Philosophy

Northern Michigan's premier center for drug and alcohol detoxification and addiction treatment services. BRH creates an atmosphere perfect for addressing our patients’ individual addiction needs. Bear River Health at Walloon Lake acknowledges that each person has a uniqueness all their own and provides treatment personalized to meet those unique needs. Our program based on the 12-steps, provides exposure to multiple pathways to recovery that nourish the mind, body and spirit ensuring long-term recovery. Our compassionate, empathetic and caring professionals have years of experience assisting in detoxifying individuals from drugs and alcohol. We treat drug and alcohol addiction as a chronic and progressive medical disease that affects the physical, mental, and spiritual well-being of individuals and their families. At Bear River Health, we offer a medically supervised detoxification program that safely manages the painful symptoms that accompany withdrawal. Our twenty-four hour medical staff utilizes the Evidence Based Practice Protocols established by SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration). Our inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation programs offer several different, well established, individualized treatment modalities aimed at improving compliance and reducing the risk of relapse.

This treatment center was the best I’ve ever attended. The rooms are very home like with extremely comfortable beds and pillows. The treatment itself is awesome. The only complaints I have is that $20.00 dollars cash was missing from my account and some medication worth $1,800 for 30 days was also missing upon discharge. .

Seeking help for detox services I found myself at Bear River Health. Scared, still using, and very concerned for my health. I felt safe after arriving in detox. They have a full time nursing staff to monitor for safety and do everything necessary to provide comfort during this difficult stage. The Dr. is regularly on site and has a bedside manner unlike I've ever seen. Treatment itself is thorough and covers everything from emotions to relapse prevention. The campus like facilities provide an environment that promotes outdoor activities as well as indoor. The staff is very informative and attentive and the food is much like home. I could go on and on...

You feel like you\'re on a campus, you are allowed to walk around outside. I like to sit outside and play my guitar. We had fires at night, and I met lots of great people. Nothing like a jail. I love this place, and it saved my life.

I was lucky enough to be one of the first people to go through Bear River Health\'s 28-day residential program, and I can\'t say enough about how much it has changed my life for the better. If you want to really heal the underlying problems in your life that cause you to behave in an unhealthy or destructive way, this is the place for you. Most other programs I\'ve heard about only address getting you sober and letting you go, which can lead to relapse whenever a problem comes along. But BRH addresses all four directions of growth – spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical, which lead to permanent healing. They gave me the tools I needed to stay well, not just get well. Some of my favorite things about BRH were: • Everyone there treated me with warmth, respect and dignity, as they would treat a member of their own family. As one of the other participants in the program said: \"they love us until we can love ourselves\". • As a woman, I actually felt a little spoiled because the food was wonderful (and no dishes!), the rooms were kept clean, and the laundry done for me. There were programs in yoga, energy healing, nutrition, and even a group class with a personal trainer, to name just a few, which were taught by amazing, loving people who were happy to answer all my questions. • The people working there are some of the wisest people I\'ve ever met. Many left successful private practices because this was their calling, and it shows. They\'re great examples of how you can lead a beautiful, fulfilling life of joy without using drugs or alcohol. Just being in their presence made me feel good. I filled most of a notebook with words of wisdom from this program, but I\'ll just share a few with you as examples: • We\'re not bad people getting better, we\'re good people getting well • Cleaning up one area of your life automatically cleans up others • If you don\'t confront it, you can\'t conquer it • You can\'t run from the truth – it\'s faster than you • Humans are designed to learn by trial and error. Mistakes are sacred. • Your past was necessary to fulfill your purpose I think everyone who feels stuck in their life should try this program. Don\'t let money concerns stop you. You can\'t afford to continue with your life in this way, and they went out of their way to work with me to try to make it possible. With the addition of one particular doctor to their staff, I\'m sure it will only get better. They have some amazing evening programs open to the public, so you can just stop in and see how it feels to you with no obligation. My favorites are the Wellbriety Talking Circle on Tuesday evenings and the Chanting and Meditation group on Thursdays, both at 7:00 pm. I hope to see you there!
