Flint Odyssey House

Flint Odyssey House Flint Odyssey House offers a full array of recovery services including detox, residential, outpatient and recovery housing. Specialized services for pregnant and parenting individuals and couples.

The Odyssey Method of Treatment was designed and developed by Dr. Judianne Densen-Gerber JD.MD in the late sixties. Densen-Gerber believed that substance abuse disorders were the symptom of underlying psychological dysfunction, and that drug and alcohol abuse only camouflage the addicts psycho-social spiritual pathology. Dr. Densen-Gerber modified and enhanced the Therapeutic Community Model (TC) traditionally utilized for the treatment of mental health disorders. The Odyssey Method of Treatment is based on professionally supervised open group confrontation and peer accountability. Therefore Odyssey encourages personal growth, character development, and spiritual healing to replace drug dependency. The Odyssey Village has evolved through our need to offer residents a comprehensive and holistic form of treatment. The village concept recognizes addiction as a chronic problem that requires a long term relationship. The community or TC serves as a surrogate and/or extended family. It provides residents the opportunity to be adopted into a healthy family structure that may or may not be in place prior to treatment.

National Prevention Week continues with today’s theme of Preventing Youth Tobacco Use.

Nicotine in any form is highly addictive, and many who start using one form of nicotine transition to another.

NIDA’s 2020 Monitoring the Future survey showed that the number of teens who say they vape nicotine has leveled off but still remains high. The number of teens who say they smoked cigarettes in the past month declined significantly since the mid-90s and is now at the lowest it ever has been.

There’s usually very little water in vape liquid. The liquid is mostly made of oils & flavored chemicals. Scientists have even found tiny particles in vapor clouds that are the same as what’s found in pollution. So, breathing in a cloud of vapor is like filling your lungs with polluted air.
