About the Halfway Home

Why we do it

Homelessness — is an additional factor that contributes to development of women’s addiction. Homeless women can often start from alcohol consumption, trying to cover up a severe stress, ease pain, forget misery or warm up. Addiction — is a chronical disease, but you keep living with it, avoiding alcohol abuse. Women less often than men are asking for help, often they try to hide their addictions and cope with them alone. Women with addictions more often try to hide their problems in order to deal with them alone. It’s crucial that every woman with difficulties would never stay alone, but instead could come and receive the help she needs, where she would feel safe.

How it works

In a half way House live women who have acknowledged their addiction and are ready to work at their sobriety for the next 6 months. Rehabililtation in a half road House is based on the 12 steps programm and includes group and individual sessions with the chemical addictions specialists and psychologists.

Daily meetings are conducted by equal consultants — people with additctions who are in remission for at least 2 years. Half way house accepts women who have at least one month of confirmed sobriety. Our first clients came into the shelter that has 8 places in october 2023. Team of the half way house consists of women alone, our clients quite often do not feel themselves safe with men, so it’s more convenient for them to work with women. Rehabilitation in the half way road House is based on the AAA’s principals and includes group and individual sessions with additction consultants and psychologists.
