors directly attempt to get clients to consider making behavioral change (rather than wait for them to come to conclusions themselves). Its primary purpose is to resolve ambivalence and help clients become able to make healthy choices freely.

Family Therapy:

Research clearly demonstrates that recovery is far more successful and sustainable when loved ones like family members participate in rehab and substance abuse treatment. Genetic factors may be at play when it comes to drug and alcohol addiction, as well as mental health issues. Family dynamics often play a critical role in addiction triggers, and if properly educated, family members can be a strong source of support when it comes to rehabilitation.

Nutrition Therapy:

While food is a large part of nutrition, it doesn’t represent nutrition as a whole. Even with an optimal diet, it’s not always possible for recovering addicts to get the essential minerals and vitamins they need. Optimal nutrition should consist of a balanced diet and nutritional supplements. Many rehab centers give patients multivitamins because they contain a little bit of many different types of vitamins. Supplements can be very helpful during the detox process. Stress management and support therapies are also useful. This is a basic overview of detoxification for alcohol and drug addiction. Anyone who is suffering from an addiction should seek inpatient care. A major benefit of inpatient care is nutritious meals and shelter. It gives individuals a comfortable, clean place to get deep sleep. However, there are countless other reasons to seek inpatient care. Addiction has the power to ruin a person’s life, and in many cases, it can cause premature death, which is why it’s very important to seek the type of care that is proven to get lasting results.

Nicotine Replacement Therapy:

Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) is a way of getting nicotine into the bloodstream without smoking. It uses products that supply low doses of nicotine to help people stop smoking. The goal of therapy is to cut down on cravings for nicotine and ease the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal.
