Odyssey House - Adult Residential

0 Reviews

Odyssey House is a long and short term residential program to help adults struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. Odyssey House operates a Modified Therapeutic Community model, also known as a TC, which is on SAMHSA’s National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices.

Odyssey House - Adult Residential Focus:

Substance Abuse

Substance Abuse Treatment Centers focus on helping individuals recover from substance abuse, including alcohol and drug addiction (both illegal and prescription drugs). They often include the opportunity to engage in both individual as well as group therapy.


The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.

Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

Adults struggling with substance abuse problems often have a history of underlying mental health disorders. The objective is to address the addiction problems and mental health disorders at the same time. Self-medication through the use of drugs or alcohol only makes mental health issues worse, creating a downward spiral of continued drug abuse and poor mental health. Odyssey House works to break that cycle through our Dual Diagnosis Enhanced program. With staff members trained in both substance-related and mental health disorders, they provide enhanced therapy for people with mental health problems such as clinical depression, anxiety, mood disorders, antisocial personality disorder and PTSD.

Rehab Services:

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) | SAMHSA

Odyssey House uses medication assisted treatment to help individuals detox and reduce drug cravings. Individuals can utilize common interventions such as Methadone, Suboxone, Naltrexone, Buprenorphine, and Vivitrol while in Odyssey House programming. Medication Assisted Treatment increases abstinence from substances, reduces drug craving, and increases treatment engagement and retention.

Buprenorphine used for Detox and Treatment

Buprenorphine (brand name Subutex, among others) is an opioid medication used to treat opioid addiction. Buprenorphine can prevent or significantly reduce withdrawal symptoms, making it easier to get and stay off opioids. Sometimes used alongside naloxone, dosage depends on the severity of each case. Many people stay on buprenorphine long-term, although some gradually reduce the dosage to come off it.


VIVITROL® is an injectable prescription medicine used to treat alcohol and opioid dependence. Administered only with medical approval, VIVITROL blocks opioid receptors in the brain, which helps reduce cravings and prevent relapse. VIVITROL is non-addictive and extended-release, so it only needs to be taken once a month. Before starting VIVITROL, you must be opioid-free for at least 7-10 days in order to avoid sudden opioid withdrawal symptoms.

What does Odyssey House - Adult Residential offer?

Residential (inpatient) Treatment

Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient's individual requirements.

Therapies Offered:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioral therapy anticipates likely problems and increases patients’ self-control by helping them develop strong coping strategies. Specific techniques include exploring the positive and negative consequences of continued drug use, self-monitoring to recognize cravings early and identify situations that might put one at risk for use, and developing strategies for coping with cravings and avoiding those high-risk situations. CBT also helps people develop skills for living in harmony with the community and engaging in behaviors that contribute to positive outcomes in society. CBT has been proven to show improvement in social skills, problem-solving, critical reasoning, and moral reasoning.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

DBT is a cognitive-behavioral treatment approach with two main approaches. The first approach is a behavioral, problem-solving focus with acceptance-based strategies. The second approach in DBT is to balance behavioral change, problem-solving, and emotional regulation with validation, mindfulness, and acceptance. Dialectical Behavior Therapy has shown reductions in suicide attempts, non-suicidal self-injuries, drug use, and symptoms of eating disorders; and improvements in psychosocial adjustment and retention in treatment.

Individual Therapy

In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.

Trauma Therapy

Being a trauma informed organization means their staff realizes the widespread impact of trauma and the potential paths for healing. Odyssey staff recognizes the signs and symptoms of trauma and responds by fully integrating knowledge about trauma into policies, procedures, practices, and settings. Trauma informed care is known to help decrease psychiatric symptoms, decrease substance use, increase in housing stability, and improvement in daily functioning. People also show a reduced need for crisis services (detox) and are more likely to engage in treatment services.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is a one-on-one form of therapy that is designed to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression symptoms associated with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Through attention exercises that are built to disrupt the stored memory of the trauma and rewrite the memory, so it is not as stressful. EMDR is shown to reduce PTSD, anxiety, and depression symptoms and improve overall mental health functioning.

Motivational Interviewing

MI focuses on behavioral change by helping clients explore and resolve ambivalence. Motivational Interviewing applies to a wide range of problem behaviors related to alcohol and substance abuse as well as helping improve physical health, staying in treatment and mental health. MI is shown to decrease alcohol use, drug use, alcohol-related injuries, drinking and driving; and improves retention in treatment and recognition of the problems associated with continued substance use.

Life Skills

Life skills trainings involve all the skills a person must have in order to function successfully in the world. These include time management, career guidance, money management, and effective communication. Truly successful addiction recovery is based on the ability to not only live substance-free, but to thrive. Adults also reinforce a healthy routine while in inpatient including cooking, doing laundry, the importance of keeping your space clean, etc.
