The treatment program at Michael’s House is nationally recognized for our integrated and evidence-based methods that have produced proven results for individuals with addiction and mental health disorders. According to an independent DDCAT assessment by a member of the Dartmouth Psychiatric Research Center, we are in the top 5% of addiction treatment programs for our ability to treat co-occurring disorders.
Foundations Treatment Model
Our treatment model utilizes Motivational Interviewing methods and philosophies and recognizes Stages of Change in the recovery process. We emphasize concurrent treatment for substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders. Our evidence-based, integrative methods have been proven more effective than traditional drug and alcohol treatment methods in a five-year research study using the Foundations Treatment Model. At Michael’s House we help people restore their lives by embracing a way of life based upon the 12-Step principles of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), Narcotics Anonymous (NA) and Dual Recovery Anonymous (DRA).
Alcohol abuse is a common problem among teenagers and adults alike in the United States. The most common substance of abuse despite its legal status, alcohol destroys careers, lives, families, finances, health and more. Alcohol abuse is not only the precursor to alcohol addiction, but it is often impossible to walk away from without alcohol detox and addiction treatment at a comprehensive alcohol rehab.
Drug addiction is a condition that affects millions of individuals and their families every day. The devastation that drug addiction leaves in its wake can be felt in relationships, careers and the health of the individual struggling with the disease. Sadly, the majority of people who suffer from a drug addiction will never seek the help they need. Instead of contacting a drug rehab facility, they will remain isolated, falling deeper and deeper into the cycle of addiction over the course of time.
At Michael’s House, we provide care for people who have both mental illness issues and addiction issues. Often, people with mental illnesses need to obtain targeted help from dedicated professionals in formal treatment programs. Using personally tailored programs our therapists work closely with clients, ensuring that their wants and needs are respected, and that they aren’t pushed into situations in which they don’t feel comfortable.
Many drug rehab and alcohol rehab programs offer treatment that deals with addiction but not the other emotional and mental issues that the majority of individuals with substance abuse issues are also facing. Consider the following fact: Up to 65.5% of individuals with substance abuse/dependency issues have at least one co-occurring mental disorder, and 51% of individuals with a mental disorder also have at least one co-occurring addictive disorder (Kessler, 1994). Michael’s House understands that everyone who enters the program brings their own unique set of circumstances -which is why the counselors and staff provide individualized care that treats the entire person in mind, body and spirit.
