What is Our Program?

One of the first programs in the state of Michigan to offer this level of care, PNLH’s IOPD program offers 4.5 hours per day of group therapy, 5 days per week with an individual session by a master’s prepared therapist at least weekly. (During COVID19, these services are conducted via video conferencing software PNLH has purchased. Our housing units have WIFI and some laptops furnished by PNLH to expedite video conferencing). Programs vary, but include day program with mixed gender, an evening program for men only, and another day program for women’s specific IOPD services. When services are back on site, PNLH’s shuttle van drives to and from the housing locations located about 10 minutes away from the office, to bring clients to the office and return them home at the end of the program day.

What Does the building look like – where will I be staying?
Our IOPD office is located in downtown Plymouth, walking distance to the downtown park. PNLH occupies approximately 7,500 square feet of office space that includes numerous group and therapist offices. Only clinical services are offered here and no one resides at the office location. Living arrangements (or domicile -which is the “D” in IOPD) are in furnished apartments in the area. The spacious apartments are typically 2 bedrooms, 1 bath and each unit has 4 people max (for a 2-bedroom, 2 people per room). No bunk beds are used at PNLH. We strive to maintain a safe, healing environment that is both comfortable and inviting.

PNLH will provide the linen, towels, pillows, toilet paper, paper towel and cooking and eating utensils at the housing units.
