Review by Rehabs.com Contributors


Nonprofit Elmhurst Home, Inc. was founded in 1970 to treat those struggling with substance abuse and criminal behavior, and today operates two residential facilities: one for men and one for women. This men’s treatment center, located in a residential neighborhood seven miles northwest of central Detroit, offers both short- and long-term residential treatment for men aged 18+ who are struggling with substance abuse and dual diagnosis.

Elmhurst Home offers extensive support to those involved in the criminal justice system. Among other programs, it accepts some clients who are paroled to the direct custody of Elmhurst Home.


Short-term programs last 14 to 30 days; long-term treatment lasts 90 days.

Treatment consists of weekly individual therapy as well as more frequent group therapy, family reconciliation sessions, and attendance at 12-step meetings held both on- and off-site. As well as the 12-step program, the center uses cognitive behavioral techniques and offers relapse prevention, anger management training, and parenting classes.

The center also aims to provide its residents with life skills, offering a certified GED literacy program, life skills training, computer skills classes, employment and housing assistance, and work therapy.


Staff includes a PhD-level clinical supervisor and a social worker. The single individual polled by Rehabs.com to date on the staff’s level of training and experience gave it four out of five stars.


The treatment facility is a Tudor-style brick building on a corner lot. Pictures published on Elmhurst Home’s website show a slightly run-down clinical environment with bunk beds in dorm-style shared bedrooms and a large catering kitchen. According to a local news report, the center houses around 100 men at a time. The single individual polled by Rehabs.com to date on the center’s accommodations gave them three out of five stars.


At the time of this writing, secondary review sites yielded very limited but very positive coverage from alumni: two five-star reviews, one left without commentary on Facebook, and one on HealthGrove, where Michael wrote: “This place changed my life for the better. Helped me with my alcohol problem and made me realize that I am somebody.”[1] [2]


The single loved one polled by Rehabs.com to date would recommend treatment at this center. They awarded Elmhurst Home five out of five stars for its overall effectiveness and its family program, but just three out of five stars for its holistic options, and wrote: “Had a relative there it's been a while. Staff was a strength.”


The single staffer polled by Rehabs.com to date would not recommend Elmhurst Home to friends and family. Though they praised the center’s CBT curriculum, they criticized the “lack of professionalism and open mindedness to concerns, ideas or expertise of staff by administration,” and gave the center two out of five stars for its honesty and the overall quality of the care it offers.


Elmhurst Home’s website notes that no client is turned away for a lack of insurance or funds, but does not provide further information about the facility’s costs or financial arrangements. The single individual polled by Rehabs.com to date on the center’s affordability gave it four stars, and the staffer polled on the fairness of Elmhurst Home’s pricing gave the center three stars in this category.

Two decades of license professional services. Caring supportive therapist. Lack of professionalism and open mindedness to concerns, ideas or expertise of staff by administration. Administration and clinical overseen by one individual with minimal background in clinical concepts.
