I was able to spend Christmas with my family this year, it's the first time in 5 years I could and it's because I went to Great Lakes Rehab. GLR is the first and only rehab I've been to because until 6 months ago I didn't want to stop using. That finally changed and when I asked my parents for help they sent me to GLR. Even though it's the only rehab I've been to I don't think any other place would have worked for me. I struggled a lot during my program, more so in the beginning. The staff at GLR are what got me to stick it out and were able to get me to the point where I was doing good on my own. They have staff there who have gone through the same thing and because of their understanding and compassion they were able to get me to stick with it. I've been home now for almost 2 months and I'm doing good. My parents have been super helpful and supportive and I'm doing so much better now. GLR was the right place for me to go and I'm very happy it's the place my parents found for me.
My best friend has been to 12 rehabs, 2 detoxes and countless NA meetings. None of them were what she needed or were able to help her long term. She is doing a thousand times better since going to Great Lakes Rehabilitation. She stayed there for 6 months as everyone going there goes through their program at their own pace. She did great there. When we spoke she was always raving about the staff or how much she liked it there. I definitely didn't expect that when she first called me. I mean, it's a rehab not a resort. She loved it there though and by going to GLR she finally found what worked for her. She's been home from GLR for 6 months and is still going strong. She works hard to maintain her sobriety now. She's going back to school now. She's wanted to be a veterinarian since she was little and when she started using when she was in college. It's a pretty big deal that she wants to go back now. It's says a lot about her confidence level now that she's wants to go back.
The worst rehabilitation center that could exist! They don't care that the treatments aren't correctly applied to patients, the only thing that matters to them is the money they can get from them. The majority of the personnel are people recovered from drug addiction and some of them have only been 6 months, they are still prone to relapse again.
I didn't want to go to Great Lakes Rehab. I didn't want to get clean, didn't want to stay sober. I went because I didn't want my parents to cut me off and the way to do that was by going to rehab. That changed for me a couple weeks into my program. My counselor sat me down and we went over every single aspect of my life. By doing that, she made me realize that I wasn't doing as well as I thought and that my entire life was controlled by my addiction. I decided to get the help I needed there and she was there for me every step of the way. Whether it was talking to me when I needed it or just being supportive in general, she was always there to help. I stayed there for 3 months and it was well worth it. I've been sober for 11 months now and my life has been great since coming home. My parents and I are getting along really well again. It's not always easy but I'm doing it and I wouldn't be doing near this well without the help I got by going to GLR but specifically from my counselor.
I've been to Great Lakes Rehabilitation twice. The first time I went, I didn't want to get sober. I went because my mom and sister begged me to go. I didn't do the work I should have. I did the bare minimum needed to graduate and so it's no surprise that I relapsed as soon as I could. Being at GLR changed me though. I didn't realize how much until after I had been using again for 3 months. There was this day when I realized that I was miserable and that I had been miserable since relapsing. When I thought about my time at GLR I realized that I was actually pretty content there and that if I had just done the work right I would have been happy at home being sober. So, I asked my mom to send me back and she did. I got a lot more out of my second program for sure. The staff were great and they made sure that I got all the tools I needed to stay sober this time. Going to Great Lakes Rehabilitation got me to the point where I wanted to get sober and then gave me the tools to stay sober.
I went to Great Lakes Rehabilitation 2 years ago. When I went it was called Best Drug Rehabilitation but everything about the facility is the same as when I was there. It's been 2 years since I've been there and I'm still in awe over what going to the facility has done for me. Before going to BDR I had been using pain pills for 12 years and had been to 8 different rehab programs, none of which helped me even a fraction as much as BDR did. Before going to BDR I hadn't been able to stay clean for more than 3 months. Now, it's been 2 years and I'm still sober. It's more than that though. Going to BDR gave me my life back. Before, if I finished a rehab I'd be scared to leave my house. I wanted to use so badly and I never knew if I left if I would make it back sober or not. I don't have that fear anymore and I can go out with my friends or see my mom and not worry that I'm going to end up using at the first opportunity. I'm so glad I went to what is now Great Lakes Rehabilitation.
Coming here was the best thing I've ever done. I'd been to 3 other rehabs and 1 detox and after each of those places I relapsed the same day I got home. This facility was different for me. I felt comfortable here instead of miserable and depressed like I was in the other places. I learned about myself, my addiction, how to handle the various situations I could be in and how to make sure those situations didn't lead to a relapse. I loved the staff, who are great at their job but more are just really great people who are dedicated to helping others. Having staff there who have dealt with their own addictions helped me, I felt understood and it was easier to talk to talk and even easier to listen to them and whatever advice they had. Since going to Great Lakes Rehab I feel in control of my life, I know what I want to be doing and the steps to get there. I'm happy again and looking forward to the rest of my life free of drugs.
BDR has a qualified and trained staff that are on site to help both first-time patients and those who have tried and failed at rehab in the past because that is one thing that affects so many people going into rehab is the fear of failure. Everyone who is looking for a way to get sober must come to BDR because it is the only place that people are going to be able to get better without continually living in the endless cycle of addiction. This is the program for people who want to make sure that they can live their lives drug-free after a program, and the people who are on the staff of the center are going to help everyone get sober with the kind of help that they need to learn new skills. It is a great place to come for assistance, and it is a very safe place to come when people want to have someone caring on their side. Best Drug Rehabilitation is the best place for people to go when they want to get well and make sure that you are ready to learn and work with the people around them.
Receiving treatment at BDR will be a smart choice that an addict can make to finally get clean from drugs. It worked well for me and I am glad I made this choice. No matter what you are trying to get clean from amd a program like BDR is the best and safest way to recover. Both the mental and physical effects of withdrawal are hard to experience for so many people but can be helped with a place like BDR, You can overcome this. BDR offers the beginning of a better life for you and your loved ones and it is so helpful for so many people.

Detox Services:

Medication-Assisted Treatment:

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the use of medications along with counseling and therapy to treat substance abuse. MAT is mainly used to treat opioid addictions (i.e. heroin and/or prescription drugs like OxyContin or Vicodin). Medications like buprenorphine are used in MAT to help normalize brain chemistry, block the effects of alcohol and/or opioids, relieve cravings, and stabilize body functions, making sobriety easier to maintain. All medications used are approved by the FDA, and every MAT program is tailored to the patient’s specific needs.

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.

Level of Care:


Outpatient Programs (OP) are for those seeking mental rehab or drug rehab, but who also stay at home every night. The main difference between outpatient treatment (OP) and intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) lies in the amount of hours the patient spends at the facility. Most of the time an outpatient program is designed for someone who has completed an inpatient stay and is looking to continue their growth in recovery. Outpatient is not meant to be the starting point, it is commonly referred to as aftercare.

Medically Assisted Detox:

At reputable rehabilitation centers, such as Best Drug Rehabilitation, medical personnel will be available to make the process of detoxification as safe and comfortable as possible for the client. During this time, a doctor or other health professional will make an overall assessment that will be used for the detox treatment plan. Many people mistake the detoxification process for rehabilitation. Detox is only the first step to recovery. It has no impact on the psychological, physical, or social aspects of drug and alcohol addiction. The treatment and recovery period is the process of rehabilitation when the person who has the addiction is introduced back into society without the dependency.


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.

Sober Living Homes:

Sober Living Houses (SLHs), aka sober homes or halfway houses, are safe, substance-free, supportive living facilities for those recovering from substance abuse. Ideal for those who've just been through inpatient or outpatient treatment, SLHs are supervised environments with rules that support sobriety, such as curfews, shared chores, and therapeutic meetings. Residents are also often trained on life skills and coping skills to make it easier to transition into society. SLHs also provide a strong sense of community that can lead to the kind of deep and lasting connections with other sober individuals that supports a new, healthy lifestyle.


12-step programs are addiction recovery models based on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). A number of substance abuse programs (including some drug and alcohol rehab centers) use the 12 steps as a basis for treatment. Beginning steps involve admitting powerlessness over the addiction and creating a spiritual basis for recovery. Middle steps including making direct amends to those who've been hurt by the addiction, and the final step is to assist others in addiction recovery in the same way. 12-Step offshoots including Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Dual Recovery Anonymous (DRA), Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA) and Gamblers Anonymous (GA).

Aftercare Support:

Best Drug Rehabilitation always provides aftercare services because clients are more likely to remain drug free with continued support. Even after completing the initial program, clients speak to a counselor on a regular basis to work through challenges that arise. The aftercare services include a transitional phase. During the transition into normal life outside the center, clients are offered support and advice. Help is provided for the first few weeks of transitioning back into habits like work, school, and family life. Counselors provide continued support until the transition period is complete and clients settle into routines. After the routines begin, counselors will require regular meetings to follow through with activities, stress levels, and concerns for an extended period of time.

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.

Individualized Treatment:

Certain drug and alcohol rehab centers have standard treatment regimes they expect all patients to follow. Others offer individualized treatment, meaning they tailor treatment to a person's specific background and needs. For example, a rehab facility may adjust a treatment program to take into account the type of drug or addiction from which the person suffers, their age, medical condition(s), religious beliefs, or lifestyle. They have multiple intake counselors, physicians, and case managers that will converse with and interview each new client to create the best recovery program possible.

Intensive Outpatient:

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) are for those who want or need a very structured treatment program but who also wish to live at home and continue with certain responsibilities (such as work or school). IOP substance abuse treatment programs vary in duration and intensity, and certain outpatient rehab centers will offer individualized treatment programs.

Partial Hospitalization Program:

A partial hospitalization program (PHP) is a short-term form of intensive rehab, usually for those with acute symptoms that are hard to manage but don’t require 24-hour care. PHPs have structured programming (i.e. individual and/or group therapy), and usually meet 3-5 days a week for around 6 hours (i.e. 9am-3m). Some PHPs are residential (patients sleep on site) and some are not, so patients sleep at home. PHPs can last from 1-6 months, and some offer transportation and meals.

Intervention Services:

Intervention services helps family or friends of addicts stage an intervention, which is a meeting in which loved ones share their concerns and attempt to get an addict into treatment. Professional intervention specialists can help loved ones organize, gather, and communicate with an addict. They can guide intervention participants in describing the damage the addict's behavior is causing and that outside help is necessary to address the addiction. The ideal outcome of an intervention is for the addict to go to rehab and get the help they need.

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.

Dual Diagnosis:

Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Rehab and other substance abuse facilities treating those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder administer psychiatric treatment to address the person's mental health issue in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Mental Health and Substance Abuse:

A combined mental health and substance abuse rehab has the staff and resources available to handle individuals with both mental health and substance abuse issues. It can be challenging to determine where a specific symptom stems from (a mental health issue or an issue related to substance abuse), so mental health and substance abuse professionals are helpful in detangling symptoms and keeping treatment on track.

Therapy Programs:

Family Therapy:

At Best Drug Rehabilitation, it is strongly believed that family is everything when it comes to recovery and sobriety. Because of this, patients undergoing drug rehabilitation will find that this counseling is of a great help. As result of family counseling not only does it help to correct ways of thinking and behaving around one s family, but it also instills a sense of motivation in the patient to be a better family member. Counseling of this nature also works to educate the patient and the family members about the signs of a potential relapse too, as well as the importance of building a strong social network with safe individuals around one.

Individual Therapy:

During this a trained and certified counselor and the patient work tirelessly to get to the basic root of why the patient felt and behaved irrationally in the first place with drug and alcohol abuse to begin with. At Best Drug Rehabilitation, it s all about getting to the bottom of the addiction and working upwards from there. One step at a time, true peace comes about from this technique, bringing with it freedom from anxious, painful feelings that one might have regarding addiction and life in general. The former addict then feels confident, productive, and happier and is free to enjoy life and reach his or her true potential as a totally sober and recovered individual.

Group Therapy:

This type of counseling is truly life-saving and has basically infinite benefits and uses. Group counseling at Best Drug Rehabilitation involves a close meeting with a group counselor, as well as other patients at the center. Sometimes it can often be found to be helpful for rehab patients to share their various experiences with those around them who are in similar positions and to provide support to fellow patients to help them along through their own personal addiction crisis. Drug and alcohol addiction often lead to varying degrees of social isolation so this therapy can be quite cathartic after the initial fear passes for them.

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:

Life skills trainings involve all the skills a person must have in order to function successfully in the world. These include time management, career guidance, money management, and effective communication. Truly successful addiction recovery is based on the ability to not only live substance-free, but to thrive. Life skills teaches the practical necessities of functioning in society, which sets clients up for success in life, and therefore sobriety.

Nutrition Therapy:

Nutrition therapy, aka medical nutrition therapy (MNT), is a way of treating physical, emotional, and medical conditions through diet. Specific dietary plans are designed by professional nutritionists or registered dietitians, and patients follow them in order to positively affect their physical and mental health.

Trauma Therapy:

Trauma therapy addresses traumatic incidents from a client's past that are likely affecting their present-day experience. Trauma is often one of the primary triggers and potential causes of addiction, and can stem from child sexual abuse, domestic violence, having a parent with a mental illness, losing one or both parents at a young age, teenage or adult sexual assault, or any number of other factors. The purpose of trauma therapy is to allow a patient to process trauma and move through and past it, with the help of trained and compassionate mental health professionals.

Couples Therapy:

Whether a marriage or other committed relationship, an intimate partnership is one of the most important aspects of a person's life. Drug and alcohol addiction affects both members of a couple in deep and meaningful ways, as does rehab and recovery. Couples therapy and other couples-focused treatment programs are significant parts of exploring triggers of addiction, as well as learning how to build healthy patterns to support ongoing sobriety.

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.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy:

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a modified form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a treatment designed to help people understand and ultimately affect the relationship between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. DBT is often used for individuals who struggle with self-harm behaviors, such as self-mutilation (cutting) and suicidal thoughts, urges, or attempts. It has been proven clinically effective for those who struggle with out-of-control emotions and mental health illnesses like Borderline Personality Disorder.

Rational Behavior Therapy:

Rational Behavior Therapy (RBT) is a form of cognitive behavioral therapy meant to be short-term and comprehensive. It was intended to help clients become more self-sufficent and move forward without the need for expensive, ongoing therapy. It includes an emotional self-help method called “rational self-counseling,” the purpose of which is to give clients all the skills needed to handle future emotional issues by themselves, or with significantly less professional help.

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.

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.

Fitness Therapy:

Fitness therapy blends exercise with psychotherapy for a fun, inspiring, and effective way of treating addiction and other issues. By incorporating movement into counseling sessions, clients become more empowered, motivated, and goal-oriented, all while strengthening their bodies and becoming more flexible. Fitness Therapy is usually used to complement a course of treatment (inpatient or outpatient) to make it even more successful. Increasing the connection between a patient’s mind and body helps both with healing as well as in creating new, healthy habits.
