Treatment at Michael’s House
Michael’s House programs offer men and women ages 18 and up an integrated in-patient treatment program. Our staff is specially trained in The Foundations Treatment Model to address the complex needs of individuals with co-occurring disorders and addictions issues.
The facility offers comprehensive, medically supervised detoxification services and individualized integrated services for individuals with addictive and/or mental health conditions. Treatment at Michael’s House includes introduction to 12-step principles, daily group and individual therapy and life skills classes. Residential program participants enjoy delicious and nutritious food, an exercise weight room, meditation and quiet time, daily recreational opportunities, and other healthful and fun leisure activities that take advantage of the spectacular location and local scenery.
For those who need a more intensive and longer-term rehab program to ensure long-term abstinence, our Extended Care Program offers more time to heal, learn and adjust to a new life in recovery. This treatment program offers additional structure, focused attention, and safety for chemically dependent and dually diagnosed patients. Every treatment plan at Michael’s House is tailored for that individual’s specific needs.

Michael’s House History
Arlene Rosen, president of Michael’s House, remembers watching a television show while her son was still alive. “A woman was talking about her schizophrenic son,” Rosen recalls, “and as she went on, it became uncanny – she was describing my son. It was Michael.”
When the show ended, Rosen went to the telephone and tracked down the woman she had just watched. “We talked,” she continues, “and it turned out her son, whom she had discussed as a schizophrenic personality, was in reality a drug addict. Just like Michael.”
According to Rosen, there is a social stigma attached to drug addiction that can cause the parents, relatives and friends of the addict to remain in denial. Cancer is socially acceptable. Leukemia is. Psychological problems are. But AIDS isn’t. And neither is drug addiction.”
Michael Alan Rosen was a child born to wealth and privilege who attended grammar school in Bel Air and went to camp with Ron Reagan. After graduating from Beverly Hills High School he attended Menlo College, where in his sophomore year he was voted class president. Handsome, gregarious, and rich, by his senior year he had become a professional racecar driver. At the age of 25, Michael Rosen was found dead in his hotel room in the Fiji Islands. Recently out of a drug rehab program and not wanting his girlfriend to see him relapse, he had locked her out of their room.
In memory of her son, Rosen started the nonprofit Michael Alan Rosen Foundation which now runs Michael’s House, a program for chemically dependent and dually diagnosed individuals.
