MISSION: Healing House, Inc. is a substance use disorder recovery organization. Our mission is to enrich the lives and spiritual well-being of all we serve and improve the safety and welfare of our community by equipping each participant with resources to maintain a healthy, self-sufficient, and purposeful life.

VISION: Our vision is that everyone who needs recovery from substance use disorder would have access to safe, stable housing and the necessary support services to promote lifelong healing, family reunification, and community transformation.

Since 2002, Healing House has provided recovery housing and support that assists both men and women to experience long-term recovery from substance use disorders.  Nearly 200 individuals on any given day reside in our fourteen private homes and two apartment buildings. Last year we served over 1,100 individuals, helping them on the road to recovery and meaningful drug- and alcohol-free lives.

If you or someone you know is seeking help with addiction recovery, consider Healing House, Inc. Our approach to helping men and women in recovery addresses the entire tri-fold aspect of addiction; mental, physical, and spiritual. Our experienced staff is made up of instructors, counselors, and peer support specialists. They are equipped to share tools and knowledge that help program participants to achieve and maintain lifelong sobriety.
