What types of addictions do you treat at ATS?

Our detox and residential programs are specific to substance use disorders and people with co-occurring disorders. Our outpatient services cover substance use, co-occurring disorders, behavioral health issues (including gambling addiction), and trauma counseling.

What is your treatment model?

We’re proud to be one of Michigan’s most innovative and well-respected treatment centers. We are trauma-informed at all levels and work hard to implement a curriculum that’s evidence-based and peer-reviewed. Our residential and outpatient services encourage a wellness-based approach that treats the whole person, so treatment is personalized to the physical and mental needs of each individual. By using these best-practice strategies, we’re able to stay on the cutting edge of addiction treatment.

How long are your programs?

Our residential programs typically last 28 days. Since we offer multiple levels of care and each recovery plan is unique, the exact length of services are based on the individual needs of each client.

How many beds are at each facility?

Dakoske Hall (the men’s residential program facility) has 27 beds. Phoenix Hall (our women’s program facility) has twelve beds. The detox unit, the P.I.E.R., has fifteen beds. Most rooms are set up for double occupancy.

How much does it cost?

Addiction Treatment Services continues to be one of the most affordable treatment centers in the state of Michigan. Contact us to discuss pricing for our various services or to learn more about state funding and health insurance coverage.

Can I pay for services directly?

Yes. There are many reasons why several of our clients choose to pay for services out of pocket. Sometimes they don’t want to engage their employers or insurance providers. Sometimes we’re unable to accept their insurance but they still want to come. Sometimes they don’t have insurance. Whatever the case, we do accept cash, check, or credit card for treatment and services. Please call us at 800.622.4810 to explore your options.

Do you take my insurance?

We currently accept Priority Health, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, and Medicaid, which includes the Healthy Michigan Plan (see below). We’re actively working on adding other insurance options. Please contact us to inquire about your specific plan, and we may be able to work with you.

What do I need to know about the Healthy Michigan Plan?

The Healthy Michigan Plan includes the following health care benefits (among others):

  • Emergency services
  • Hospitalization
  • Maternity care
  • Mental health and substance use disorder services
  • Prescription drugs

If you’re interested in applying for the Healthy Michigan Plan, you should have the following information ready:

  • Social Security Number (SSN) for self, spouse, dependents and/or anyone who lives in the household
  • Income information for self, spouse, dependents and/or anyone who lives in the household. Income includes employment, unemployment, social security, disability, etc.
  • Information about any present insurance policy (including policy number) that you and/or anyone in the family/household is covered under. If an individual has insurance that’s expiring soon, it’s still important to report the insurance.
  • If you’re a student with loans, you’ll need to report how much is owed on the loans, how much and the frequency at which money is borrowed, and whether payments are being made on the loans.
