The Haven is a substance abuse crisis residential (short term) treatment center located in Dothan, Alabama. The philosophy of the Haven is that chemical dependency is a psychosocial, bio-genetic disease that when properly treated can enable an individual to live a chemically free lifestyle, indefinitely, without relapse provided he/she maintains a long term recovery program. Upon admission to the Haven, the client will be assigned a primary therapist who is responsible for devising and implementing a well defined, realistic individualized treatment plan for resolving clinical issues blocking the client’s efforts of achieving long term sobriety. The program offers services to clients in a setting that provides extensive and intensive therapy and educational services, as well as food and shelter. The core functions of the Haven include a full time residential environment, all meals; group, individual and family therapy; supportive counseling; substance abuse education; case coordination; continuing care planning, and emergency medical response. Treatment plans are individualized, but include individual counseling, group therapy, family therapy, lectures and discussion, family strengthening groups, recreation therapy, AA/NA meetings and a weekly continuing care program. The Haven can accommodate up to 26 male and 10 female residents. Length of stay averages 14 to 28 days.
