The Good

  • 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.

The Bad

  • 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.

The Bottom Line

Alpha Home is a good option for female patients who need drug rehabilitation. While its outpatient services are great for both women and men, its residential treatment is a more intense program and is geared specifically toward women and the goals they have as patients.

That being said, this program isn’t a great option for men who need more intense drug rehabilitation, and it is not a good option for patients who would need intervention or detox services. But for female clients who value the 12-step recovery model and the support of both individual counselors and support groups, Alpha Home is a recommended facility.
