Residential: Short- to Longer-Term

Residential Addiction Services

Pine Rest offers residential treatment services on our southeast Grand Rapids campus.

Persons experiencing an addiction can receive the necessary holistic tools, support and inspiration they need to achieve recovery within a healing, therapeutic environment. Specialized programming is available for persons who are involved in the criminal justice system. The goal is to prepare residents to live satisfying and productive lives, while maintaining sobriety.

All facilities are state-licensed and accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).

Freedom House

12-bed, residential addiction treatment service for women, aged 17 and up. Gender-specific treatment includes case management, individual and group therapy, stress management, spirituality counseling, parenting and relationship skills, nutrition and health, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dual diagnosis services and sexual trauma counseling. If approved, children up to age 8 may join their mother in treatment.

Velzen Center

The Velzen Center is home to several residential treatment programs for men, ages 18 and up.

Velzen Center has two residential treatment programs for men addicted to alcohol and other drugs, one through community placement agencies (such as network180) and one through the criminal justice system.

Programming is individualized and average length of stay is between 30 and 90 days. Services incorporate a strong understanding of addiction as a complex, chronic disease that affects physical, emotional, cognitive, relationship, and spiritual aspects of a person’s life. Programming also assists residents in establishing a substance- and crime-free lifestyle while entering the world of work and relationships, when appropriate. The programs use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), life skills training, relapse prevention, motivational interviewing, and 12-step programming to provide the resources for change. A specialized program for persons convicted of drunk driving are also available.

Veterans to Independence Program: VIP is a residential program designed for honorably discharged veterans who have a criminal sexual conduct charge and are experiencing homelessness. Therapeutic services are designed to address mental health and co-occurring substance use conditions, sexual conduct conditions, as well as address anticipated trauma history and other life issues common to both the homeless and veteran population.

Recovery Residence/Facility Based Housing: Recovery Residences are used to provide a safe, drug-free, and sober living arrangement for men who are in need of transitional housing and who are, most typically, early in their recovery process.

“The thought of recovering from an addiction can be overwhelming or seem impossible. The recovery path can seem long, scary and lonely. It may feel there are a lot of road blocks to hinder the process and the fear of failure lurks around every corner. Despite all these negative feelings, there is hope.”
