What makes our program unique:
Unlike other programs that focus on short term and brief intervention treatment, Alpha Home offers a continuum of care model. We provide longer lengths of stay during the critical first months of recovery. Lengths of stay vary and are based upon individual needs. Typically, most clients engage in a minimum of 60 days for residential treatment and 4 months of outpatient treatment.
Additionally, all clients may participate in the Alumnae Program following completion. The Alumnae Program offers ongoing fellowship and peer support that can last a lifetime.

AlumnaeThe Alpha Home Alumnae Association is an all-volunteer organization whose mission is to assist and mentor women in recovery, to help women stay in recovery by providing resources to meet their recovery goals, to offer continued support through fellowship, and to present opportunities to serve and enrich their communities.
