A Comprehensive Continuum of Care for Women in Recovery

We offer gender-specific services for women recovering from alcohol and drug dependency. Our residential, interim housing, outpatient, intensive outpatient programs and continuing care services allow clients to come in at any stage of the recovery process and receive the appropriate treatment for their unique situation. This holistic approach to women in recovery is what makes The Haven unique and unlike any other substance use treatment facility in our community.

When you enter The Haven, you’ll be immediately welcomed, engaged and put at ease. We provide a confidential and inclusive environment, with a professionally trained staff that understands the specific needs of women from different backgrounds and cultures, and the challenges they face on the road to recovery.

Our treatment programs are affordable and may be covered by insurance. Review Payment Options

Our outpatient and residential facilities are centrally located in Tucson and easily accessible by bus with discreet parking.


What insurance does The Haven accept?

We accept some private insurance plans and state-funded Medicaid/AHCCS insurance plans with substance use treatment coverage and will bill your insurance provider directly. If you are covered for behavioral health services under Medicaid/AHCCCS through Cenpatico, you may contact your assigned Intake Care Coordination Agency (ICCA) Recovery Coach for assistance in accessing The Haven services. If you are without insurance, The Haven will work with you to arrange a flexible payment plan that allows you to focus on your treatment. Review Payment Options.

How long is the treatment program?

Treatment is individualized and varies from 30 days or longer. The Haven aspires to help clients address their substance use issues in the least restrictive environment. As soon as residential clients are ready, they transition to either The Haven Outpatient Program (OP) or Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP).

What programs are involved with treatment?

The Haven utilizes Best Practice modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Relapse Prevention and Seeking Safety.

Does The Haven accept children into residential treatment with their mother?

Yes, we involve the family in our client’s recovery process and encourage women to bring their children when clinically appropriate.

Is there a waiting list for treatment services?


What are the intake requirements?

To learn more about our Intake process, please contact our Intake Coordinator at 520-623-4590.

Why are your treatment services for women only?

Women recovering from alcohol and drug dependence often feel traumatized by the men in their lives, marginalized by the community and defeated by their addiction. Our gender-specific services allow them to focus on their recovery in a safe, comfortable, non-judgmental environment, where they can begin the healing process surrounded by women with similar stories and circumstances.


Our substance use outpatient and intensive outpatient services allow you to receive treatment while continuing to live in your own home and meet your personal commitments. Whether it’s a 12-week Intensive Outpatient Program or simply attending a weekly group or counseling services, our programs are individualized to meet your specific needs.

Outpatient Services Include:

  • Individual and group counseling by a master’s level therapist
  • Meeting with recovery coaches who have personal lived experience with substance use
  • Family support and educational groups
  • Assistance with court needs and the Department of Child Safety
  • Assistance obtaining a sponsor
  • Affordable treatment – Some outpatient services are fully paid by insurance companies. We also offer payment plans, credit card options and assistance with obtaining funding Learn More About Payment Options <links to Payment Options page>
  • Ideal location – we are centrally located, on the bus routes, and offer discreet off-street parking
  • Clinically proven treatment programs that create structure and expectations, reinforce positive change, promote independence and self-help and teach coping and relapse prevention skills

The Haven Outpatient Program incorporates culturally responsive, evidenced-based treatment methods with a holistic approach to the individualized treatment needs of each client.

Matrix Model

We utilize the Matrix Model, an intensive abstinence-based outpatient treatment approach for substance abuse and dependence. Within this model, clients receive direction and support from a master’s level therapist, become familiar with self-help programs and participate in relapse prevention groups, trauma-based cognitive-behavioral individual and group therapy, substance use education groups, and social-support groups.

Motivational Interviewing (MI)

Most individuals have conflicting feelings about their substance use. They realize that their behavior is destructive and unhealthy, yet they are unable to stop using substances.

At The Haven, we utilize Motivational Interviewing to help clients examine and resolve their ambivalence towards their substance use and reach a place where they are ready to build a plan for positive change.

Peer Supports and Recovery Coaches

Admitting your substance use issues to others can be embarrassing, stigmatizing and isolating. Women battling substance use dependency often feel defeated, hopeless and that no one understands what they are really going through. That’s why peer supports and recovery coaches are so integral to a women’s recovery process. At The Haven we give our clients the opportunity to forge relationships with other women who have “walked in their shoes” and are living proof that a substance-free life is possible.


These are just a few of the many stories women have shared about their life-changing experiences in our Intensive Outpatient Program.

I could not have done this on my own

“I didn’t feel ready to enter the world when I graduated from residential. I was scared and insecure in my recovery. In the Haven Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) I am able to take baby steps into the world while continuing to focus on my recovery. I have a support network here that has helped me stay clean and sober for over 6 months. I am certain that I could not have done this on my own.”

– Charlene

I am truly enjoying a sober life

“Being in the IOP has given me a new found freedom in recovery. It has slowly progressed into independence but I also live by rules and consequences too. I am allowing myself to make positive decisions in my life that I have never ever been able to do, having come out of a 21-year abusive and controlling relationship. So now that treatment has taught me to love myself and be selfish, I am truly enjoying a sober life.“

– Danette

It gave me a life I am proud of

“Without The Haven IOP, I would have been homeless for a significant amount of time around drug addicts and very well could have relapsed. Being kept in a safe environment has allowed me to put everything together and still be safe and strong. Thank you IOP for giving me a life I can be proud of! The coping skills I learned allow me to deal with everyday problems that used to bring me down. I feel like there is nothing I can’t do.“

– Jainie

I feel like I have a purpose

“After two months in residential, I was relieved to move on to IOP as I wasn’t ready emotionally and certainly not logistically to be out on my own. Attending morning classes feels like I have a job to do, a place to be, a purpose. I take comfort in seeing fellow clients almost everyday and I know I can tell them anything. The Haven has become my home and given me a gift I can never repay. Thank you. I would never have been able to get sober and move forward without the tremendous support I received here.”

– Rebecca

Good things do happen to those who fight for it

“Being in the IOP has taught me accountability, responsibility, coping skills and many other things. But mainly it has taught me a new better way of living clean. It’s helped me to find myself and be a better person and gave me a chance to be a mother. It’s given me so many helpful tools. It helped me transition into the world and make a support team. It taught me to put my ego aside and reach out. It also showed me how good things do happen to those who deserve and fight for it.”

– Kim

I’m so grateful to be here

“To be honest, I don’t think I’d be in my recovery if I hadn’t come to The Haven IOP. I have 6 months clean and I have The Haven and IOP to thank for that. The everyday lessons they provide are needed for me to stay in my recovery, practice new coping skills and continue to learn and grow. I’m so grateful to be here.”

– LuAnn

Here, women are encouraged to bring their children into treatment with them so that the mother/child bond can be strengthened and the mother can learn effective parenting skills and put them into practice with her children.

  • Alcohol and drug dependence programs tailored specifically to meet women’s needs

Based on the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA) Best Practice Models of treatment, our professional staff offers a behavioral trauma-based model of residential treatment services for women that includes the following:

Cognitive Behavioral Coping Skills Therapy

Alcohol and substance use behaviors are usually related to other major problems in a person’s life. Cognitive Behavioral Coping Skills Therapy helps clients address the broader spectrum of underlying problems that precipitate substance use, including interpersonal difficulties or intrapersonal discomfort such as anger or depression. Emphasis is placed on helping clients overcome skill deficits and helping them increase their ability to cope with high-risk situations that commonly trigger relapse.

Seeking Safety

Seeking Safety is an integrated treatment designed to work on both Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and substance abuse simultaneously with the goal of helping clients attain safety in their relationships, thinking, behavior and emotions.

Motivational Interviewing

Most individuals have conflicting feelings about their substance use. They realize that their behavoir is destructive and unhealthy, yet they cannot stop using substances. At The Haven, we utilize Motivational Interviewing to help clients examine and resolve their ambivalence towards their substance use and reach a place where they are ready to build a plan for positive change.

Relapse Prevention

Relapse Prevention is an important component in the treatment of alcohol and substance use dependence. The goal of Relapse Prevention is to identify and prevent high-risk situations by teaching indivudals how to recognize and anticipate those risks and provide them with the copying skills necessary to help them avoid a relapse.

Treatment within a culturally supportive community


Our award-winning Native Ways program offers culturally supportive treatment options for Native American women with substance use disorders. In this program, individualized, residential and outpatient services integrate traditional healing practices with evidenced-based, gender-specific treatment models.

Therapy is designed to meet the unique needs of Native women and draws on their cultural strength to promote healing and recovery. Treatment options reflect the diverse cultural expressions of tribal nations and the shared concepts of respect, nature, the Four Directions, the Sacred Hoop, wellness, and balance.

The Haven has set aside accommodations specifically for Native Women who choose to experience treatment within a culturally supportive community. In consultation with the clinical team, children may reside with their mothers and are welcomed to The Haven.

We employ a full-time Native American, licensed counselor who facilitates the following therapeutic activities, which are available to both native and non-native clients.

  • Medicine Wheel
  • Smudging
  • Talking Circles
  • Sweat Lodge
  • Pipe Ceremonies
  • Native music and art
  • Storytelling
  • White Bison 12-step meetings (TIC)


These are just a few of the many stories women have shared about their life-changing experiences in our residential substance use treatment program.

I know how to live a sober life

“Thanks to The Haven, I became a strong, independent woman. I know how to live a sober life. They helped me get back on my feet, to believe in myself. I know now that I can care for my children by myself if I have to. People here help me with my kids if I have questions. I know now that I can pay my bills. I see a whole new life in front of me.”


I found hope at The Haven

“The biggest thing I got from The Haven was hope: hope that life could be better. I am still friends with some of those residents from The Haven. We went through a lot together. After graduating from The Haven, three of us went to Aftercare for so long that they graduated us from Aftercare. So then we started doing weekly groups at my house. We did that for years.”


I have so much to be grateful for

“After finishing treatment at The Haven, I went to Phoenix to ask to get my nursing license back. They said I could be reinstated, but I first had to do ten things. (They wanted me to do things like attend AA meetings, give the Board monthly reports from others, and tell any new boss about my former drug use.) I started working again and volunteered at The Haven helping others. I have so much to be grateful for: trips to Europe, having fun with my dogs, meaningful relationships. The Haven helped me to find the real me.”


I focused on myself and got honest

“I had been in treatment so much before The Haven, but I was very defiant. I had done little that they asked and then relapsed. Defiance is still strong in me. At The Haven I felt really safe. I was here for eight months and did not want to leave. I started taking direction from my sponsor. She has been my sponsor for nine years now. I focused on myself and got honest. I have been working steadily since leaving The Haven.”

– Ivy

I have been clean for over two years

“If it wasn’t for The Haven, I would not be the person I am today. It is a hard program and even harder when you don’t want it. But give it a chance; they know what they are doing there. Being clean is the best feeling and yes, drugs can make you feel that way too. But being clean and living life with the rest of the world is that much better. It is very hard work to earn the trust and respect of people you have let down, but it is rewarding when you finally get it back.”
