Who We Are

Our Story

Liberty House Recovery Center is a fully licensed, 13-bed inpatient medical facility with a psychiatrist, nurse practitioners, therapists, registered nurses and medical personnel available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  

The luxury center is located on a 34-acre country estate in Fenton, Michigan, 60 miles northwest of Detroit. Once home to lawyer and land speculator William M. Fenton in the mid-1800s, Liberty House’s elegant manor house and modern additions combine the concierge-level feel of a boutique hotel with top-tier medical treatment.

Liberty House Recovery center was founded in 2022 by CEO Dr. Susan Abed. With personal experience assisting with recovery of others and 30+ years working with patients, Dr. Abed realized the Midwest lacked a California-style recovery center with a goal to:

Recovery at Liberty House is supported with a private chef, private and semi-private rooms, woodland walking paths, yoga and sauna areas, a salon, computer lab, game room and gym, computer lab and WiFi accessibility, as well as spaces for group therapy or one-on-one counseling. Liberty House offers a flexible device policy, based on individual needs, including work accommodation.

Medical staff is able to care for guests from initial detoxification with the most advanced pharmacological and psychological support to the families through family counseling with the goal of building family trust and rebuilding an addiction-free lifestyle. Programs typically last around 30 days but can be custom-tailored to specific needs. Liberty House Recovery Center works with most major insurance carriers as well as self-paying guests. The Admissions Team is available 24-7 to assist those seeking help, including transportation or a travelling companion, if needed. And, always, privacy and discretion is key.

As a valued and active member of Michigan’s dynamic community for over 25 years, Dr. Abed has spent her life practicing compassion and using her expertise to help both children and adults grow their self-esteem, self-worth, and confidence.

By bringing the latest and most advanced evidence-based therapies to Michigan, Dr. Abed not only wants every client to achieve happiness through long-lasting sobriety but to also help reduce the stigma associated with addiction and other mental health problems.
