Our new programs for women combine more than 50 years of drug and alcohol treatment experience of Ohlhoff Recovery Programs with the freshly renovated, safe homestead of a sober living environment. Our 8 bed facility offers stabilization to women in early recovery (less than 30 days clean and sober), and transitional support to working women with more than 30 days of sobriety. Our programs value a holistic approach to recovery and work towards creating an environment that nurtures mind, body, spirit, family and community.
