Our Therapeutic Community Approach
We use a therapeutic community approach at Marty Mann House. This group-based approach involves residents who are further along in their recovery helping those who are just beginning.
Experienced residents serve as role models, while our staff serves as facilitators and guides. Women live and work together to form a community of respect, trust, support and encouragement.
With others by your side you can find the courage you need to heal.
For many, recovery involves learning or reestablishing healthy skills and values, as well as gaining emotional and physical health. At Marty Mann House, an understanding community surrounds each woman as she develops coping skills, personal responsibility, relationship skills, self-respect and how to live a sober life.
“I am shocked by how much I have learned about myself and how much I have changed for the better. Thank you. I will never forget!”
Treatment at Marty Mann House is medium intensity level of care. The program is for adult women, ages 18 years and older, who are alcohol and/or drug dependent. Staff members are in place 24/7 to offer assistance and support for those going through the recovery process.
