Guest House admits clergy, men and women religious who are suffering from alcohol or drug abuse, compulsive eating, compulsive gambling or spending, or who are experiencing difficulties related to chemical use.
Through our Intervention Assistance Program, we can help you to 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 to help the clergy, men and women religious who think they needs 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.
Referrals may be made by authorized representatives of the diocese or religious community, primary treatment centers, physicians, other concerned individuals. Priests, deacons, seminarians or women religious can also contact us themselves.
The admission must be approved by the bishop or other religious leadership.
The daily schedule and rhythm of Guest House clients are centered in learning about the brain disease of addiction through a variety of lectures/ discussions, individual and group therapies, spiritual direction, and alternative approaches such as tai chi, auricular acupuncture, swimming, therapeutic massage and exercise. Liturgy is celebrated on most week days, 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.
