Residential Treatment

The Havens residential program has been in operation since 1969 providing quality care and treatment services to a diverse population that is 18 years of age and older.

Providing high-quality care and therapy services to a varied community of adults 18 years of age and beyond, the Havens Residential Program has been in operation since 1969. To assist the person in recovering from the problems related to drug usage, the organization takes satisfaction in employing evidence-based therapy strategies. Although The Havens is primarily a substance use disorder treatment center, it also addresses trauma, life skills, housing, healthcare access, family reunification, legal matters, work, mental health, and pro-social peer groups.

At The Haven: Expert Clinical Care Team

We exclusively hire the most highly qualified and educated people to work on our clinical team at The Haven, which allows us to offer these programs. Accredited in the modalities they are enabling; these clinicians possess not only education but also certification. This group includes peer support specialists, licensed mental health therapists, psychologists, masters level therapists, and counselors for substance use disorders. Every person receiving services can have their needs met by this dynamic team through the facilitation and implementation of programming.

What to Expect

Because the completion date of the Residential Program is determined by the requirements of the individual, not by the length of time they have been engaged in services, there is no set time limit. Once an individual has completed self-established goals in consultation with their therapist, The Haven lowers their level of care.

Along with case management, weekly family seminars, volunteerism, team building, life skills training, individual therapy, and recreation, The Havens Residential Program offers these services. There are several different types of groups available at The Haven, including peer-driven groups, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, moral reconation therapy, seeking safety, shame resilience, self-defeating behaviors, and the Sanctuary Model, which addresses trauma-related issues. By involving the patient in the healing process, these approaches are quite successful in bringing about personal transformation.

Gender-Specific Programming

Substance use is experienced differently by men and women. According to data, gender should be considered when analyzing patterns of substance use, including overall prevalence rates and preferred substances.

Treatment Specifically
for Women

Women-specific programs are a useful option for some since women have different needs than males when it comes to getting treatment for substance use disorders. In a secure and encouraging setting, women can talk to one another about issues like parenthood, relationships, and family life.

Gender-specific programs may be especially helpful for women who are beginning treatment for addiction following a traumatic experience. In group therapy with male patients, women who have been sexually, physically, or verbally abused by males might not feel comfortable talking about these experiences. Women's sense of value and worth are frequently impacted by abuse, and female clients might not feel comfortable talking about these subjects in a group setting with men. Treatment tailored to the gender can also be beneficial for mothers struggling with addiction. While being away from children while undergoing treatment can be challenging, female clients are able to discuss what it's like to have battled a substance abuse disorder while attempting to care for their families with the help of other women and trained professionals.

Women who receive gender-specific treatment are given unwavering compassion and support as they heal from their substance use disorder. In women-specific treatment, women are able to empower one another and form a strong support network that equips them with the life skills necessary to sustain successful post-recovery lives.

Treatment Specifically
for Men

When it comes to rehabilitation for substance use disorders, males have unique demands that are typically influenced by stereotypes and cultural norms associated with men. Because they worry about being judged or seen as weak, males are often reluctant to seek treatment. Gender-specific programs can make male clients feel more welcomed and at ease. It also usually takes males longer than women to be vulnerable and share their feelings or challenges. As a result, some therapeutic approaches are typically more beneficial to men than others. Men, for instance, respond more favorably to treatment approaches that focus on certain thought patterns and behaviors as opposed to introspection. Male-specific treatment addresses the unique physical, mental, and emotional requirements of men.

Another significant problem that gender-specific treatment tackles but is sometimes disregarded in conventional treatment settings is male sexual abuse. In an environment when just one gender is present, sexual abuse—a very sensitive subject for men—can be discussed more candidly and openly. Programs designed specifically for men offer a compassionate setting in which they can form bonds with one another and create a network of support with the goal to achieve long-term recovery.
