Review by Contributors


Phoenix House Inc. offers residential and outpatient substance abuse treatment services at several facilities in Michigan’s Western Upper Peninsula. This facility in the center of the small town of Bessemer, in the far northwest area of the state, offers outpatient treatment for adults, teens, and seniors struggling with substance abuse, mental health disorders, and co-occurring disorders.


Treatment uses evidence-based practices including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) on a one-on-one basis. The center uses holistic practices and aims to treat the mind, body, and spirit, and integrates its mental health treatment into that for substance abuse. The facility’s website also states that support is available in the areas of life skills development, medical needs, psychological needs, and spiritual growth, however, details of these offerings are not provided at the time of this writing.


Phoenix House’s staff have been in the substance abuse field since the 1970s. The founder is certified alcohol and drug abuse counselor and licensed professional counselor, while another counselor is a limited license bachelor of social work. The single individual polled by to date on the staff’s level of training and experience gave it four out of five stars.


Review coverage of this facility is limited at the time of this writing. The single alumni review submitted to to date was negative. T.I. gave the facility just two stars for its overall effectiveness, and wrote: “Lacks experience. Does not work with clients to obtain funding. Very expensive.”

At the time of this writing, secondary review sites yielded no coverage of this facility.


The single review from a loved one submitted to to date was very positive. “It helped my loved one get sober. It helped teach him other ways to deal with problems,” the anonymous reviewer told, indicating that they would strongly recommend the facility and could think of no weaknesses in the program. They awarded Phoenix House three out of five stars for its holistic options and four stars in almost all 14 of the other evaluated treatment metrics, including its family program, counseling options, and treatment for co-occurring disorders.


According to the facility’s Twitter page, Phoenix House accepts Upper Peninsula Health Plan and Blue Cross Blue Shield for substance abuse treatment. The program also offers financial assistance covering up to 100 percent of the cost of treatment.
