ABOUT ALETHEIA HOUSE
Aletheia House is a community-based organization that provides low-cost substance use and prevention treatment and programs in Birmingham, Ala. First founded in 1972, the established organization is one of the largest providers of employment services and affordable housing in the state of Alabama today.
Aletheia House runs a residential program exclusively for men - one of just 47 (36.4 percent) of such programs statewide - that’s focused on helping men with histories of addiction, unemployment, and/or homelessness. Medication assisted treatment (MAT) is also available here.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
The men’s residential program offers a supportive environment for adult men seeking to recover from addiction. The program mainly features employment and housing search assistance along with individual, group, and family counseling and life-skills training. Links to other social services are provided, where necessary, as is transportation to and from treatment.
Compared to others facilities in Alabama, Aletheia House is one of just 56 (43.4 percent) that helps clients with locating permanent housing; it is one of only 48 (37.2 percent) that offers clients employment counseling or training.
In addition to its men’s program, The Aletheia House runs a “Jobs for Vets” program, one of just (20.2 percent) of programs that services veterans statewide.
Under its rural treatment services program, Aletheia House provides mobile clinic services to clients in remote areas of Alabama.
Aletheia House employs master's level therapists, case managers, counselors, and prevention specialists.

Aletheia House is a 48-bed program, according to the facility’s website. Photos on Google depict a small one-floor house in a suburban area with comfortable furnishing.
Of the three individuals surveyed by Rehabs.com to date, two gave five out of five stars for the facility’s accommodations and quality of meals while the third left three and four stars in these areas.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Feedback from former clients was generally positive. All three individuals polled by Rehabs.com to date described the men’s program staff as “welcoming, genuine and swift” though the location as less appealing: “The facility is not in good condition. The facility looks more like a prison than homey,” one of the anonymous reviewers griped.
Another reviewer gave the facility four out of five stars for treatment effectiveness, highlighting an environment they found “strict and very structured” and a support system “that made it helpful to the recovery process.”
Aletheia House also has an average rating of 3.8 out of five stars from 41 individuals on Facebook (where the facility can manage its page). While some were unsatisfied with their experience, commenting on a case worker they found “incompetent,” others thought the staff “very sensitive” and the classes “informative.” “Thankful for my Aletheia House friends. I have prospered so' so much since then,” wrote Lloyd, one of several grateful program alum.
WHAT STAFF SAY
Rehabs.com has not yet received any feedback from staffers of Aletheia House to date. On Glassdoor, where nine individuals awarded their current/former employer an average of 2.9 out of five stars, reviewers were enthusiastic over their work and interaction with clients but more critical of the management. “Senior leadership entrenched in arcane methodology, and battles constantly over ‘change,’” one wrote, while another told of “frenetic craziness of upper management” and a “lack of communication.”
The Men’s Residential program is free until the resident has found employment, at which point they begin paying fees for housing and treatment. According to its website, all Aletheia House programs accept Medicaid, which only 60.5 percent of all facilities in the state do.
