The Steward House at Silver Hill

Intensive Mental Health and Substance Use Recovery
The Steward House at Silver Hill
A refuge for treatment and healing exclusively for high-achieving professionals and executives

Ascending to the upper reaches of your career can be invigorating and challenging. With it comes the personal fulfillment of achievement and the satisfaction of effective leadership. It also brings increased expectations, accountability and pressure. Coupled with the responsibilities of home, family, and your own health and happiness, what was once exciting can quickly become overwhelming.

With pressure from all directions, the impacts of substance use and mental health problems quickly ripple through all parts of your life.

If your struggle reaches a moment of crisis, undergoing treatment in a place where you feel comfortable and understood is paramount to recovery. A private, safe place where you can heal alongside peers facing the same struggle, with the support of a highly professional clinical team, and in an environment cultivated with high-achievers like you in mind. A place like The Steward House at Silver Hill.

Fees for Treatment

Transitional living programs are not typically covered by health insurance plans, and are most often a direct expense for patients or their families. Some insurance policies may cover a small portion of the cost. Our staff will help you determine whether you have benefits that allow coverage for some of the costs of this program and, if you do, we will seek authorization from your insurance company to use your benefit.
