Amethyst House

645 North Walnut Street
Bloomington, IN - 47403

We operate three transitional housing facilities in Bloomington: a 17 bed Men's Halfway House, a 10 bed Women's Halfway house that also serves dependent children up to age 6, and a 4 bed Men's three-quarter-way House. Approximately, 90% of our clients are homeless.

In addition to our transitional housing program, Amethyst offers a full-range of outpatient treatment services in Bloomington.
Priority admission to all services is given to pregnant women and IV drug users. Also, any counseling services for Problem Gambling are offered free of charge (per state guidelines); this also applies for most services when treating gambling and substance abuse issues together. Discounts are available for the transitional program as well.

Amethyst House offers an Outpatient Treatment Program, a Men's and Women's Halfway House as well as a Men's 3/4 House.

Individuals who are interested in Outpatient Treatment should call (812) 336-3570 to schedule an assessment. We are typically scheduled two weeks out for our first available appointment.
If you are interested in our Residential Program, please fill out an application (available on our website) and submit a TB test and Health Physical. Staff will then contact you for an interview.

Free services are offered to individuals seeking help with gambling issues, and discounts are available for transitional housing services and seeking services for substance abuse issues at the same time.
Residential ProgramThe Amethyst House Women's and Men's Residential Programs provide transitional housing and supportive services for women and men ages 18 and over with chemical dependency and/or Gambling Addiction. Residents are required to secure a job and become financially secure, attend our Outpatient Treatment Program, and start a support network through attending AA or NA meetings. Our Program Fees are based on a sliding scale. Residents receive weekly case management and learn life skills while in our program. Amethyst House prefers that clients have the first month's rent at time of admission. Clients can enroll, through the criminal justice system, in the Recovery Works program to receive free outpatient services and a discount in their monthly housing fees. Free outpatient services are offered to individuals addressing problem gambling issues. We offer preferential admission for pregnant women and IV drug users. Women can have their dependent children up to the age of 6 living with them at the house (on a case by case basis / space is limited). A potential client needs to be clean and sober for a minimum of five days before coming into the house unless they are transferring from a hospital or detox center.

Priority is given to women who are pregnant and/or an IV user.
