Self-Help Addiction Rehabilitation, Inc. (SHAR)

1852 West Grand Boulevard, Detroit, Michigan, 48208
SHAR is all about empowering people to take control of their lives. While helping thousands of people over decades, our experience has discovered the age-old irony- that you can only take and regain control of your life after you learn to let go. And herein, lies the problem; letting go or stopping. Whether your dilemma centers around alcohol, heroin, cocaine, prescription drugs or any combination of these or other drugs, at SHAR, we begin the process of change. From the start we teach and show you how your thoughts, attitudes and behaviors lead to and perpetuate your problems, and how working with us can provide you a way out.
