Alcohol Abuse Treatment and Sobriety Assistance: You are not alone
One out of every ten U.S. children lives with a parent who struggles with alcohol.  Roughly 65 million Americans report binge drinking in the past month.  Another 15 million are struggling with alcohol use disorder or alcoholism —but less than 8% are receiving treatment. 
Every one of these people struggling is someone’s special person—a parent, a child, a spouse.
And they are sliding ever deeper into their addiction.
Are you concerned that you, a friend, or a family member has a problem?
If you think you might be ready to take that first step—or next step—we’re here for you.
What Does an Alcohol Abuse Recovery Program Look Like?
No one has to do this alone. CARE of Southeastern Michigan will connect you with a whole community of people in recovery.
We’ve been where you are. Not just the blow-ups—fights with family members, nights in jail or the ER—but the little things: Broken promises, lying to your boss, ticking down that list of symptoms in your head, doing things you thought you would never do.
We’ve been sure we had it all under control. We’ve been “too busy” to make a change. We’ve “tried everything,” and relapsed, and felt totally alone.
At CARE we believe there are multiple unique paths to recovery. This could include traditional 12-step programs, a stay in a treatment center, detox, medication-assisted treatment, group therapy, spiritual and faith-based support groups—or something completely different.
Each person served by CARE is matched with a Recovery United peer recovery coach. Together, you and your coach construct an individual path to recovery. This includes:
- Meeting as often as you need, in a place that works for you, on the schedule that your recovery demands
- Identifying triggers and relapse prevention strategies
- Making short-term and long-term goals
- Connecting you with the resources you need to live your life
- Building your community support network—a group of people who understand your struggle
- Developing the self-sufficiency and self-honesty you need for a lasting recovery
Each Peer Recovery Coach has at least three years in recovery. They’re equipped with extensive training on addiction and recovery, and are familiar with all the resources available to you—not only mental health services and substance abuse treatment programs, but also “wrap-around” services. More importantly, they’re absolutely committed to the individual path to recovery you’ve chosen. They are here to bridge the gaps, so you have the essentials you need to focus on a lasting recovery.
