The Haven is a Modified Therapeutic Community (MTC) which provides substance abuse treatment for women, mothers and their infants. Licensed by the Division of Behavioral Health, the program offers intensive residential treatment for clients with addictions. Clients are referred from the criminal justice system, child welfare agencies, relatives, and self-referrals.
Founded in 1992, The Haven was the first program in Colorado to accept infants into residence while their mothers received substance abuse treatment – keeping children out of the foster care system.
Haven clients typically stay nine to 12 months in residential treatment, followed by an additional 12 months of outpatient MTC treatment services. Long-term outcomes are very positive. In fact, 90.1 percent of clients who enter The Haven remain drug-, alcohol-, and crime-free two years after completion.
