Alpha Home has been in business for over 50 years and is a 501c(3) non-profit organization serving the San Antonio community. Alpha Home is a gender-specific rehabilitation program dedicated to treating women, exclusively. Its residential, outpatient, and intervention programs are accredited by CARF and are licensed by the Texas Department of State Health Services. The home uses a 12-Step program in a residential to assist women towards long-term sobriety. Alpha Home also has an Outpatient Treatment Program for both men and women.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
