Admission and Pricing

BRH-263-web.jpgAll residents must have completed a stay at The Retreat’s residential program prior to moving to Ruxton House. Usually people who have stayed at The Retreat previously, but are not coming directly from The Retreat, will require readmission to The Retreat for a time to determine their appropriateness for Ruxton House, and whether they would benefit from supported community living.

All Ruxton House residents must be willing to abide by the house rules and contribute to the welfare of the community. Residents are expected to practice complete sobriety during their stay. People whose symptoms are too acute for Ruxton House will be offered admission to The Retreat or another appropriate level of care.

At Ruxton House, we generally treat patients recovering from serious mood disorders, debilitating anxiety, personality disorders, or other disabling psychiatric conditions, who need a bit more time before they feel ready to return to their home environments. Ruxton House residents may also have a substance use or addiction issue in addition to psychological challenges. Many residents decide to come to The Retreat because we are able to provide them with longer-term treatment at Ruxton House once they have successfully completed their time at The Retreat. For many, the option for a longer-term stay is very comforting.

Payment Policies

The Retreat and its programs, including Ruxton House, do not participate with any insurance plans. All care is privately funded. An initial non-refundable prepayment equal to four weeks must accompany each patient at admission. Subsequently, residents are expected to pay in advance of receiving ongoing care.

The daily rate varies depending upon accommodations, from $525-$850 per day and is inclusive of meals, case management, and programming. Other treatment, including individual sessions, outpatient DBT program, TMS, and other offerings, are billed separately.

Length of Stay

All residents are required to commit to at least a four-week stay, although many stay for several months or longer depending on their pace of recovery and clinical needs.
