Making the Call

Here are some of the topics our Admissions Coordinator may discuss with you during the initial conversation:

  • Travel arrangements for you or your loved one to and from treatment
  • Your insurance policy and what benefits may help cover the cost of treatment. Michael's House accepts many private insurances and can also work with you on a payment plan.
  • Recommended programs, length of stay and accommodations.
  • Getting help from a sober escort or family mediator, especially if you are calling on behalf of a loved one.


We care about your unique situation and your needs. At Michael's House, our goal is to provide lifetime recovery solutions.

25 Years of Evidence-Based Treatment

When Arlene Rosen lost her son Michael to a drug overdose, she started a treatment center so that she could help spare other families from the pain she experienced. Michael's House opened in 1989 and has been serving patients and their families through comprehensive integrated treatment for over two decades.

In 2006, Foundations Recovery Network added Michael's House to its family of treatment centers, supporting Arlene's vision and expanding the center to accommodate more patients. Once a facility with 24 beds, Michael's House now has 120 beds—and has helped countless men and women find the path to long-term recovery from addiction and mental health conditions.

“We tried lots of other programs. He had case workers, doctors, and they would send him to other programs. All of which failed. It was fortunate he finally made it to Michael's House."

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).

At its core Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is designed to help people understand and adjust their thoughts and emotional responses. In this innovative treatment style, the individual works closely with a cognitive therapist to develop real-world strategies for dealing with the issues they face during recovery from alcohol or drug addiction. With DBT, the individual is able to build their self-esteem, discover how to resolve conflict, and generally enjoying a healthier, more fulfilling life.

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.

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.
