Foundations Recovery Network (FRN) took the wraps off its ninth outpatient treatment center, Foundations Detroit, on Thursday. The facility, located in Royal Oak, Mich., will begin admitting patients June 1.

The opening of Foundations Detroit continues a growth period for Foundations since the company was acquired by Universal Health Services (UHS) in September.

Foundations Detroit Director Steve Wiland and his staff welcomed visitors for a symposium and guided tours on Thursday. Wiland was recruited by FRN to lead Foundations Detroit, and officially started with the company in March. As a 27-year veteran of the behavioral health industry, Wiland says he was attracted by the Foundations approach to treating co-occurring disorders.

“I’ve been a very strong advocate for building good, effective, integrated treatment for co-occurring disorders,” Wiland says. “I was content to continue trying to move that needle forward and when Foundations came and asked me to consider this position, I had to find out who Foundations was. And what I found out was not only are they a treatment provider that permits good integrated care using the best evidenced-based practices, they demand it.”

Foundations Detroit will provide integrated outpatient treatment for substance abuse and co-occurring mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, pain issues and psychological trauma, using dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and physician-directed medication management. Services include yoga, meditation, art therapy and massage.

For those in the region who require a higher level of care, Foundations opened Skywood Recovery, a residential treatment facility in Augusta, Mich., earlier this year.
