Skilled Substance Use Recovery at Livonia Woods

Michigan’s First Skilled Substance Use Recovery Program

Offered at Wellspring’s Livonia Woods campus, this voluntary short-term program is designed to help older adults in post-acute rehabilitation settings find their way to recovery.

At Wellspring, we want to walk alongside you as you recover physically — all the while, providing you with the support necessary to address and begin your journey toward recovery.

There are very few programs that focus on your unique needs as a person with a history of substance use who is just days removed from a medical crisis. Participation in our voluntary recovery program is for adults, age 55 and older, who want support for their substance use disorder (SUD) while receiving skilled rehabilitation services. As Michigan’s first provider of this important program, Wellspring is focused on supporting you and your family as you walk through your recovery journey.
