What We Do

Hope Haven is a Therapeutic Community that provides a foundation of recovery for individuals and families impacted by substance use disorder so they can build healthy independent lives. 

We are the area's only residential recovery program serving both individuals and families in crisis, including single moms with kids, single dads with kids, and two parent households. Individuals and families stay with us for up to two years while they participate in professional counseling with Trauma-Informed clinicians, workforce development programs, and parenting education, and then receive assistance in finding employment and safe, affordable permanent housing.
