1.      Treatment

Sure Haven offers its clients a full continuum of care, including detoxification services, residential, PHP & IOP, and aftercare. The professional staff works hard to empower clients with the recovery tools and life skills needed to achieve long-term success and a fulfilled life. Patients here live in an all-female environment where they can safely learn more about their addiction, self-awareness, and behaviors.

In order to smoothly transition into society, the center provides Academics, Volunteering, and Employment opportunities to its clients. This approach, called AVEnues, is available to patients in partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, and outpatient programs.

Furthermore, Sure Haven also offers detox services on-site and patients are evaluated through a team of care practitioners, therapists, and case managers. After completing detox, patients transition into the residential program.

Each client is assigned a case manager and therapist to work together on developing an individualized treatment plan. Moreover, rehabbers attend group, individual, and educational sessions, including off-site 12-step meetings. These sessions incorporate relapse prevention, communication skills, relationship groups, process groups, meditation groups, as well as nutrition groups. Apart from nutrition, the center also encourages physical fitness and outdoor activities.

The center’s PHP is the next step following residential treatment. The key components of this program are enhancing life skills, massage therapies, self-management and recovery training, as well as many experiential therapies. During this program, patients begin with their participation into the AVEnues Program and work on their existing skills, past education, and their career goals. In addition, the IOP helps clients reintegrate back into the community and how to apply their new-found life skills more independently.

Sure Haven helped me find a sober living. I am so grateful for all they did for me. They helped give my daughter her mother back, and helped me become the sister, aunt, daughter, and friend I was meant to be. I have a job, a home, family and friends that love me. And am happy and alive spiritually on the inside. Life is better than I ever in my wildest dreams could have imagined. Thank you so much Sure Haven. – M.M

Their billing department is a disaster, I am currently fighting to get information to my insurance company that has been requested since 11/7/14 so I don’t have to repay every cent they received. They are non-responsive, don’t send information to the courts if you request it, don’t follow up with insurance required information, and tried to run all our credit cards three times for any approved amount. It has been a nightmare, and is still going on for us. – J.P

This place did not help keep me sober at all. Nor did they even try to touch the source of my trauma. Shame on YOU, Sure Haven. The faculty members that really cared left when I was there over a year ago. Their staff now consists of a bunch of addicts now addicted to AA that haven’t dealt with THEIR trauma. – Kelly

You will never regret sending your love one to this rehab!!!! Remember it is up to the individual to follow the program to make it a success. – K.G
