What do you treat?

Our primary focus at The Guest House Ocala is trauma and the underlying issues causing self-defeating behaviors including addiction, anxiety and depression.

Do you take insurance?

We are a private pay facility, but we can work with some insurance policies to assist with reimbursement. We encourage you to call the admissions department with any financial or insurance questions — our helpful staff can assess your individual situation and help determine what we can do for you.

Who is the population you work with?

The Guest House Ocala welcomes men and women over the age of 18. It is our policy to accept guests regardless of race, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation and gender/sexual identification.

What is your length of stay?

We are a 90 day program. However, we understand that some people are not able to stay that long because of other obligations. In these cases, we ask for at least a 30 day commitment.

Am I able to work or do online school while I am in treatment?

Because we are a small, intimate program, we are able to be flexible to your schedule. As long as your obligations are not a distraction from your healing and you clear it through your primary therapist it is possible to take care of small work and school responsibilities during your stay.

What therapeutic modalities do you use?

We are fortunate to have a wonderful staff of clinicians, each with their own specialties. They are all Certified Trauma Therapists with years of experience in their fields. The clinical staff is trained in many experiential modalities including conscious connected breathwork, equine therapy, somatic experiencing, art in healing, grief therapy, mindfulness and others.

Is the family involved in treatment?

Yes, we believe the family is imperative to our guests’ healing. We individualize our family program to each guest’s needs and their family’s availability. In addition, we do private intensive workshops for families.

Can I bring my phone/computer?

You may bring your cell phone for travel, but we want our guests to be engaged and present in the therapeutic process so we will hold any electronics while you are in our care. You will be able to check your phone out with clinical approval to make calls and check emails during approved time frames.

What do I bring?

Comfortable casual clothes — no more than 10 days’ worth — that can fit in a large suitcase and carry on. We provide washers and dryers. You may bring your own toiletries as long as they do not have alcohol in the ingredients. You may want to bring a favorite blanket or pillow, although we provide plenty. Anything small that is sentimental that makes you feel at home, like photos or small stuffed animals, is permitted and encouraged. We would also love for you to bring old photos of yourself that we can use for therapeutic purposes. You will be able to get out to the store, and our staff can assist you in acquiring necessities as they arise.

Do you treat just addiction?

Our specialty is treating the effects of deep-rooted trauma — this includes addiction, but also includes mental health issues like anxiety, depression or eating disorders. Many people who struggle with addiction or a mental health disorder do not even realize that their struggle stems from an underlying issue such as childhood trauma, grief, stress or burnout. With an experienced staff of clinicians trained in Judy Crane’s model of treatment, we find these deep-seated causes of whatever is ailing you and heal your troubles from the inside, out.
