McIntyre House Philosophy

McIntyre House offers an extensive and challenging recovery program for men suffering from drug and alcohol addiction. The house, a 5000 square foot home located near Hollywood, California, provides a home-like setting where men can help each other and be held accountable for their recovery. With one-on-one sessions, house meetings, focus groups, active 12-step participation and a supportive environment, McIntyre House moves clients through each step of the recovery phase and towards a healthy and happy life of sobriety.

Areas of Specialization

  • 12-Step
    The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.

  • Residential Treatment
    Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.

McIntyre House, a residential substance abuse treatment center for adult men, is set in a Los Angeles townhouse, just east of Hollywood and west of Silver Lake. The center operates as a nonprofit organization, and the program is firmly rooted in 12-step principles.


According to the facility’s website, treatment is long-term; participants may remain on-site for up to 12 months. During this time, clients work through a structured program designed to promote lasting sobriety. Activities include one-on-one counseling, educational groups, and house meetings. Clients also attend 12-step meetings and benefit from the local support group. If needed, clients may access additional services through McIntyre House’s connections with employment, mental health, and social service agencies.


McIntyre House employs a small staff of administrative personnel. The center is governed by a board of directors that includes a medical doctor and several faith leaders.


Accommodations in the 5,000-square-foot home are simple and clean. Residents share double and triple occupancy rooms and have access to laundry facilities. There is a shared living room with a TV, plus outdoor weight-training equipment, a recovery garden, on-site computers, and Internet access. All residents receive three meals per day, including a family-style dinner.


Alumni reviews of this facility are limited, but the single alum polled by to date rated the McIntyre House five out of five stars in every category, including individual counseling, the staff’s level of training and experience, and group counseling. Alum M.O. expressed gratitude for the center’s supportive programming, writing: “If I needed It I'm sure I would be welcome back. Saved My life.”

Two Yelp reviewers also rated the McIntyre House positively to date, each giving the facility five out of five stars, praising the facility’s staff for their guidance.[1] Alum Anthony wrote: “If you are sick of being sick and tired and are WILLING to follow direction this place can help.”

In contrast, four Google reviewers rated the McIntyre House an average two out of five stars to date, with three reviewers only giving one star and only one rating the facility five stars.[2]


According to the facility’s website, “no man is turned away due to a lack of funds.” Scholarships and sliding scale fees may be available to qualified candidates.
