We embody a community spirit and create an environment where staff and clients all work together toward growth and personal empowerment. Our program welcomes adult women over the age of 18 years old in an intimate, home-feel setting.

While creating our Whole Being Approach, we recognize that there are countless women who have gone through multiple programs and have relapsed. We strive to end the cycle of addiction by creating a different approach that goes beyond the standard approaches to drug and alcohol treatment to focus on the deeper underlying blocks to health and healing. Our approach has supported many clients who have had history of multiple relapses and treatment attempts. Our team and program offers on the latest research on all modalities to support women struggling with substance abuse, co-occurring disorders, trauma, grief and loss, self-harm, and suicidality.

Our team consistently works together to assist in the growth and healing process for each individual woman in our program.

Avery Lane Dream Team


Avery Lane’s treatment and recovery philosophy recognizes that addiction is a primary, chronic, progressive, and fatal disease that affects the body, mind, and social and spiritual aspects of a person’s life—as well as the lives of their families and others whom they love. Our model’s emphasis is on full integration of our participants into long-term sobriety and recovery.

Our approach involves the integration of philosophies, research, and clinical practices from the medical, psychiatric, psychological, human potential, social, familial, and self-help communities. The result of our treatment is the creation of a bio-psycho-social-spiritual foundation integral to a life of sobriety.

Through education, psychotherapy, integrative health, and physical healing, our female participants—with the support of their recovery community—will be able to gain integrative insight into the origins of their disease and its associated features. In a safe and comfortable environment, they will identify associated effective or emotional components and the impact they have on their addictive behaviors and on the identity of their addicted selves. In turn, our treatments and reintegration into life and recovery emphasize transformation from the “addicted identity” to the “recovery identity,” primed with tools for a successful and sustained sobriety.
