Unique to Alice's is a facility ready and able to welcome single mothers working on their sobriety who are seeking to reunite with their children under the age of six. One of only a handful of such facilities in the State of Indiana, Alice's will be the only place of its kind serving women in Porter County. Structure and supervision are the keys to successful transition from a life of addiction to a life of sobriety. Alice's will provide twenty-four hour supervision, in-house counseling, shared family meals, and the opportunity to attend both open- and closed-meetings of Alcohol and Narcotics Anonymous (AA and NA). When women leave rehabilitation and treatment, too often they have nowhere to go except back into the situations that encouraged their addiction in the first place. They are desperate for a place where there's someone there helping them over the rough spots - day or night. Alice's can be that place for them. Alice's provides residence with tools to enhance their recovery program with AA and NA meetings, family programs, 12 step education and counseling. Alice's offers a safe house free from drugs and alcohol, 24-hour supervision and screened guests.
To provide a solution for women hopelessly trapped in chemical dependency. Alice's engages in educational, charitable, and social welfare activities connected with the habilitation and rehabilitation of women suffering from chemical dependency and related disorders. The core of this program is a 24 hour, staffed, 12-step recovery program for women who wish to recover from alcoholism and drug addictions, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Alice's was imagined into being in 2000 by a group of individuals who had seen among their own family, neighbors, and friends the destructive power that drug and alcohol abuse can have over the lives of women. Experiencing the frustration of finding nowhere to turn for a solution to the problem of post-treatment care, they chose to become a part of the solution for women trapped in chemical dependency.
