Program Description: The Haven, in operation since 1992, is a 65-bed Modified Therapeutic Community (TC) providing treatment for women with chronic substance use disorders and co-occurring mental health. The Haven is unique in that it allows pregnant women and women with infant children to reside in treatment together. While in treatment, clients receive services that not only focus on recovery from substances and maintenance of mental health, but treatment that focuses on social functioning, education/vocational skills, and positive community and family ties. Participants learn to be accountable to the TC community through a hierarchical model of treatment stages that reflect increased levels of personal and social responsibility.
