Taking That First Step

By: Courtney Weisshaupt, Detox Manager

Detox is the first step a person takes when coming to The Healing Place. When someone wants to access detox services at the Men’s Campus or the Women’s Campus, all they have to do is walk through the front door. When a potential client comes into detox, they are greeted by a staff member who […]

A Safe Place to Stay

The Healing Place is the house that built me. Having the opportunity to be a staff member in the same house where I was able to get sober has truly become one of the greatest accomplishments of my life. I am a monitor in the detox and overnight units at the women’s campus. I spend […]

Addiction and Resilience in a Global Pandemic

By: Nick Wilson, Men's Detox Monitor

January 8, 2021. This day felt like the cusp of another turning point in my life. I was administered the COVID-19 vaccine after almost a year of complete chaos, social unrest, and uncertainty.

The year 2020 was a year filled with successes and challenges. We will remember how we all had to change the way we live, play, and work.

Addiction and the COVID-19 Pandemic

By: Shannon Gray, Program Manager

“Trust the process” is the most commonly used phrase at The Healing Place. The phrase is powerful and not always easy to do. If done daily, one will learn how to face the greatest enemy he or she will ever face, themselves. When the first confirmed case of COVID-19 became known on January 20th, little […]

Peer Mentors teach classes, monitor program progress, coordinate job assignments, and work one-on-one with individuals […]

We are a people who normally would not mix.  But there exists among us a fellowship, a friendliness, and an understanding which is indescribably wonderful.          […]
