Specialization

  • Detox

    Though not all rehab facilities offer “medical detoxification,” all people with an addiction to drugs or alcohol will experience intense physical and emotional changes and discomfort as their bodies react to withdrawal of the addictive substance. Many people use the term “detox” to refer to the period of time (ranging from a few days to a week) when the body is reacting to an addict’s decision to stop using.
  • Client & Family Support Groups

    Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.

Going to through rehab at BRS turned out to a surprising great experience. I’ve been to a few rehabs in the last few years and BRS is the nicest rehab I’ve been to. I would have put up with a lot to finally get off the pain medication that I’d become addiction to but, I went to BRS and it was great there. So, there are pros and cons to BRS. There aren’t many cons and they are completely outweighed by the number of pros there are. The first thing is that BRS is in central Michigan. Not really a con because it’s beautiful there but, if you’re going in winter, it’ll be a step past freezing. The second con which isn’t really a con is the food. I only bring it up because the website made me think the food was going to be completely amazing and it wasn’t. It was good though so, not really something to complain about. Think Applebee’s, not Spago’s. The last con, which isn’t really a con for the clients is that sometimes it seemed like there weren’t enough people working there. The staff at BRS is incredibly dedication to helping others and they are good at their job but, I think they were run a bit ragged sometimes. Now, the pros. The building is really nice. BRS looks and feels like you’re staying in a ski lodge and it doesn’t have that institutional feeling that most rehabs have. You’re allowed to smoke at BRS. I’ve never been to a rehab where I couldn’t smoke but, I’ve heard a couple horror stories of someone checking into treatment only to have them take their cigarettes away. Which sounds awful. They offer different programs at BRS. Every client is about to find a program that feels right to them. The first rehab I went to only offered the 12-step program. Now, I know it works for some people. I’ve talked to people that say it’s the best thing they have ever done, it helped them so much. For me, it felt weird to do. It didn’t fit with me or my personality and honestly, I until I went to BRS and was able to look at and find a different program, I thought it was normal. So, having the different programs available at BRS really is a huge benefit. The staff working at BRS are perfect for their jobs. Some of the most compassionate and understanding people I’ve ever met work at BRS. One thing that stood out to me was that to the staff at BRS, I was a person, not just an addict. They took the time to get to know me, to understand why I’d become addicted to pain meds and when I told them how I’d become addicted, they understood. With other people I’ve talked to about my addiction, it felt like once they found out that I’d become addicted, it didn’t matter how it happened, it didn’t matter that the first time I took a pain pill it came from a doctor and that everything I took actually came from a doctor. The only thing that mattered was the fact that I didn’t stop taking the pills, which made me an addict. It wasn’t like that at BRS. They took the time to understand me and my life. They helped me feel like a normal human being again and their attitude was very refreshing. You can stay at BRS for as long as you need to. I was there for 4 months but, there was someone who came and went in 30 days there and there was someone there that stayed for almost a year. It didn’t matter, you stayed for however long you need to. All in all, going to BRS was a really great experience that resulted in me being clean, sober and able to stay clean and sober. I haven’t run into any problems staying sober since getting home. I would have put up with so much to get to where I am today, I’m just glad I went to BRS because I didn’t have to put up with anything.

I thank you all for your many gifts of kindness you have shared with me these past several weeks at BRS. Sober now for 54 days after drinking for almost fifty years A bit of each of you will be with me in my heart and soul for the rest of my life. Thank you to those who saw me through detox, who kept me safe, who fed me and took care of my health. Thank you for your counsel, for your help in my search for after recovery support. And thank you to my guides who have lead me from the arid desert of addiction to a new land of joy, of sobriety and of inner peace. Thanks to my maker who knew that it was the right time, whose voice I finally heeded. The world can be a dark place and we, in our addiction, believe the toxic poisons we put into our bodies will shed a light to our path. We then discover we are wrong but because of a powerful voice deep inside, continue our journey to the abyss of our own personal hell, dragging all we treasure with us. As if drowning we raise our arms upward, seeking help but feeling no one there. Alone we descend further, expecting each breath to be our last. By the grace of God we feel a hand touch ours, softly at first and then with a mighty grasp. We are pulled upward to a light much brighter than any we have ever imagined before. It is the light of hope, the light of another chance. The choice is now ours. BRS has provided the hand, provided the SMART tools we need for a clean life, a life of gratitude, a life of humbleness, a life of balance and a life of respect for others and ourselves. Let each of us prove to ourselves and those around us that this second chance for a sober and productive life is indeed worth the effort and our thanks. Here is a verse from Joshua I have probably repeated hundreds of times while here and will perhaps lend comfort to you Have I not commanded you? Be strong! Be courageous! Do not be afraid! Do not be discouraged! For the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go Special thanks to the facilitators who are so filled with the passion to help us, just as they were helped with their own addictions. As they said so often, blow out the candles on your pity party cake, quit thinking you're not as bad as someone else- YET- and do something for those who love you and most importantly- the person you will again love the mostyourself. The toughest words we can say are "I NEED HELP" This is the place to go. Thank you BRS for helping me help me!

    I'm still amazed at how much going to Behavioral Rehabilitation Services helped my sister. The treatment experience she had was wonderful. The place itself is beautiful with tons of open space outside and a nice comfortable feel inside. Having options regarding the different programs she could do and being able to choose for herself was a big thing for her. Having as much time as she needed to do it was also just as big. I don't know how much longer my sister would have lived if she hadn't gone to BRS.

    My sister went through the program and they helped her so much. She'd been using for 20 years but it got really bad 3 years before she went to BRS. She spent 6 months at BRS and really enjoyed her time there. They helped her understand so much about her drug addiction, not just from the time it got bad but for the long time before that.
