Accepts Most Major Insurance
The costs for addiction recovery services are often very expensive, though the cost of Michael’s House services is not disclosed. This is why insurance coverage can be a huge benefit to those patrons who want to go through the process as it will ease the financial burden. Many treatment facilities are either do not accept many insurances, have limited coverage, or do not disclose that information.
Michael’s House accepts most major insurance companies including Humana, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, United Healthcare, and more. Having the insurance information available to potential visitors of the facility makes the whole decision process much easier for patrons.
Every addict who goes through a treatment process at Michael’s House will have the option to enroll in the alumni program after completion with the recovery program. This is a program that is designed to help addicts continue on their road to recovery and have lifelong sobriety. Relapse is a very common problem for any addiction and Michael’s House is dedicated to doing what they can to prevent as many as possible.
The alumni program allows previous patrons to connect on a regular basis for support. This is especially crucial on challenging days when the temptation to slip back into substance abuse is very high. A patron can even get a counseling session over the phone if necessary to ward of relapse. This program is very beneficial to those patrons and not always a part of the recovery process that is focused on.

Lack of Personalized Treatment Options
In recent years, Michael’s House experienced incredible growth that allowed them to expand how many patrons that could be accommodated in the facilities. This is great because the staff is able to help a much larger number of addicts towards recovery. But there are some downsides because the treatment cannot be as personalized as other, smaller rehab facilities. For example, patrons of the men’s facility only get two individual counseling sessions per week. The rest of their treatment will come in group settings. This type of treatment will (and has worked) for many addicts but may not be ideal for others who need more specified help.
As with many other rehab facilities across the industry, Michael’s House does not provide any upfront information about the cost for the treatment services offered. Every addiction is different, so every treatment process will be as well, which is why estimates are not given. But since this is such a large expense and investment, it is very important for potential patrons to understand exactly what they will be required to pay for. This information is important in the decision making process.
