Changes at BASES in Charlevoix


Long known as a teen center, officials at BASES Recovery Center are unveiling a name change for their facility along with new services for adults.


From its start in 1993, BASES has been a leading provider of substance use disorder counseling, helping clients learn life skills and achieve goals while abstaining from drug and alcohol use.

Recently, agency leaders changed the name from BASES Teen Center to BASES Recovery Center, adding outpatient counseling services for adults and adolescents seeking help with drug and alcohol use problems. In addition to individual counseling sessions, BASES Recovery Center offers twice weekly men’s and women’s group counseling sessions.


BASES counseling staff members are also working in local schools – Harbor Springs High School, Boyne City High School and the Morgan Shaw School in Boyne City – as part of the agency’s Life Skills Program.

Counseling staff members lead separate weekly groups for men and women in the Charlevoix County Jail, as well.


BASES also offers extensive drug testing services including 10-panel lab tests, 10-panel instant tests, long-term alcohol tests (EtG) and breathalyzers during all hours of operation. Drug testing services are utilized by businesses, families, schools and numerous court systems. For those having to drug test outside of our normal business hours, BASES may be able to accommodate their needs if arrangements are made in advance with BASES staff.


In late August, BASES Recovery Center plans to begin a Domestic Violence Batterers Intervention Program with weekly men’s group meetings.


BASES is a CARF-accredited facility and has been added to the provider panel for the Northern Michigan Regional Entity. With these changes, BASES is able to accept some publicly funded insurances like Medicaid, Healthy Michigan, MIChild and others.


For more information about these new services, call BASES at (231) 547-1144.
