Located in Bloomington, Ind., which is about 50 miles southwest of Indianapolis, Amethyst House, Inc. provides residential and outpatient treatment for adults struggling with substance use disorder and/or gambling addiction. The facility also offers additional outpatient services through its Counseling For Change office in Evansville. Detoxification services are not available on-site — all clients must be medically stable and at least two weeks sober prior to admission.


All clients must complete an application and participate in an in-person interview in order to be considered for treatment. Priority admission is given to IV drug users and pregnant women, and children ages six and under may stay with their mothers at the residential facility. If accepted, clients must be willing to commit to a minimum stay of six months in the residential program.

The residential program is gender-specific and requires all participants to secure employment (at least 32 hours a week) during their stay, as well as attend daily 12-step meetings and obtain a sponsor. Residents must also attend weekly house meetings, carry out assigned chores, and work with a case manager to complete individualized treatment goals.

Treatment combines evidence-based practices with 12-step methodology. Clients are assessed upon admission and placed in an appropriate outpatient program, which typically includes individual counseling, group therapy, and addiction education.

Aftercare is offered via continued case management, outpatient services, and an alumni program.


According to the facility's website, the treatment team includes licensed clinical addiction counselors, licensed clinical social workers, and case managers.


Residents share bedrooms in modest, gender-specific homes in downtown Bloomington. Cell phones are permitted, and off-site passes are granted after the first 30 days in the program. Laundry facilities and small exercise rooms are offered on-site. Smoking is prohibited both in houses and on property grounds.

REVIEWS has not yet received any reviews from this facility’s alumni, affiliated friends or family members, or staff. A single one-star review was left on Google by Jared, who reported having a negative experience.[1]


Assessments cost $150, and the residential program charges a flat fee of $500 a month, which includes room, board, and case management services. Outpatient services are charged separately. A limited number of insurance plans are accepted and include Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, Encore Health Network, SIHO Insurance Services, Cook Medical, and Value Options, as well as Anthem and MDwise Medicaid plans.
