Overview

Faith House: Faith House is dedicated to helping women and their families recover from addiction to alcohol and/or drugs.  Faith House provides a variety of rehabilitative services in a supportive residential environment. This 6-month program serves more than 20 women who are linked to community resources that help them and their families regain and maintain a stable lifestyle.

 

Because substance abuse devastates not only the individual, but the family and the community as well, Faith House provides education about addiction, self-esteem, and coping skills. Treatment plans are designed to meet the specific needs of each woman and stress individual empowerment. An interdisciplinary team provides therapeutic services and individual counseling.
