ABOUT ODYSSEY HOUSE
Founded in 1971, Odyssey House offers residential and outpatient treatment for adolescents and adults, as well as sober living placements for adults only. There’s also a dedicated treatment track for single mothers and fathers.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
According to the center’s website, all residential programs are designed to accommodate clients with substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders. Treatment follows a Modified Therapeutic Community model, which utilizes role models and peer support, according to the facility’s website. All programs use evidence-based therapies, including individual, group, and family therapy; motivational enhancement; and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Medication management services are also available.
In the teen residential program, for clients ages 14 to 17, Odyssey uses behavioral interventions and modeling to improve the client’s potential lack of motivation, problems at school, lack of life skills, defiance, or criminal thinking. Outpatient treatment options for adolescents include a 12-week in-home program that consists of motivational enhancement therapy, systems theory, and multidimensional family therapy.
The adult residential program specializes in treating “hard to reach” clients, including those with mental health issues, poor social skills, low income, limited job skills, or failed prior treatment. Alongside substance abuse and mental health treatment, it offers vocational development, sober housing, psychiatric services, and medical care. Clients can choose to learn construction, food services, sales, counseling, and building maintenance.
Outpatient offerings for adults include a program for highly successful adults, which meets twice a week for 16 weeks. An intensive outpatient program begins with more than 18 group and individual therapy hours a week.
A residential program for single mothers and fathers allows children up to the age of nine to stay with their parent. While parents receive treatment, their children attend a therapeutic day care where they receive education and address past traumas.
According to the facility’s website, staff include an M.D., licensed mental health counselors, licensed clinical social workers, and substance abuse counselors.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
An on-site, fully accredited school for adolescent clients features a teacher-to-student ratio of 1:12, according to the center’s website. Visitors are welcome during scheduled hours. In terms of sober living facilities for adults, the organization describes them as “newly remodeled apartments” with on-call staff and structured community activities.
