At The Haven, we believe that extraordinary people live in recovery on a daily basis and that with the right commitment and treatment, anyone can overcome their substance use dependency and achieve a better quality of life. As an influential leader in the community, The Haven’s non-profit mission is to offer the highest quality prevention and treatment services for women who, but for our program, would be homeless and hopeless. The Haven offers women ‘Recovery with Respect’ while encouraging their spiritual, intellectual, emotional and physical development. We value affordable, safe, state-of-the-art substance abuse therapy that puts the Client and their Family first. Our focus on women and the acceptance of their children into residence is unique in our community.
