The treatment philosophy at Michael’s House incorporates a variety of proven-successful clinical components to create a comprehensive, integrative Treatment Program.
The components of our unique, integrated approach to alcohol rehab and drug rehab include:
- Detox -Getting the harmful toxins associated with drugs and alcohol out of the body so that the rest of rehab can begin with a lower risk of relapse.
- Individual therapy -Meeting one-on-one with caring counselors to better understanding of the root causes of drug and alcohol use- and develop a strategy for rehabilitation.
- Group therapy -A chance to learn from other individuals who are going through similar circumstances -and gain support and strength while listening and sharing.
Our drug rehab program is founded on The Foundations Treatment Model, which utilizes Motivational Interviewing methods and philosophies and recognizes Stages of Change in the recovery process.
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).

Why a Comprehensive Treatment Program is So Important
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.
A Proven Record of Success!
Michael’s House offers treatment for addictive disorders and co-occurring mental disorders together. 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.
