Treatment and Support to Help You Regain Control from:

Alcohol use • Illegal drug use • Prescription drug use • Other drug use

Thalia House offers a comprehensive residential alcohol and substance use treatment and support to clients and their families when the severity of substance use does not require inpatient hospitalization. The treatment approach is based on the 12-Step philosophy in tandem with an individualized evaluation and treatment plan for each client's specific needs - one that focuses on understanding the disease concept of addiction and the need for relapse prevention skills.

Substance use dysfunction dramatically affects the user as well as his or her loved ones, and produces biological and psychological symptoms. Those with substance use issues often withdraw, usually feeling extreme pain and discomfort accompanied by other symptoms, depending on the substance used, when the substance is withheld. Many are in denial of this serious issue that can control their lives.


Thalia House offers a substance use, as well as, a transitional living milieu for recovery. We help residents recover from their addictions and turn their lives around. At Thalia House, addiction can be treated in a caring, supportive environment.

Our program provides support, accountability, and transitional living care for individuals suffering from illegal and prescription drug abuse as well as dependence on and addiction to alcohol.

Thalia's residential program initiates the process of recovery from drug and alcohol addictions and utilizes a comprehensive treatment plan specific to the medical, emotional, and social needs of each individual. Our proactive and holistic approach includes individual and group counseling, family intervention, addiction education, physical exercise, medical stabilization, accountability through scheduled and random drug & alcohol tests as needed, and self-help support recovery via Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and/or Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings and groups.
