Regarded as being among Michigan’s largest and more affordable sober living/recovery home networks since 2005, the Structured House Organization announced this week the official launch of its new outpatient drug treatment program. The Ann Arbor, MI based non-profit coins it a move in a direction aimed at providing more affordable addiction treatment options for those with health insurance and/or limited financial means.
Originally launched in 2005 under the name Structured Living, LLC, the company’s mission of providing affordable yet highly structured transitional recovery housing for drug addicts and alcoholics, evolved into a current network of 10 homes throughout middle-class neighborhoods. Located exclusively in Ann Arbor, Michigan, residents are afforded a very pro-recovery environment given Ann Arbor’s national acclaim as being a very “recovery friendly” city. Structured Living’s broadening reputation among facilities and treatment professionals became a catalyst for forging strong relations with statewide residential and outpatient drug rehab centers.
Says company representative, Davinder Singh, “Most residential drug rehabs are beyond the reach of many who want to get better. There needs to be a shift within the scope of addiction treatment, one that enables those with limited financial means or of whom are confined to paying with health insurance, to receive quality clinical care when theirs or their loved ones life is battered by drug or alcohol addiction.” Adds Mr. Singh, “The Structured House mission is designed to integrate effective, low-cost outpatient treatment with corresponding structured recovery or sober living housing, so as to essentially provide a viable and realistic alternative to the often exorbitantly priced residential drug rehab model.”
The company recently made the move from its prior Structured Living, LLC to the now non-profit 501(c)3 Structured House Organization which, now heavily relies on corporate and private donations as a means for offering outpatient treatment at out-of-pocket rates starting as low as $25 - $50 per treatment day. From the clinical side, there have been a number of recent personnel acquisitions that bring extensive credentials and prior expertise from regional treatment centers, including that of Brighton Hospital, Dawn Farm and University of Michigan’s Addiction Treatment Services Clinic, often referred to as UMATS.
The Structured House IOP model is best described as a very practical and affordable drug rehab with real-life components. Clients essentially live within their network of sober living homes and attend two to three therapeutic care sessions weekly. The enhanced IOP option sessions are provided either during the after work evening hours or on weekends so that gainful daytime activities of participants are not interrupted.
Outside of treatment hours, clients are bound to various housing rules and restrictions, such as either attending school or being gainfully employed, curfews, 12-Step meeting attendance, random drug screening, general code of conduct, etc. However, unlike traditional inpatient drug rehab settings, clients are afforded substantially more “cautious freedom” to come and go as they please during off times. Their claim is that the magic of group support is bound to happen if a person is ready, teachable and willing to turn his or her life around for the better, and the help and tools to achieve this long term miracle are readily available with us.
In addition, participation in the new outpatient program is described as being, “All are Welcome,” meaning that admission is open to the general public as well as to those currently living within the Structured House network of sober living recovery homes.
States Mr. Singh in closing, “This approach to addiction treatment is proven, we’re not reinventing the wheel here, however, what we are reinventing is the availability of quality treatment to a segment of society that might otherwise be forced to cash in their retirement savings or take out a line of credit in order to pay for their loved ones care…we’re very excited and passionate about recovery as well as its widespread availability”
