What am I allowed to bring to Chapman House?
Generally, clients will bring one week’s worth of clothing. We have laundry facilities for exclusive use by our client. Weapons and non-prescribed drugs are not permitted.
Can I contact my loved ones staying at Chapman House?
Yes, you may contact loved ones through your counselor or by speaking to them direct on their evening free time.
What is aftercare?
Aftercare is a plan that is devised between our staff and the client for what they will do upon discharge from the program. When a person enters our treatment programs, we begin the aftercare and follow-up process within the first week of admission. This helps the client to be prepared upon discharge.
What insurances do you accept?
We accept all forms of PPO insurance, and we are in contract with many HMO’s. Please call our Intake Coordinator to check your benefits in just minutes.
What is the difference between sober living and a halfway house?
Sober-living is a cooperative living arrangement between people whom chose to reside with recovering people 24/7; at least until one feels secure enough to return home. About 30%-40% of our clients choose to go on to sober-living after treatment here. It is where people go to maintain what they have acquired long enough to practice the principles acquired in treatment at Chapman House.
A halfway house is for inmates leaving prison, and may or may not mandate sobriety as a condition of living there. Each State has its own procedures for this. A halfway house is not necessarily related to sober-living.
What is the length of stay?
Each client’s needs are unique, and a specific treatment plan is written to their particular issues. However, between detox phase and treatment phase we find an average of a 45-day stay.
What is your policy on guests?
Guests are welcome if they agree to participate in the family program one night per week and they are supportive of the client’s recovery.
What does a typical day in treatment look like?
Our client’s spend each day in a variety of therapeutic activities. To name a few: Group therapy, art therapy, individual therapy, exercise, educational workshops and free time to relax, heal, absorb your newly found techniques of living well, and aftercare planning.
What can I expect from detox?
You can expect to meet with your physician, and plan the course of medications that will safely and comfortably titrate you down off of the substances in your body.
Can I just get detox without entering inpatient or outpatient treatment?
Yes. However, we recommend you follow our recommendations after detox. Outpatient therapy can be attended one to six days per week (day treatment), or as an aftercare follow-up program. Intervention and individual counseling, psychotherapy and psychological testing is also available, conducted by our Clinical Psychologist.
