Founded in 1973 and headquartered in the north of Oklahoma City, nonprofit Catalyst Behavioral Services operates several locations that provide a range of treatments for those struggling with substance abuse issues, as well as mental health issues.

Community House, located in a quiet, leafy neighborhood in central Oklahoma City, is a residential facility for adult men and women.


Treatment begins with a comprehensive assessment, which is used to put together individualized treatment plans tailored to each client’s needs. Treatment uses individual, group, and family therapy. The center does not provide extensive further details of its program, but reviews submitted to indicated that treatment uses the 12-Steps, and that residents attend meetings off-site.

In appropriate cases, the center offers medication-assisted treatment, facilitated by a physician.


The facility employs full-time licensed therapists as well as physicians, psychiatrists, and nurses. The four alumni and loved ones polled by to date gave the staff's level of training and experience an average of 4.1 out of five stars.


This facility offers 55 beds in semi-private rooms. During their stay, residents may enjoy on-site volleyball and basketball courts, an exercise area, and entertainment rooms. All meals are approved by a staff dietitian, and families may visit every weekend.

Several reviewers described this facility as run-down, though the four alumni and loved ones polled to date on the center’s accommodations gave them an average rating of 3.5 out of five stars.


All three of the alumni polled by to date would recommend treatment at Community House. The reviews painted a picture of a facility that offers solid basic care without much extracurricular programming: all three alumni gave the facility four or five out of five stars for the overall effectiveness of its treatment, but just one or two stars for its holistic options. The single alum polled on the center’s treatment for co-occurring disorders gave just two stars in this category, too. In their comments, reviewers repeatedly stressed that though this is far from a luxury facility, its program worked for them: “It is a state funded facility so it is kind of run down looking, but the people are great and you can stay as long as you need to,” G.H.Y. wrote in a representative review.

At the time of this writing, the center had mostly positive, but polarized reviews spread across Facebook (one five-star rating), Google (three five-star ratings and a one-star rating), and CiteHealth (three five-star ratings, a four-star rating, and two one-star ratings).[1][2][3] The negative reviewers cited run-down conditions, but positive reviewers stressed the profoundly positive effect the center had had on their lives despite its not being a luxury rehab — much like the alumni polled by “My experience with catalyst was life changing… The outside appearance and location is not the most desirable but what it lacks in appeal in that area it more than makes up for with the warmth and family like appeal it has to offer,” Tammy wrote in a representative positive review on Facebook.


The single loved one polled by to date would recommend treatment at this facility. They gave the center four or five out of five stars in most of the 15 evaluated treatment metrics, including its holistic and counseling options, its overall effectiveness, and its treatment for co-occurring disorders. They gave the center just three stars for its family program. “This facility I would highly recommend. The knowledgeable staff are always on hand,” they wrote anonymously.


The single staffer polled by to date, Mike, gave very positive feedback. Mike gave Community House five out of five stars in almost all of the evaluated treatment metrics, including its honesty, willingness to put clients’ interests first, and overall quality. “Great place to change your life and regain self-respect,” he wrote.


According to Catalyst’s website, the organization accepts most health insurance plans as well as Medicaid and Medicare. The two individuals polled by to date on the center’s affordability gave it a three-star rating and a five-star rating respectively.

It is a state funded facility so it is kind of run down looking, but the people are great and you can stay as long as you need to.

Great Counselors, Compassion, Family Days, Outside Meetings. After I left a turn over in Counselors, several employees relocated that were great assets to the Rehab. Ive been to 7 Treatment facilities, I surrendered and was willing to follow those 5 suggestions that guarantee success. 3 years has passed I now recide at a wonderful place. I have my own place with my daughter and enjoy fellowship with like minded people and accountibility. I have committed meetings that I love to go to and I finally see what I must do to be happy and I pay it forward.

Knowledgeable staff are always on hand. Nutritional meals are given to patients. The facility could stop trying to encourage group counseling over individual counseling. This facility I would highly recommend. The knowledgeable staff are always on hand. This is especially nice, since it's a residential treatment facility. It's a very nice facility, which has a variety of different offers for the patients. This is also the longest continually running residential treatment facility in downtown Oklahoma, that I know of.

They have a payment program that can start after treatment, when you get back on your feet. There were counselors who really care and go out of their way to dedicate themselves to helping those struggling with addiction and mental disorders. This facility is not in a really nice expensive place, resides in a pretty run down neighborhood, and doesn't have the funding the expensive rehabs have, but this facility has the people who have been where we have and seen what we have seen, they have the knowledge, wisdom, strength and tools to teach us how to deal with ourselves and become better people that aren't hurting ourselves or our loved ones any longer.
