The Sobering Center – Therapeutic Shelter

The Sobering Center is a 16-bed therapeutic shelter that provides recovery-based support services to individuals with a substance use disorder. Our goal is to provide a safe, substance free, therapeutic, non-medical respite for the chemically dependent individual upon waiting to be referred and placed into the next level of appropriate care.

We provide case management services to all our residents, based upon their individualized recovery plan and identified needs. Through our trained staff, we provide and facilitate a number of recovery-based support services for chemically dependent individuals.
