Online Addiction Services in Northern Michigan

Online Addiction Services in Northern Michigan

Pine Rest is now offering addiction counseling with a Certified Addiction Counselor through an online video connection using a computer, tablet or smart phone to individuals living in Antrim, Benzie, Grand Traverse, Kalkaska, Leelanau, Manistee, Mason and Wexford Counties. We’re also providing local peer recovery coaches to help support the recovery process and a group location is now open in the Bear Lake-Onekama area.

At Pine Rest, we believe addiction is a chronic disease of the brain and those diagnosed should receive the highest quality treatment with dignity, respect and compassion. Through this new program we hope to serve individuals in these counties with few services available due to clinician shortages or who have difficulty traveling to our Traverse City Clinic.

Most insurance policies cover the cost of these services. Financial and technology assistance may be available.

Online Individual and Group Therapy

Similar to the individual and group therapy offered in our Traverse City Clinic, some individual and group therapy can be provided via Telehealth Services.

Clients have the option of using their own device, if available. Otherwise, a laptop or tablet may be provided so they can attend group meetings or counseling sessions.

In addition, groups with video conferencing equipment are available in these counties so persons can meet at a location nearer to them and participate in a group session without traveling to Traverse City.

Recovery Coach

Individuals receiving services will be assigned a recovery coach to provide encouragement, case management, skills building and support throughout their recovery process.

Most insurance policies cover the cost of services. Financial and technology assistance may be available.

To learn more, please call 866.852.4001.

“As a native Northern Michigan resident, I know how hard it is to find ‘specialized’ treatments, the time and money it costs to travel, or to look for services outside your community in order to keep your care confidential. These difficulties can all be addressed with the blending of technology and therapy.” –Pine Rest Awarded Grant
