Rehabs 360 Guide


Nonprofit Elmhurst Home, Inc. was founded in 1970 to treat those struggling with substance abuse and criminal behavior, and today operates two residential facilities: one for men and one for women. The men's facility is amongst the 209 (45.8 percent) facilities in the state to provide male-specific programming.

This men’s treatment center, located in a residential neighborhood seven miles northwest of central Detroit, offers both short- and long-term residential treatment for adult men who are struggling with substance abuse or a dual diagnosis, one of Michigan's 225 (49.3 percent) facilities offering this programming track.


Upon admission, clients undergo an initial assessment to help clinicians determine an individualized treatment plan. Short-term residential programs last 14 to 30 days, while long-term treatment may lasts up to 90 days.

Treatment consists of weekly individual and group therapy, as well as family reconciliation sessions and 12-step meetings held both on- and off-site. In addition to the 12-step program, the center uses cognitive behavioral techniques and offers relapse prevention, anger management training, and parenting classes.

The center also aims to provide its residents with life skills, offering a certified GED literacy program, life skills training, computer skills classes, employment and housing assistance, and work therapy. Additionally, the facility is one of the just 76 (16.7 percent) in the state to provide HIV and STD testing and education.


Nonprofit Elmhurst Home, Inc's staff includes a Ph.D-level clinical supervisor, finance expert, and a social worker. The single individual polled by Rehabs.com to date on the staff’s level of training and experience gave this metric four out of five stars.


The treatment facility is a Tudor-style brick building on a corner lot. Pictures published on Elmhurst Home’s website indicated a clinical environment with bunk beds in dorm-style shared bedrooms and a large catering kitchen. The single individual polled by Rehabs.com to date on the center’s accommodations offered a three out of five-star rating.


At the time of this writing, Rehabs.com has yet to receive feedback from alumni of Elmhurst Home, Inc.'s men's facility; however, on Facebook, which the facility may manage, the home earned a 2.3 out of five-star review based on feedback from seven users to date.[1] Written comments describe negative experiences with staff professionalism and perceived discrimination. "Everyone and everything else about this place is a joke," N.M. wrote, while J.B. added, "The use of profanity by the staff and counselors during didactics and groups was again, very unethical and unprofessional."


The single loved one polled by Rehabs.com to date would recommend treatment at Elmhurst Home, Inc.'s men's facility.

The single staffer polled by Rehabs.com to date would not recommend Elmhurst Home to friends and family. Though they praised the center’s CBT curriculum, they criticized the “lack of professionalism and open mindedness to concerns, ideas or expertise of staff by administration,” and gave the center two out of five stars for its honesty and the overall quality of the care it offers.


Elmhurst Home’s website notes that no client is turned away for a lack of insurance or funds, but does not provide further information about the facility’s costs or financial arrangements. The single individual polled by Rehabs.com to date on the center’s affordability gave it four out of five stars, and the staffer polled on the fairness of Elmhurst Home’s pricing gave the center three out of five stars in this category.
