Sanford Founder Rae Green with Rachael Ruiz

We had an interesting visitor at Sanford House at Cherry Street for Women. Wood TV, Eight West host, Rachael Ruiz, joined Sanford Founder, Rae Green, for a tour and conversation. They talked about the prevalence of addiction in Michigan. And discussed Sanford’s unique take on treatment. Providing evidence-based therapy in a homelike setting – and treating men and women separately.


One of the most important things is that we’re talking about it [addiction]. And that is urgent in changing the narrative about the disease of addiction. Rae Green, JD, LPC, CAADC
