The Refuge is the leading treatment program for men and women suffering with PTSD, trauma and addiction. Since its inception, The Refuge has built an international reputation for long-term trauma recovery by providing individualized treatment at each of its levels of care and utilizing holistic and experiential therapies. Every one of our compassionate staff are trained in trauma awareness and specialize in one of the many unique therapies we offer. We Treat The Person, Not the Symptoms The core of our philosophy lies in understanding that there are many types of events that can cause serious trauma, many of which are buried under more apparent issues such as depression, anxiety, self-harm, or substance abuse. Our treatment program works to unravel the trauma and begin the recovery process. We meet you where you are. Everyone comes to The Refuge at a different point in their lives. Our goal is to promote true healing at a pace unique to each person. It is individualized person-centered treatment provided by a caring and loving staff. Residential treatment is a perfect setting. Understanding that building a true base for recovery takes time, our residential campus – nestled on a beautiful 95 acres of grounds – gives our residents that time. Time to explore and rediscover themselves, time to build a real foundation of skills that support our alumnae long after they graduate from The Refuge. Mind. Body. Spirit. The Refuge is a truly holistic and experiential program. We know that you can’t heal one aspect of self without healing the others. Restoring an individual’s spirit is the driving force behind restoring their authentic self.
