The women sleep in bunk beds in spacious bedrooms that are also furnished with dressers. There are two full bathrooms with granite countertops.

Rules and Regulations
Bisous Haven is referred to as an “all the way” house. In order to remain in the program the clients have to fully commit to their recovery. Consequently, there are random drug screenings every week. If any of the women fail the tests they are immediately discharged from the house.
This program is open to clients who have recently completed a treatment program and are sober. Clients also have to be active members of the 12-step community, and have a sponsor. There is a list of assigned chores that clients must complete in a timely fashion. Attendance at the weekly house meeting is mandatory and there is a curfew every night.
Within a couple week of moving into the house clients have to either get a job or volunteer for 32 hours per week. There are some restrictions on how late clients can work as well.
Bisous Haven not only helps humans but is also dedicated to helping animals. There is a rescued house dog that clients take turns walking and caring for during their stay.
Bisous Haven is not only a safe place for women in the early stages of recovery to live, it is also an uplifting environment that encourages clients to take healthy strides in their lives. There is definitely a structure and expectations for the clients, which ultimately helps them grow and flourish. This is a great first step women who have struggled in the past with addiction.
