- Gender-specific residential treatment
- Outpatient options for both genders
Gender-Specific Residential Treatment
One unique aspect of Alpha Home’s residential program is that it’s only for women. The program uses the 12-step recovery model and provides resources such as anger management classes, art therapy, and individual therapy to help women work through substance abuse. With groups, patients can also make plans to avoid relapses and set goals to accomplish anything that courts or families may have asked them to do while in rehab.
Outpatient Options For Both Genders
While Alpha Home’s residential center is just for women, its outpatient services cater to both men and women. This program also uses the 12-step recovery model and includes individual therapy sessions. Both the inpatient and outpatient recovery programs help individuals work toward becoming stable and independent. With the support of counselors and fellow patients, individuals can avoid feeling alone and work toward their goals.
- Women-only residential program
- Lack of onsite detoxification
- No professional interventions
Women-Only Residential Program
Perhaps the most prominent downside to Alpha Home’s residential program is that it excludes male patients. Since its inpatient treatment caters only to women, men are left to recover through Alpha Home’s outpatient program or with another organization altogether.
Lack of Onsite Detoxification
In addition, Alpha Home does not offer onsite detoxification. It does provide some medical assessment and has a clinic where patients can get some help. But as far detoxing, which is a difficult and sometimes fearful part of recovery, patients will not receive help from Alpha Home.
No Professional Interventions
Alpha Home also doesn’t offer professional interventions to get an individual to come to its facility. While Alpha Home will give some advice to families who want a family member to start rehabilitation, the organization itself won’t come out and professionally intervene.
