The Healing Place Provides a pathway to recovery for men struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. Our long-term, nationally recognized program is a place where hope is found and change happens. Our goal is to reach the most vulnerable members of our community, to provide a pathway to recovery, and to restore their dignity and place in society.
We make it easy for people to get the help that they need. Clients can enter our overnight shelter and Sobering Up Center while still intoxicated. This means they will not freeze to death in the winter or be on the streets drunk or high. Additionally, our Sobering Up Center lightens the load on emergency rooms and reduces everyone’s medical costs by decreasing the number of indigent patients.
We are the only long-term recovery program in Virginia which provides services regardless of a client’s financial situation. This means people with major addiction problems and no resources can get the help that they need instead of being on the street or incarcerated.
We provide a safe recovering environment as our men transition back to full-time employment and learn to live independently and successfully. This means instead of active addicts who are a tax burden, recovering addicts can become tax-paying citizens.
