Willow Grove is a supportive transitional residence for women who are in the early stages of recovery from addiction. Established in 2004, Willow Grove offers family-style, substance-free housing for residents who work or volunteer and pay modest rent for room and board. The goal of the Willow Grove program is for residents to strengthen the foundation of their recovery and move toward independent, productive lives.
"Willow Grove is a safe place to live where we're all trying to do the same thing every day. We're taking our lives back, and we're doing it together." -Gail
Each applicant to Willow Grove is assessed to determine if she is an appropriate candidate for admission at the time she applies. Once accepted potential residents are assigned a move-in date or waitlisted if a bed is not readily available. Upon moving in each resident is assigned a case manager who will assist her in developing and executing a care plan which typically includes:
- Case management
- Twelve-Step programs
- Counseling and psychiatric services
- Vocational planning
- Domestic violence support
- Medical, dental and legal services
- Educational services
- Parenting and other skills
- Aftercare planning
A minimum of 30 days of sobriety is required for admission to Willow Grove, although we occasionally accept women earlier in their recovery if they have completed an inpatient treatment program and are awaiting discharge, in order to preserve continuity of support. The average length of stay at Willow Grove is 3-6 months, however when extra support is required we will extend a stay if the resident is actively engaged in all of her recovery plan goals.
Willow Grove is partially funded with support from the State of Vermont, the Upper Valley Division of Granite United Way, the Byrne Foundation, the Hope Foundation, and a variety of other foundations and individual donors.
