Our program

Sparrow’s substance abuse inpatient unit is a 14-bed unit that treats individuals 18 and older with an alcohol or drug problem that impairs biological, social, family or occupational functioning.

We understand that substance abuse is a serious illness that requires compassionate care in a comfortable setting. Anyone can fall victim to substance abuse – but not everyone can beat it on their own. We can help.

The substance abuse inpatient unit is part of Sparrow’s behavioral health services department – mid-Michigan's leader in quality and compassionate mental health treatment.
