Transitional Sober Living Designed Exclusively For Women

Eden Hill Recovery Retreat is the premier Transitional Sober Living home for Adult Women recovering from Substance Use and
Co-Occuring disorders

Transitional Living at Eden Hill

Eden Hill's Transitional Living program serves as a bridge between Inpatient Substance Use Recovery Treatment and the abrupt return home. With a typical length of stay between four and six months, our residents return home with more confidence and an increased likelihood to build long-term recovery. 
During a woman's time at Eden Hill we are committed to helping translate skills learned in initial inpatient treatment into real life experience.

Our gender-responsive treatment includes 24/7 care from dedicated professionals, daily groups, individual therapy and a Phase system establishing structured independence for residents. Our robust clinical program, individual attention we give each woman, and comfortable, home-like setting distinguish Eden Hill's Transitional Living from a typical sober house or recovery house for women.

Why Choose Transitional Sober Living?

Living a substance free life often involves many changes in a woman's daily routine. Going directly home or to a sober house with minimal oversight after highly regulated alcohol or drug rehabilitation centers can leave women feeling without support. Feeling overwhelmed, the result is often relapse, or emotional distress of the individual and her loves ones.

Transitional Living offers a safe, supportive and structured environment for residents to begin addressing these challenges. Within the framework of an extended stay, we are able to work with each resident and her family to develop treatment, relapse prevention and aftercare plans that address her individual challenges, life circumstances and goals.

Upon discharge from Eden Hill each resident has started her transition home. Having worked with our clinical team to identify and process the difficult relationships and situations that exist at home, she leaves best equipped to meet life on life's terms and thrive in her recovery.

In our structured environment we combine clinical-best practices, health & wellness programs, personal accountability and a whole lot of support from staff and fellow residents.

As the personalized plans and regular schedule are integrated into each woman's life at Eden Hill, they serve as a blueprint for leading healthy, fulfilling, sober lives at home.

Who We Are...


A New Beginning

The road to one's best self passes through Eden Hill

"My inner self-worth came when I went to Eden Hill. I was given a safe, loving, understanding environment. Daily therapy, group meetings, outside AA/NA meetings and daily interactions with different ladies of similar issues gave me hope that I would be able to continue this journey One Day at a Time!"
