Great Lakes Men’s Rehab Admissions
Is our Rehab the right program for you or your loved one?
- You keep taking a drug after it’s no longer needed for a health problem.
- You need more and more of a substance to get the same effects (called “tolerance”), and you can take more before you feel an effect.
- You feel strange when the drug wears off. You may be shaky, depressed, sick to your stomach, sweat, or have headaches. You may also be tired or not hungry. In severe cases, you could even be confused, have seizures, or run a fever.
- You cannot keep employment.
- You’ve begun having trouble doing normal daily things, like cooking or working.
- You borrow or steal money to pay for drugs.
- You hide the drug use or the effect it is having on you from others.
- You’re having trouble getting along with co-workers, teachers, friends, or family members.
- You look different. You may have bloodshot eyes, bad breath, shakes or tremors, frequent bloody noses, or you may have gained or lost weight.
- Changes in personality and behavior like a lack of motivation, irritability, and agitation.
- Bloodshot eyes and frequent bloody noses, shakes, tremors, or slurred speech.
- Unusual need for money; financial problems.

Begin The Recovery Program Intake Process
If you or a loved one are ready to take a step towards recovery and rehabilitation from drug or alcohol addiction, please get in touch with one of our intake specialists to begin the process or get more information. We are here to help.
Intake varies from 24 hours to 2 weeks depending on the time needed to verify documents or if detox is needed. In processing an application, we consider:
- Willingness of the applicant to participate in the program/interest in changing
- Mental health/medications
- Medical condition/medications
- Legal status, past and present
- Outstanding warrants
- Funding eligibility
- Level of care required
- Location or residency
Please note that we are a voluntary program and not a lock-down facility. The client needs to want to be here. They need to admit to us that they have a problem and want help.
For Friends And Family:
Although we cannot give advice on what to say to every addict since every individual is different, but we do recommend that you speak the truth with love, care, and concern and NOT in condemnation or criticism. Please be aware that we do not do interventions.
We can refer 3rd party interventionists to you, so please call us if you need that help. If your loved one is suicidal or mentally unstable, please take the situation seriously and contact your local hospital as a first step, or call 911. Do not wait!
A Willingness and Desire to Get Help!
The applicant must be willing to invest the needed time (usually a year) and effort into their life to finally get freedom from addiction. We must hear willingness from the applicant to get help, and that cannot come from friends or relatives.
Remember, much of the cost of the applicant’s one year stay at one of our centers is covered by donations from the community and we have limited beds, so we need to make sure every applicant is prepared for the challenge.
Call or fill in the inquiry form to begin the process.
If it appears that the program may be a good fit for the individual, we will direct you to our Application to download and fill in.
Send in the Application.
Once the application is received, our Intake Counselors will connect with the Applicant to make further arrangements, including financial commitments and attending a medical detox, if needed. Please note we will not make repeated attempts to reach the Applicant. In most cases, we will leave it to the Applicant to connect with us on a specific day and time or to visit the center.
Should they fail to do that, the application may be denied. Follow-thru is all seen as part of the Applicant’s willingness and desire to attend the program.
