the path of wellness is one of the pillars of recovery

You Design Your Post-rehab Wellness Program and We Help you Stay on Track 

We support the woman who wants to follow her own right path and create her program of wellness.

In addiction, there's a moment when we have clarity and decide to leave behind our old life. One of the four pillars begins with building a wellness program. Our in-house

coaches, near-by experienced clinicians are here as supports as you make your life into a sober, life-affirming force. 

The first year of recovery life is fragile

We have good working relationships with the area's clinicians and, now since the advent of Covid-19, we are also developing good long distance relationships with mental health experts from the various rehabs that refer to us. Clinical professionals bring an important healing element for support and healing of each and every woman for sustaining her recovery. As always, we hope that residents move toward self-observation and accountability.

Experientials with horses

Our program includes horses at Westbrook Hunt Club and other animals at the Farm Animal Rescue. The research states that horses are “perfect mirrors, since they are very emotional beings” which allows those participating in equine therapy to experience human-like interactions with someone that doesn't shame or guilt. Imagine having reactions to events that are not intertwined with an ego; good, bad or apathetic, they are simply your feelings.

We offer a yoga studio membership

Getting physical is a great way to relieve stress, distract yourself from circular thinking, build healthy habits and re-orient your mind. Getting physically active and eating right literally results in feeling the natural rewards of dopamine while also charging self-awareness and  empowerment. The rewards of connection and friendship are a natural result of many facets of our house, but especially the ones involving those fun, physical activities that we take turns planning.

"Interesting Topic"

We ask that each women who comes here prepare a lesson for the rest of us. It can be on any topic which she considers herself an expert. Some examples are cooking class, eye health, photography, dog training, setting up a non-profit, etc. We believe becoming a lifelong learner is critical to recovery. It reflects the opposite of being the "know-it-all" we may have been in addiction.

Rediscover your spiritual code

Recovery allows us the chance to grow again.  Reclaiming your values or your moral compass becomes important for many who enter long term recovery. We offer meditation practice because becoming present is one of the best ways we know to become mindful and rekindle the relationship you had with your soulful self. Using the 12-steps in addressing "soul" in terms of recovery may mean examining your attitude toward life and deciding "how" to use the talents that you have.  Living with others may mean honoring a set of values that help you determine where you really belong in this world.

We have art and crafts on Friday nights. We complete projects that reflect the 12-steps.

After rehab, in-home care, and/or extended care, we think sober living is the next logical step toward recovery life. From SAMHSA research, we offer the four pillars of recovery: (1) community, (some life skill support,) (2) mental and physical wellness; including membership at the gym and yoga studio, an emphasis on whole food in shared evening meals, and professional therapy delivered from the surrounding community, (3) finding purpose in work or school and (4) re-integrating into a re-structured family dynamic or a new home. We welcome those with or without a history of treatment .
