Bay Area Consultants, Inc. began operating in 1988.  Services were provided to court-ordered drunk drivers  and for others who have been affected, and were still suffering from  the effects of a loved ones addiction to alcohol and/or other  mood-altering substances. Founded by  Susan K. Badgerow (current  CEO). Her husband, Randy Badgerow, who started working at the agency in August of  2000, (both pictured on left) is Executive Director.  The agency is licensed by the State of Michigan Licensing & Regulations Department (LARA)

We also provided a children's group for 8 -12 year old children who were affected by parental addiction. We  later relocated to Bay City and Saginaw, Michigan in 1990 and continued  to provide the most of the same services and added new programs.

The services provided to Bay &  Saginaw counties and the surrounding areas (Arenac, Midland, Gladwin,  and Tuscola counties) were substance abuse counseling, prevention and  education. B.A.C. later added anger management programs, and drug testing.
