When we say that Sanford House is a place where "town and country meet", we are expressing our philosophy and our mission. We believe that recovery incorporates self exploration, represented by the work we do within the walls of the treatment center. We also believe that recovery is an opportunity to rekindle previous interests, as well as generate newfound enjoyments. Sanford House is uniquely situated to provide an urban experience, near many "real life" downtown locations. We are also close to numerous state parks and walking trails. These natural, out of doors, sites give practical application to our therapies.
Our treatment facility is small (ten bed), intimate and comfortable, and gender specific. Because of this, we are able to focus on individual client care. Our staff of addiction professionals promise state of the art, clinical therapies. Similarly, our wellness staff creates engaging activities and robust physical excursions. We take into consideration, all our client's needs and help them explore new enthusiasms such as: art therapy and acupuncture. We also provide a forum to express and renew their previous passions.
Our online magazine, Excursions, was created as a resource for those in recovery. The magazine provides up to date articles, health and fitness advice, scientific breakthroughs, reader's questions, editor's picks, photos and more. Excursions serves as a link to our clients after they leave treatment. And it is an important part of our aftercare program.

We are located 11 miles from Gerald R. Ford International Airport and close to the downtown Amtrak station. Also, there are hotels and child-friendly activities nearby, for our clients' family visitations. Sanford House is the best of all worlds - town and country. Because we are close to the Great Lakes, Up North and numerous city and state parks, while being in an urban setting. This gives us a variety of treatment options and activities, exposing our client's to the "real life" situations they will encounter after they leave us, while in the safety of treatment.
In addition, women attending intensive outpatient services (IOP) and outpatient services have private parking. IOP clients have group sessions in a historic, Carriage House on site.
“Much of what I learned at Sanford House takes on new meaning as I accumulate experiences as a newly sober person. My time at Sanford has served as the foundation for rebuilding the life I systematically destroyed during my active drinking. I am so thankful to the Sanford family for the new start you gave me...”
