Shelter Housing Q & A

Why do I need shelter housing?

The team at Behavioral Health Clinic offers the intensive care you need to detoxify and recover from your addiction. They provide therapy, teach coping skills, and help you understand what drives your addiction so you can move forward to achieve a productive life. But your long-term wellness depends on two life-sustaining essentials: food and shelter. Without these basic needs, you can’t focus on recovering, and it’s hard to resist the addictions you’ve worked so hard to overcome. Behavioral Health Clinic offers shelter housing to give you a safe and supportive environment. You have the chance to live with others who understand what you are going through. When you live in the shelter house, you can continue to regain your wellness while being free from judgment.
