Guest House

Admissions

OUR PROCESS

Admissions Information

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.

  • Treatment is provided regardless of ability to pay.
  • Admissions are scheduled by appointment.
  • Individuals arriving by plane or train will be met at the airport or station by a Guest House associate.
  • Handicapped-accessible rooms are available.

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.

WHAT TO BRING TO TREATMENT

Pack the essentials,
plan for comfort.

 

  • Personal grooming and hygiene items that are scent free are suggested ~ this may include soap, toothpaste, lotion, comb/brush and shampoo/conditioner. We have laundry areas and supply the detergent needed by our clients.
  • Daily attire is casual and appropriate to the season. Comfortable walking shoes are suggested as the grounds are good for a brisk or casual walk. Swimming is available on a limited basis at a local high school so a bathing suit and flip flops may be useful.
  • Medications that are prescribed, natural or over-the-counter should be brought in their original containers so nursing staff can dispense them according to directions.
  • Any recent lab result or other relevant medical information is appreciated and can provide a basis of comparison.
  • A cell phone or a phone card may be brought and used at appropriate times during the course of the day and evening. Laptops are not permitted. Guest House has computers, and guests can check email and utlilize the computers for other approved uses.

REFERRALS

Healing begins by reaching out
on behalf of those in need.

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.

a typical day

An upward movement from darkness to light.

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.
