Yes! For 21 years, PNLH has provided independent recovery housing integrated in the Plymouth Canton community.

Various levels of monitoring does exist, but living in these recovery housing units allows clients to practice and internalize the recovery tools & skills learned in our treatment programs.
4) Do you treat clients with co-occurring mental health issues at PNLH?
It is our experience and expectation that the majority of clients that seek treatment at PNLH have a co-occurring mental health disorder. Over the past few years, over 81% of clients served referred by our largest funding source (SEMCA) were persons with co-occurring mental health disorders. We have embraced and integrated this reality into our clinical and administrative protocols. We have a psychiatrist as our medical director and masters-prepared therapists who are trained in assessing and integrating mental health treatment into our clinical services.
5) What funding sources do you take?
We welcome the opportunity to work with any funding source. Currently, we are approved for the provider panels of the following funding sources: SEMCA, Oakland County, City of Detroit, Washtenaw/Livingston (WCHO), HAP, BCBS, ValueOptions, Priority Health, Cigna, BCN, Con Gen, and more insurances are being added in the very near future. We accept private pay and can work with clients to meet their fiscal needs. Do not let payment be an obstacle to treatment. Call us and we can help remove funding source concerns.
