Guest House admits clergy and men and women religious who suffer from alcohol or drug abuse, compulsive eating, compulsive gambling or spending or experiencing difficulties related to chemical use.
Through our Intervention Assistance Program, we can help you get someone started on the road to recovery, whether it’s early or late in the disease process. The program is designed to cut through denial and help clergy and men and woman religious who think they need it.
Designed to provide separate and specialized care for men and women religious, the 105-acre campus In Lake Orlon, Michigan, supports advanced-care technology while providing a tranquil envlronment for healing and recovery in two state-of-the-art residential treatment centers.
Authorized representatives may make referrals of the diocese or religious community, primary treatment centers, physicians, or other concerned individuals. Priests, deacons, seminarians, or women religious can also contact us themselves.
The bishop or other religious leadership must approve the admission.
Guest House clients’ daily schedule and rhythm are centered on learning about the brain disease of addiction through various lectures/ discussions, individual and group therapies, spiritual direction, and alternative approaches such as tai chi, auricular acupuncture, and swimming, therapeutic massage, and exercise. Liturgy is celebrated on most weekdays, and weekend liturgy is experienced at one of the local parishes, when not possible at Guest House. Progress is closely monitored, and the leadership’s contact person is part of the treating team. Regular contact is maintained until the date for returning home is determined.
