Corewell Health opens new addiction clinics in Ludington and Fremont

March 26, 2024

LUDINGTON — The Corewell Health Dependent Drug Stewardship Program continues to address increases in overdose rates across the State of Michigan.

There has been a concerning trend related to increases of drug overdose emergency department visits and EMS responses to drug overdoses in the Ludington and Fremont communities, states a press release from Corewell Health. While these increases are demonstrated in other communities as well, partnerships with the emergency departments in Ludington and Gerber have allowed Corewell Health to quickly increase the addiction medicine footprint to address those needs.

As a result, Corewell Health opened an addiction medicine clinic at the Ludington Visiting Specialty site at 7 Atkinson Dr., Suite 302 Wednesday, March 20, and will open one at the Gerber Visiting Specialty location at 230 W. Oak St. Wednesday, March 27.

Both locations will be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will have provider access to see immediate same day walk-ins.

The clinic also offers an urgent referral line at 616-391-6120 that can be accessed to engage a patient with same day Telehealth addiction medicine access.
