The Substance Abuse Services and Corrections Mental Health programs of Community Mental Health Authority of Clinton, Eaton and Ingham Counties (CMHA CEI) offer a three-five day, Sub-Acute Clinical Detoxification program with a 24 hour structure. The Recovery Center is an 10 bed clinically managed detoxification program designed to provide a safe, caring environment that assists individuals during the detox process from alcohol and other drugs, while promoting health and well being. All interested individuals will receive a pre-screening by the program for appropriateness. After a person is stabilized and no longer at risk for withdrawal, The Recovery Center supports continued recovery efforts by connecting the individual with next level of care treatment providers, such as substance use disorder residential or outpatient treatment services and support groups.

Transfers to next level of care for men can be made to residential substance use disorder treatment at the CMHA CEI, House of Commons (HOC) in Mason, Michigan. HOC is available for up to 90 days of treatment. Referrals are also made to women’s residential programs and other men’s residential programs as requested. Some transportation is made available to residential treatment programs in the Lansing area.

Program staff are available 24 hours per day, seven days per week for screenings to ensure there are no issues that would prohibit a safe withdrawal and to ensure bed availability. After the short screening process, if admission criteria are met, admission to the program can be immediate.
