Treatment Insights

Eden Hill Recovery Retreat is a Transitional Living Program for women in early recovery. Our peaceful and private home, a lovingly-restored farmhouse that sits on an 18-acre property, is the perfect setting to cultivate the growth initiated in inpatient treatment and build it into habitual self-care and long-term recovery. With accommodations for twelve residents, we are able to offer maximal attention and create the ideal treatment plan for each woman. Living a substance free life involves many changes in a woman's daily routine. Going directly home after inpatient treatment can be overwhelming and too often results in a relapse. Transitional Living offers a safe, supportive and structured environment for women to bravely face these enormous changes through therapy, community and compassion. Our extended care women's program offers a comprehensive approach to treating alcohol, substance use, and co-occuring disorders. Treatment includes 24/7 care from dedicated professionals, three daily groups, and weekly individual psychotherapy with one of our licensed therapists. As the personalized plans and regular schedule are integrated into each women's life at Eden Hill, they serve as a blueprint for leading healthy, fulfilling, sober lives at home.

Areas of Focus
Aftercare Support

Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.

Family Program

Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
