Graduates of Canaan House transitions are fresh and resilient like
the flowers in the garden. They grow and blossom whether in the "sun or
in the shade" of life’s daily experiences.
Canaan House Believes
Recovery goes beyond abstinence from drugs and alcohol. It involves
the conscious and intentional split from people, places, things and
behaviors that were present during active use.
Few people can accomplish this change alone. Canaan House provides
women the support and insights of a group of residents who are dedicated
to their own recovery.
Recovery must be a total focus. We expect our residents will expend
at least as much energy on achieving recovery as they did obtaining
their drug of choice. In return we pledge to support them in this
exciting journey to a life of freedom.
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created
equal, that all are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable
Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of
US Declaration of Independence.
Canaan House Provides
A highly structured residential program for women who
possess a sincere desire to reconstruct their lives.
We help our residents build the self
determination, respect for self and others, and hope for the future.
