  • Aftercare Support

Rehabs 360 Guide


Founded in 1970, Bethany Hall provides evidence-based, family-friendly substance abuse treatment to adult women. The facility is among 20.7% programs in the state with specialized programming for pregnant and post-partum women. Located in Roanoke, Va., the center offers long-term residential treatment for pregnant women, postpartum women, and mothers with children. Detox is not provided on-site, and women must be medically stable prior to admission.


An application must be filled out for admission, which is typically followed by a phone interview. Before being admitted, clients must have had a TB test within the past year, provide verification of pregnancy (if applicable), and pass a drug and alcohol screening. Postpartum women can bring one infant six months or younger with them to treatment, making this one of 17 facilities in Virginia that provide childcare services for the children of clients.

Treatment at Bethany Hall is holistic and utilizes a Therapeutic Community (TC) approach. This requires clients to participate in group-based activities to learn how to effectively communicate with peers and staff, as well as maintain accountability (keeping personal areas clean, etc.) and problem solve when group issues arise. Women also learn and follow the 12-step methodology, regularly attending 12-step meetings.

Clients generally stay in treatment up to 120 days, but there is no limit placed on their stay. Facility monitoring is provided 24/7 by the staff in order to address client’s needs at any time.

Family reconciliation and involvement is encouraged throughout the treatment process. During the first two weeks of treatment, clients can not have visitors but can contact them through mail or limited phone calls. After those two weeks, visitations are allowed on Sundays with phone privileges throughout the rest of the week. Visitations are closely monitored and visitors are not allowed to bring anything.

A 12-month aftercare program is offered to graduate, if necessary, and includes recovery and housing support.


Bethany Hall is staffed by a team of certified therapists and social workers with advanced degrees and certifications in social work and substance abuse treatment.


All bedrooms at Bethany House are on the second floor of the facility’s Victorian home, so residents must be able to climb stairs. Clients stay in shared rooms with one other client. All meals are prepared and eaten as a group. The facility does not permit smoking anywhere on the premises, however, nicotine replacement methods may be used if needed. The two alumni surveyed by Rehabs.com gave the facility five stars for the facility's cleanliness.


The two alumni polled by Rehabs.com to date gave the facility positive reviews, both offering four- or five-star ratings for the effectiveness of individual counseling, the respect shown to clients, group counseling, facility safety, and level of staff support. "We learned to identify, confront and deal with our emotions," Teresa wrote, while alum Kelly added: "Treatment is intense, but facilitates major changes in a relatively short period of time."

On Google, one alum gave five out of five stars to date.[1] “Bethany Hall shines a light & shows the way to find the answer,” alum Kathi wrote. On its unofficial Facebook page, there is a single five out of five-star review and a low one-star review.[2] The negative review from Jennifer indicated some possible negative practices from staff members. “The staff report hand off is severely lacking. In return the patients are punished and in some situations dismissed from the program due to poor communication across staff members,” Jennifer wrote.


Bethany Hall offers a fee schedule for residential treatment. The fees include $90 per day for adult women, $110 per day for women with children, and $120 a day for pregnant/postpartum women. These fees can be paid using self-pay methods. Bethany Hall is also one of the 62% of U.S. facilities that accepts Medicaid but on a limited, needs-based basis for pregnant women.


Bethany Hall partners with a lot of organizations in the community to provide services and help to those in need. One of its recent partnerships is with New Freedom Farms to provide equine therapy. Bethany Hall was also featured on a local radio station, WSLS 10, for the services that it provides to the community.
