The Haven has a special place in the hearts of past residents, family, and member of the recovery community. Our alumni association is the glue that makes a long-term recovery path possible. Our alumni show up to offer support and their experience because of the impact The Haven has had on their live. This alumni culture is not something that you can create on paper or in a conference room. This has evolved organically from the alumni and their involvement. It is often referred to as “The Haven Magic”.
“Recovery that lasts” is our hope for every client from the first day of contact. The Haven alumni reflect a culture of gratitude. They remember where their recovery began and have an honest desire to pass this to the next struggling addict. Offering a life-long community of people who have recovered is a key ingredient for successful outcomes. To improve the quality of life for all it will take a community. “On my own I often struggle, but together we shall conquer!”.
A long-term recovery path is voiced from day one. Our hope is to break the cycle of continued substance abuse and offer a new way of living.
The Haven Alumni promote a new path in life by modeling a healthy recovery lifestyle. “Adulting with integrity” is our theme. Providing structure and getting involved with the recovery community cultivates self-efficacy for those that participate.
12-step involvement is encouraged, but we also know there are many paths to recovery. Most of our Alumni having maintained long-term recovery have implemented the 12-step process into their lives.
The Haven alumni association offers a life-long opportunity. Recreation adventures, recovery events, acts of service, and regular alumni meetings are the corner our hope that: Yes, you too can recover!
We offer residential treatment services, as well as safe and supportive transitional housing in The
Haven’s Sober Living Program. We provide services for veterans, individuals with little to no
income, justice involved, and who are homeless or have unstable and unsupportive housing.
