She managed several nonprofit organizations prior to receiving her MA in counselor education and counseling psychology from Western Michigan University. As a licensed professional counselor, Rae also holds a SPADA certification, the Specialty Program in Alcohol and Drug Abuse. She then spent five years at a women’s residential treatment center and was instrumental in collaborating with the clinical team to implement new services to meet the individual needs of each client. Rae’s extensive experience working with women in residential treatment centers inspired her to seek a new approach. In collaboration with her husband, David, Rae founded Sanford House to serve as a beacon for recovery and to inspire women with the belief that life in recovery can be richer, fuller, and more fulfilling.

Excellent
I marked "unsure" only because my daughter is still in treatment at this facility. So far it has been an outstanding facility and she is thriving there. The one on one interaction between staff and the patient. I think they should incorporate more meetings and information geared toward NA, not just AA

Customized rehab, experienced addiction counselors. Need a doctor or psychiatrist on staff, visiting with patients regularly. Very small groups and a lot of personal attention

Sanford House is a very luxurious place to stay for rehab. It is beautiful. The beds are extremely comfortable, the rooms are spacious, welcoming, and homey. The place has an excellent chef and very healthy food. The staff is phenomenal. You can tell they genuinely care about each and every woman they work with and know what to offer to women. You get to attend outside support group meetings every evening, and go to the YMCA. They have a variety of types of group therapy and take your preferences into consideration for the weekly schedule for which meetings and activities to do. I would call it the platinum standard for rehabs, having seen many rehabs up close and personal. It is on par with other rehabs for affordability.
