Treatment and Staff
Haven House runs group therapy throughout the day between the hours of 8 am and 4 pm. Clients attend at a frequency determined by their individualized treatment plans and meet with their therapist for individual therapy once a week. Two on-site AA/NA meetings are available daily at 6 pm and again at 7 pm, each lasting around 60 to 90 minutes.
Graduation ceremonies for clients who complete the Haven House program take place at 4 pm followed by dinner at 5 pm. After 12-step meetings, clients may enjoy some leisure time. Haven House is more laid back on weekends; only two group sessions run during the day and one AA/NA meeting at night.

An Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is available for clients to step down to following primary treatment.
