Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Can a client come for Phase II, sober living, or outpatient services without completing Phase I? Yes!  We want to provide the appropriate level of care for each client based on where he or she is currently in recovery.  Phase II clients live on our main campus while sober living clients live at the Phoenix Concept or Gaylord Apartments.  Unfortunately, the Phoenix Concept is an all male facility.  Our Gaylord Apartments are open to female clients, but we can only accept clients there if we do not have a waiting list of Sobriety House clients.
  2. Will Medicaid cover my treatment? Medicaid will cover outpatient treatment.  If a client is coming for Intensive Outpatient or Traditional Outpatient, Medicaid may cover it.  Unfortunately, Medicaid does not cover inpatient services at this time, so our Phase I and Phase II would not be covered.
  3. Does Sobriety House accept any insurance?  Currently, the only insurance we accept is Kaiser Permanente.  We may be expanding this in the future.
  4. Does Sobriety House offer payment plans to clients? We have been able to offer payment plans in the past on a case-by-case basis.  Our Intake Coordinator is the best resource for payment plans.
  5. Does a client have to live in a certain area to be eligible for Sobriety House services? Not necessarily.  Private pay clients can be accepted from anywhere, including out of state.  If a client is looking for sliding scale fees based on income, he or she would need to live in one of the counties in our catchment area.  If a client is going through another agency to get to our services, it would depend on if the agency they are using will pay for services at Sobriety House.
  6. Does Sobriety House offer detox services? No, we do not have any medical personnel on staff to offer detox services.  We can refer to other local agencies that offer detox programs.  Once through detox, a client can then begin services at Sobriety House.
  7. Can Sobriety House take clients with mental health diagnoses? It depends on the client and the mental health diagnosis.  If a client is compliant with his or her medication and stable, we can usually accept these clients.  Clients not on medication would need to seek services for their mental health before coming to Sobriety House.
  8. Can I bring my child with me into the program? We are not able to accept children into our programs.  We believe that the most successful environment for our clients is one in which they can focus solely on themselves and their motivation to change.  We understand the importance of the relationship between parents and children and welcome children to come visit their parent at Sobriety House.  If you need services that allow children full-time, we can refer to other agencies.
  9. Does Sobriety House offer Opiate Replacement Therapy? We do not offer Opiate Replacement Therapy to clients, but we are able to accept clients that are receiving it from another agency.
  10. How long does a client need to be sober before coming to Sobriety House? Sobriety House does not have a set time that a person must be sober before entering most of our programs.  The only requirement we have for new clients is that they be completely sober at the time of their intake/assessment.
  11. Will I have a roommate?  Yes, most of our clients will have a roommate during their time in our programs.  We find this ensures a safer environment for our clients while they are in recovery.
