Substance Abuse Counseling

Struggling with addiction?  Addiction is a complex disease that negatively affects every aspect of a person’s life.  The primary goal of treatment at Livingston County Catholic Charities is to assist the client towards recovery from chemical dependence and its impact on healthy daily functioning.  An individual who engages in substance abuse treatment is expected to maintain abstinence. For 24 hour substance abuse case management services, call Jessica, Clinical Case Manager, at 517-375-1652.

Program Components:

  • Comprehensive Individual Assessment
  • Treatment Planning
  • Individual and Group Therapy
  • Community Support
  • Family Therapy

Treatment is designed to deal with issues which hinder a person from moving forward in their life and to enhance their ability to develop healthy daily functioning.

Co-Occurring Disorders:  At times, some alcohol and drug abusers also experience a diagnosed mental health disorder.  Trained therapists are able to work with individuals experiencing dual diagnosis.  A client with a dual diagnosis, when determined necessary, may be referred to the agency psychiatrist for a psychiatric assessment and medication monitoring.

New client forms MUST be filled out, printed and handed in to the receptionist at first appointment.  LCCC will NOT accept paperwork by e-mail, USB drive or other means.


For an appointment call 517-545-5944 and an Intake Coordinator will assist you with scheduling your appointment.  If it is an urgent matter or after hours, contact Community Mental Health at 800-615-1245 or go to the nearest emergency room.
