After years of helping men get sober, Kim and Billy felt they needed to bring the InnerVisions’ model of recovery to women as well. Together they fought hard to get a women’s treatment centre, and finally in 2002 their efforts came to fruition when Hannah House opened its’ doors. Hannah House, named so for the Hebrew meaning “grace of God”, has operated since as one of the top Women’s treatment facilities in Canada. Every day women find an escape from the ugliness of their addiction by coming through the doors of Hannah House.
Hannah House is abstinence based drug treatment for women. Participation in our drug treatment program requires that all women stay clean and sober for the duration of their stay.
Since 2002, Hannah House has been providing a safe and nurturing drug and alcohol treatment program that encompasses the Twelve Step philosophy so that women can learn to love themselves.
Our drug treatment program provides a solid foundation in the recovery process. Hannah House is perfect for women who need a temporary absence from their present stressful environment and for women who require total immersion in a treatment setting. We have zero tolerance for drug or alcohol use after someone has been admitted into our program.
Hannah House uses a 60-day drug treatment model that gives women the opportunity to learn the Twelve Step program and implement it in their lives. In some cases, clients may ask for an extension of time depending on their aftercare plan.
We have access to private, second stage houses that are designed to provide structure and safety after the 60-day drug program at Hannah House. As long as clients are making progress and adhering to the rules, they are permitted to reside there for up to two years.
The staff at Hannah House have extensive working knowledge of the particular barriers that many women face while they overcome their addiction to drugs and alcohol.
We strive to provide the best care, shelter, and drug treatment for women. We focus on creating a supportive community where women can feel safe and supported while they recover and start their lives over.
