Starting from the perspective that substance abuse is a treatable condition, the McDonough House works to provide help and hope to those struggling with addiction by individualizing treatment to meet the needs of each client. The program offers 12-step meetings for clients and families, in addition to individual and group counseling.

Facility Highlights

  • Individual Counseling
  • Chemical Dependency Education
  • Group Therapy

Specialization

  • Family Program
    Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
  • Individualized Treatment
    Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.

My son is currently at McD house, he went to the detox there first. The staff has been extremely supportive to me and my son. I went and saw him for the first time since being “clean” & he is excited about the future and support he’s received for fellow residents and staff. I called and one of the counselors there helped to guid me with finding a sober home for when he is discharged. I see all of these poor reviews and am stunned because so far the experience we’ve had is helping to save my sons life. I think what people need to realize is there is work on their own behalf involved to get the most of of what MCCA offers. I would definitely suggest this facility to anyone who is in current need of detox and services.

STAY AWAY I read all reviews online before I made my own review because you have to give places the benefit of the doubt but they’re all truth this place is the worst, the facilitators are good but the upper staff like teachers and administration sucks if you challenged them on something they get defensive and throw you out of the program like they did to me.

I have been to the McDonough House 28 day Rehab as well as their IOP and Relapse Prevention groups. I must say it is a great program and has seriously given me a lot of tools and information to help me stay sober. The Rehab has a full schedule of groups during the week and some rec time on the weekends. I was very welcomed by both the mostly excellent staff, Techs and the group members. Many will be friends for a very long time. There are no pools or tennis courts because these people are very serious in helping you to get and stay sober and clean. I highly recommend MCCA if you want to get sober and clean.

STAY AWAY FROM MCDONOUGH HOUSE. They promise meetings once a day and don’t even have one every other day. Half the time all you do is sit around and watch tv. They have no safety precautions for if you do need to report something and there is no safety for patients who actually are trying to overcome their addiction. The staff is unprofessional and lack basic training skills to be working in a recovery facility. This place is a hell hole that no one should put money into or have their insurance company put money into. Absolutely disgraceful.
