The House of Sophrosyne was founded in 1978 as a charitable organization. Committed to offering supportive services to women in an all-female holistic environment, we help women initiate and sustain the process of recovery from substance misuse and chemical dependency. The mission was, and still is today, to offer an evidence-based philosophy of empowerment through a harm reduction approach in treating women for substance misuse. We provide a continuum of programs and services for women and their families as well as to all members of the community who are affected by their addictions, primarily through a 35-day residential treatment program for women.
