Healing Encourages Recovery Freedom House (H.E.R. Freedom House, Women’s Supervised House)
Recovery Housing is an essential service for many people seeking long-term recovery. H.E.R. Freedom House offers 24-hour staffed housing for single women and women with children (up to age 8).
Women residing in our level III recovery house are typically involved in intensive outpatient treatment. Individual sessions occur more frequently than women residing in our lower level housing, thus receiving more structure and support.
Women work together to make family meals and maintain the cleanliness of the home. They attend 12-step meetings as a group and therapy services together. There is no particular length of stay; however, most women remain in this level of housing for about 45 days before they transfer to a less structured environment.
This program is staffed 24 hours a day with professional caring staff. Women work together, as a family, to prepare meals and maintain their living environment. This house is designed for women and women with children who need an environment that is not as intensive at a residential facility, but is more intensive than level II housing. The environment is highly structured.
Treatment occurs offsite, while all other supportive services occur in the house. Women remain in this level III house until they complete their established goals and are ready to move into less structured housing.
Wehler Recovery House (for women)
We understand the importance of the social model of recovery and our recovery houses embody this model. The Wehler House is a 10-bedroom house offering unlimited length of stay to women in recovery.
To support a lifestyle of recovery, the women have weekly house meetings, chores and accountability to one another. Wehler offers a beautiful home-like environment with over $300,000 in renovations. It is typical for women to remain in this environment for two years or longer.
Dimensions Recovery House (for women & children)
Dimensions is a recovery house for women with children. There are 12 beds with six dedicated for women and the other six for children living with their mothers.
As with the other homes, we foster a home-like environment and an atmosphere of support, encouragement and accountability.
Most women in housing are employed and demonstrate significant stability in their recovery programs overtime. A case manager is assigned to each participant in the house to assist with life skills and linkage to community resources.
