ABOUT BETHANY HALL
Founded in 1970, Bethany Hall provides evidence-based, family-friendly substance abuse treatment to adult women. Located in Roanoke, Va., in a large Victorian home with a wrap-around porch, this rehab is a haven for women with children. The center offers long-term residential treatment, and caters to the unique needs of pregnant women, postpartum women, and mothers with children. Detox is not provided on-site, and women must be medically stable prior to admission.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
An application must be filled out for admission, which is typically followed by a phone interview. Before being admitted, clients must have had a TB test within the past year, provide verification of pregnancy (if applicable), and pass a drug and alcohol screening. Women with children can bring one infant six months or younger with them to treatment.
Treatment at Bethany Hall is holistic and utilizes a Therapeutic Community (TC) approach. This requires clients to participate in group-based activities to learn how to effectively communicate with peers and staff, as well as maintain accountability (keeping personal areas clean, etc.) and problem solve when group issues arise. Women also learn and follow 12-step methodology and regularly attend 12-step meetings.
According to the facility’s website, a 12-month aftercare program is offered to graduates if necessary and includes recovery and housing support.
There is currently no information provided by the facility regarding its treatment staff, however the two alumni surveyed by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing both gave the facility five out of five stars for its staff’s level of training and support.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
All bedrooms at Bethany House are on the second floor of the facility’s Victorian home, so residents must be able to climb stairs. All meals are prepared and eaten as a group. The facility does not permit smoking anywhere on the premises, however nicotine replacement methods may be used if needed.
The two alumni surveyed by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing gave the facility ratings of four and five out of five stars respectively for its accommodations and amenities.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
The two former clients polled by Rehabs.com gave Bethany Hall positive reviews. Both praised the facility’s Therapeutic Community approach, noting that while tough, it was effective. “It was not easy living with 9 other females. We all had responsibilities and were held accountable if we did not adhere,” Teresa wrote. “This was a bonafide treatment program. They did not sugarcoat or enable. You were taught the tools to live drug free.”
Kelly agreed, describing the program as “intense” but telling Rehabs.com that it “facilitates major changes in a relatively short period of time.” Her one complaint was that the program provided a lack of emphasis on the 12-steps.
On Google, Bethany Hall received an enthusiastic five-star review (its only review) from an alum named Kathi who wrote: “How do you explain the difference between dark and light? Day and night ? It's difficult, but Bethany Hall shines a light & shows the way to find the answer.”
According to the facility’s website, fees for residential treatment are as follows: $90 per day for adult women, $110 per day for women with children, and $120 a day for pregnant/postpartum women. The website also notes that Medicaid is sometimes accepted for pregnant women.
