FAQ about treatment programs and services at Hannah’s House:

What can I expect when I call an Admissions Specialist?
When you call, we will conduct a confidential phone assessment. This assessment will help us determine if Hannah’s House is the most appropriate treatment center for you or your loved one. Our compassionate team will answer any of your questions to ensure that we can best meet your individual needs. If Hannah’s House is not a fit for you or your family, we will work with our team to find an appropriate facility that can meet your needs.
Will I have to discuss my life with dozens of people?
When you call us, you will be assigned an Admission Specialist who is responsible for overseeing your entire journey. You will not be passed between staff members. We understand that talking about addiction and your personal life can be uncomfortable and difficult. Our goal is to make your experience as comfortable as possible, from your first call and throughout your entire stay.
What if my family member needs an intervention?
Often, the person suffering from addiction is the last one to become aware that they need help. Addiction is a disease, and denial is a hallmark trait afflicting those who are suffering. Our Admissions Specialists can work with families and loved ones to determine if a professional intervention may be beneficial. We understand that confronting a loved one about their addiction is one of the hardest things you will have to do. Keep in mind, even in these situations, recovery is still possible.

It is a common misconception that people cannot or will not recover “unless they are really willing and have hit their own bottom.” Fortunately, there is evidence-based data that suggests outcomes are similar for people who complete treatment, regardless of what got them into treatment (court, intervention, etc.).

What will my costs be for treatment?
The cost of residential care includes detox, psychiatric care, medical care staffed with round-the-clock nurses, individual therapies, housing, and meals. Speak with an Admissions Specialist for specifics regarding cost and insurance options. We work with most insurance policies.
Does Hannah’s House provide detox services?
Hannah’s House offers onsite medically supervised inpatient detoxification, which is included as the first phase of the treatment process. All medical needs and detoxification protocols will be assessed by the extensive medical team at Hannah’s House. We strive to make each detox process as safe and comfortable as possible.
What family involvement is included in the treatment process?

At Hannah’s House, we know that addiction and alcoholism are family diseases that can affect the entire family system. Our goal is to heal the whole family. Families are encouraged to participate in our multiday Family Program, which combines education, support, and therapeutic interaction with the patient as well as with other families. After admission, our Family Program team will call to discuss Family Program options and dates.

Do you treat co-occurring mental disorders such as depression and bipolar disorder?
Yes. Many women suffering from addiction also suffer from co-occurring mental disorders such as depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorders. These common co-occurring conditions must be treated at the same time as addiction. Hannah’s House provides psychiatric evaluation, assessments, and medication management as well as fully integrated psychological therapy and counseling services.
Does Hannah’s House offer 12-Step substance use disorder treatment?
Treatment at Hannah’s House is based on the 12-Step paradigm and coupled with evidence-based clinical therapies, medical treatments, and spiritual care. We treat the whole person: body, mind, and spirit.
What is the layout of Hannah’s House campus?
Hannah’s House is located on a beautiful resort-grade setting in South Padre Island, TX. With access to plenty of outdoor open spaces, this welcoming, women’s only residence, offers ample meeting areas, as well as comfortable spaces to quietly relax. This women’s-only facility is on the beach and boasts a wraparound porch where you can enjoy evening sunsets over the water.
Is there any follow-up after discharge?
Alumni Care Coordinators at Hannah’s House begins working on aftercare plans well before discharge. Additionally, we offer a lifetime of support through our Alumni Services team. We host workshops in various cities nationwide, and also offer an annual Alumni Reunion celebration on South Padre Island, TX each October.
Why choose Hannah’s House? What makes it different than other addiction treatment centers?
Hannah’s House specializes in evidence-based, innovative, gender-separate programming for women. We excel at treating co-occurring mental health conditions, and we provide quality medical care during detox and throughout treatment.

Our team addresses concerns that are unique to the female experience, such as school and work troubles, toxic relationships, marriage troubles, and trauma.
