The Good

  • Employment preparation
  • Lengthy client rights
  • Medicaid accepted

Employment Preparation

Upon admission to Alpha Home, a client undergoes a comprehensive assessment, upon which an individualized treatment plan is derived. What is unique about the treatment plan is that it could include GED classes and job readiness preparation, a unique feature for a treatment center. It is evident that the Home believes in preparing its clients for successful, productive lives upon treatment. Clients also have the ability to participate in education groups with topics such as recovery skills, relapse prevention, healthy relationships, anger management, 12-step introduction, and parenting skills.

Lengthy Client Rights

Alpha Home provides a very lengthy list of client rights to show that it respects and protects its clients. The rights protect against physical harm, allows free communication outside with people outside of the facility, and gives clients the ability to refuse treatment at any time. The Client Bill of Rights provides 19 items for outpatient and 23 items for the residential program.

Medicaid Accepted

Many treatment centers do not accept Medicaid insurance because coverage is not provided. This is a unique feature to Alpha Home in that the center does accept traditional Medicaid. It is recommended to contact the Home directly to learn more of your coverage options.

The Bad

  • Pricing not available online
  • Limited accommodations
  • Success rate not shared

Pricing Not Available Online

Unfortunately, if you are shopping around for a drug treatment program that fits within your budget, it is difficult to compare offerings when pricing is not available online. Alpha Home does not share how much treatment costs on its website. It does however accept nine insurances. You can learn more about your pricing information and even discuss applying for funding by speaking with an admissions representative.

Limited Accommodations

Alpha Home has two homes for women to live in during their rehabilitation. The Mulberry home has 31 beds and the Camden home has 16 beds. Alpha Home also provides a transitional home with six beds and other centers for recovery support. As space is limited, it is recommended to reach out to the Home to learn more about available openings. Alpha Home does state that there may be a waiting period for admission into the residential program. This may be a downside if you are looking for immediate treatment.

Success Rate Not Shared

Some customers are looking for a treatment program with a high success rate. However, Alpha Home does not share its success rate online. In fact, the company believes that those who complete treatment learn things that can assist them in staying clean and sober. It is not always a guarantee that was is learned is applied appropriately and therefore doesn't guarantee success. While valid, it is difficult to know how effective Alpha Home's treatment programs are for past clients.

The Bottom Line

If you are in the San Antonio area and are looking for drug rehabilitation center with individualized treatment plans, then Alpha Home could meet your needs. A few insurance plans are accepted at Alpha Home, including Medicaid. Alpha Home also prepares its clients with successful reintroduction into the world through job preparation, and setting goals with Child Protective Services and criminal justice entities. The center also believes in participating with family members in the treatment process and includes playgrounds for visiting children. Keep in mind that pricing and the Home's success rate are not shared online.
