Addiction Treatment Services Philosophy
ATS is dedicated to supporting people who are struggling with chemical dependency issues. The drug and alcohol treatment center doesn’t focus on addiction as an illness, but instead regards each individual as a person with the strength, courage, and will to overcome their addiction and grow as a result. Residential treatment and sober living isn’t easy to live through, but ATS is committed to showing its clients that the rewards outweigh the obstacles.
Areas of Specialization
This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
Meet the Staff
Hindbaugh has a vision that ATS can and should be the most innovative and creative substance abuse agency in the state. Since taking the helm at ATS, Hindbaugh has helped foster a culture of professionalism and an expectation of high quality services that is all too often lacking in the substance abuse field.
Baranski's interest in addiction stems from a healthcare standpoint and he strives to raise awareness to the physical toll substance abuse can have on the human body. He also demonstrates knowledge and interest in the economic and financial aspects of addiction and how politics will affect addicts and employees working with addiction in the future.

ABOUT ADDICTION TREATMENT SERVICES
Addiction Treatment Services (ATS) is located in Traverse City, Mich., a quaint resort town on the shores of Lake Michigan. ATS offers a variety of programs for men and women struggling with substance abuse, including medical detox, gender-specific residential services, outpatient, and drug testing services. In addition, ATS owns and operates four sober living homes for men and one for women, all located in Traverse City.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Addiction Treatment Services does not focus on addiction as an illness, but rather on a holistic approach of empowering clients to lead fulfilling lives. The facility’s website notes that all levels of treatment are trauma-informed and evidence-based.
Although the length of treatment is determined by each client’s individual needs, residents typically stay at the facility for 28 days. The residential program includes a blend of individual counseling, group therapy, skill-building groups, and experiential activities. The rehab’s proximity to shopping, coffee shops, and churches is designed to encourage community reintegration as a part of recovery.
The outpatient program offers individual, group, and family counseling, plus groups on anger management, co-occurring disorders, Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT), relapse prevention, and more. Gambling addiction counseling is available as an outpatient option. If further support is necessary, clients can live in one of ATS’ gender-specific sober residences.
According to the facility’s website, the treatment team includes doctors, therapists, nurses, care coordinators, and social workers. There’s also a nurse practitioner on staff.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Phoenix Hall, the women’s residence, accommodates up to 12 women and is located within walking distance to Grand Traverse Bay, while Dakoske House, the men’s facility, has 28 beds. Most rooms sleep two people. Both residences are suburban homes on tree-lined streets, with large front porches.
