Battle Creek, MI – Drug Testing
Life and People in Battle Creek
More than two decades ago, Battle Creek resident Mike Dezotell died of a drug overdose. He was legally dead for six minutes before being revived—but that wasn’t enough for the former heroin user to step away from his addiction. That change didn’t happen until many years later when he hit rock bottom after spending the night in a dumpster and narrowly avoiding being crushed by a garbage truck. Following that experience, he says he finally quit drugs forever.
He’s now focused on raising awareness among others who have nearly lost their lives, letting them know that they have options and spreading the word that “You do not have to be sick anymore to get better. There are drugs you can take.”
Community Efforts to Address Drug Problems in Battle Creek
Battle Creek’s Women’s Life Recovery Program, which operates under Haven of Life Ministries, helps women overcome their struggles with addiction. Unlike many other recovery programs, which typically last only for a short time, this program lasts for nine to 12 months. This allows the women plenty of time to overcome their addictions, deal with self-defeating behaviors, and live up to their potential to successfully live and work in the community.
The services provided include group and individual therapy, case management, access to the local library, physical fitness opportunities, referrals to community resources, and more. Women are also welcome to bring their children with them and can live on-site in their own rooms with their children. In some cases, this prevents the children from having to go into foster care while their mothers seek help.
Substance Abuse Trends and Statistics for the City of Battle Creek
In August 2022, Calhoun County installed a Narcan vending machine at the Battle Creek Homeless Shelter at 209 East Michigan Avenue. The kits are free, and the shelter is open 24/7, allowing for easy access. This move came in response to the area’s consistently high overdose rates. In Calhoun County, the number of drug overdose deaths increased by 21% between 2019 and 2020 and another 13% between 2020 and 2021.
Despite these efforts, the area continues to have problems. In April 2023, officials warned residents of a spike in overdose deaths in the Kalamazoo area, which is only about 25 miles from Battle Creek. Within a 24-hour period, there were six drug-associated deaths and more than 12 non-fatal overdoses, which is significantly higher than average. In most cases, the area sees about 1.5 drug-related deaths per week.
