Before you or your loved one makes the decision to start treatment you may have some questions. Below is a list of frequently asked questions about our services that can help you with your decision.


Yes! We work with most major insurance providers. We offer free no-obligation insurance benefit checks for those who are interested in our program. Our treatment advisors will speak with your insurer, get a detailed verification of your insurance benefits, and share those details with you. Unfortunately medicaid and medicare do not cover our facility.

Guests who come to stay at The Plymouth House need to be physically detoxified from alcohol and drugs before they arrive at our campus. We highly recommend individuals DO NOT try to get sober on their own, but rather detox at a professional medical detox facility where withdrawal symptoms can be monitored. Withdrawal can be dangerous — even life threatening. While The Plymouth House does not offer detox services ourselves, we do have wonderful relationships with detox facilities in the area and are happy to help you get admitted. Then, once you are physically sober from addictive substances, we will help with the transition into our facility. Once here, you will have access to a doctor and psychiatrist who can prescribe any necessary medication you need to maintain your health and sobriety.

Program lengths vary on a case-by-case basis but generally our Residential Inpatient Program lasts approximately 2 weeks, while our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is 2-4 weeks. Guests must complete Residential Inpatient before moving on to PHP. Our optional Extended Care Program and volunteer Monitor Program are typically around 3 months.

Often traveling out of your home town is the best option for treatment. The temptation to leave early or experience relapse triggers is much lower when you are away from the people and places you associate with your substance abuse. The Plymouth House offers a complimentary car service for individuals within a few hours drive who are interested in coming to the program. Sober escort services are also available. If needed we can also help you book a flight and help find reliable transportation to/from the airport so that you can safely and comfortably reach our facility.*

*Please note that the cost of transportation services, such as airfare, are the financial responsibility of our clients.

Our admissions process is quick and easy. Once you call us, one of our experienced Treatment Advisors will perform a brief pre-assessment. This takes about 10 minutes and will help you determine if The Plymouth House is the best fit for you or your loved one. After the assessment we will verify insurance benefits and arrange a time for your intake. The Plymouth House does not offer medical detox services, but we are happy to help you arrange for a medical detox before transferring to our facility. We have excellent working relationships with multiple medical detox centers in the area, and in other states. Once you have been safely detoxed, we will help you transition into our program. If you need a ride to the facility we will dispatch one of our drivers to pick you up and you will begin your recovery at our facility. 

We encourage family members to be involved in their loved one’s treatment process. We host a Family Workshop (Takes place between spring and fall, weather dependent.) and have regular visiting hours with the following stipulations:

  • Visitation is on Saturdays from 1pm-5pm.
  • Plymouth House guests must fill out a visitation request slip for each person they wish to visit by Thursday evening for Saturday visitation. All visitors must be approved before Saturday.
  • We ask that visitors be limited to family members and those instrumental to the recovery of our guests.
  • All visitors must sign in at the main office upon arrival and at departure.
  • Visitors may bring dogs but they must be leashed and well-mannered.
  • Any items visitors bring to guests must first be inspected and approved by staff.
  • Visitors are not allowed in the guest rooms or lounges.

Guests who need to take off work to attend treatment may be eligible for the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA). FMLA ensures that you will not be terminated while taking a leave of absences from work to attend treatment. Our treatment advisors and case management staff can help with setting up any FMLA paperwork. 

While we strongly discourage leaving before treatment completion, we are not a lockdown facility. Our guests are in our program voluntarily and may leave when they choose. While in the Residential Inpatient program, guests are not allowed off grounds except when escorted by staff. While in the Partial Hospitalization portion of our program, guests have Sundays off and are free to leave the grounds with staff approval.

The cost of treatment varies from person-to-person based on the level of treatment needed. The good news is that The Plymouth House works with many health insurance companies to provide treatment to individuals at a manageable cost. Learn more about options for paying for treatment here. Or contact us 24 hours a day.

If you’re wondering if you or your loved one needs treatment chances are someone needs help.  Before admission into our program we offer a pre-assessment to determine if clients meet criteria for admission in to treatment. To complete a complementary pre-assessment please contact us.

The Plymouth House has an average staff to guest ratio of 1:4. Every guest works with a primary therapist, 12-Step Contact and case manager throughout their stay at The Plymouth House.

We don’t provide numeric success rates, as we feel they are usually misleading and the methods used to gather them have both questionable internal and external validity. Addiction is a complex and multifaceted problem, and success in treating it should be represented by a genuine increase in quality of life. We are confident that the practices we teach are effective, when they are practiced. Many members of our sizeable alumni community have well over a decade of sobriety, and every year our annual alumni weekend brings many hundreds of Plymouth House alumni back home to where it all began.

Many of our guests arrive at The Plymouth House with both an addiction problem and mental health issues. Our experience has taught us that often, mental health issues can’t be successfully addressed until a guest has some sobriety under their belt. Learn more about our dual diagnosis program here.
