About Us

The Energy of Recovery


Our Program

Our program is based on the therapeutic community method of treatment. The therapeutic community represents a highly structured environment with defined boundaries, both moral and ethical. It employs community and peer-imposed challenges, as well as earned advancement of status and privileges as part of the recovery and growth process. Being a part of something greater than oneself is an especially important factor in facilitating positive growth. Our participants are culturally, economically, and unique, which is essential in the therapeutic community treatment process. Each person — no matter their race, ethnicity, gender, or economic background — brings their own unique value and experience to the Village.

Flint, Saginaw, and Port Huron Odyssey House drug and alcohol treatment programs operate as the foundation of the Odyssey Village’s holistic and comprehensive recovery management service array. The Village recognizes addiction as a chronic problem that requires long-term relationships through a therapeutic community that extends beyond basic substance abuse treatment.



Flint, Saginaw and Port Huron Odyssey Houses are a multi-service modified therapeutic community specializing in the treatment of substance use disorders (SUD) and mental health (MH) disorders. Its mission is to provide intervention, primary and secondary substance abuse prevention/treatment and mental health services to the community at large, with a focus on the indigent population.


Our overall goal is to indirectly prevent ten people from abusing drugs for every one person who is treated, with a principle goal of interrupting the intergenerational cycle of poverty, violence, criminality and substance abuse by returning productive members of society back to families, developing stable families, safe neighborhoods and providing community education for a more productive society.
