GraceWay Recovery Residence is a non-profit recovery community for women dedicated to providing women with the environment and tools necessary to achieve and maintain long-term sobriety. GraceWay utilizes the twelve step methodology to provide holistic and abstinence-based recovery support services.

Facility Highlights

  • Long-term residential and sober living options
  • Family workshops
  • Daily peer groups and 12-step groups

Specialization

  • Family Program
    Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
  • Holistic Therapy
    Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.

Graceway has given me my life back.I am so very grateful for this place and all the tools it gave me while I was a resident there.I battled addiction and an eating disorder for 20 years and had been to 4 other rehabs and nothing seemed to work for me.I had truly given up on life and was completely broken.Graceway was the only place that got through to me and got to the core of the real issues and helped me to see that my addiction was just a symptom of deeper problems.Today,I am happy and at peace for the first time in my life.I know my worth and live each day with excitement and gratitude..All of relationships with my daughter,family,friends and husband have been restored and are better than they've ever been.None of this would have been possible without compassionate staff.Thank you Graceway for my life today and for showing me and teaching me how live and be the woman I was intended to be all along.I love you all! GRATEFUL

    When I first walked through the front gates of GraceWay, I was broken, numb and full of shame. I was desperate to hold on to my false sense of power and control over my alcoholism. Pride was my illusionary protector and life line, yet in truth, pride was the enemy in hiding, slowing killing me in the process. As I walked through the front door of GraceWay, I took a deep breath, looked up, and was greeted with big Southern hugs from the GraceWay team. It was then and there that I intrinsically knew that I would be “OK”. I was right where I needed to be. Travelling all the way from Canada, I was far away from home. GraceWay embraced me into their family and provided me with a sense of community. After having already completed three treatment programs, I thought I knew the “ropes”. I knew what the counsellors would want to hear, how I was supposed to act, how to stay below the “radar” and not have to be truthful with myself or others. I was deluding myself. The GraceWay team immediately saw through my façade and “carefronted” me with truth; yet, loved and accepted me anyways, despite not being able to accept and love myself. GraceWay is based on transition and transformation. It is a very demanding but powerful inpatient recovery home that empowered me to own my addiction and journey of recovery. It required me to self-reflect and dig below the surface (the inside me versus how I present myself to the outside world) and fully commit to the holistic twelve step model. Despite the amazing programming, activities and opportunities that GraceWay provided, the program allowed me to learn how to make, reach and maintain my goals, while living life on life’s terms. GraceWay not only provided me with a sense of purpose, self worth and self esteem, the team encouraged me to utilize my strengths to move forward, maintain accountability and challenged me to move towards self reliance and social responsibility. GraceWay will always hold a special place in my heart and in my spiritual growth. It was through GraceWay that I learned that it was “OK” to be “ME “, “Myself” and “I”. What I thought were my ugly imperfections, were the very things that made me beautiful. The GraceWay team lead by example and freely gave of themselves – their stories and personal lived experiences through addiction and recovery. Their strength and courage gave and gives me hope today. After five months in the main treatment house, I was able to transition over to “The Way" – semi-independent apartment living - located on the GraceWay property. After three months living at “The Way”, I returned home to Canada. Although, I still have my personal trials and tribulations, alcoholism is no longer the keeper of my thoughts. I am no longer a “puppet” and my alcoholism my “puppeteer”. Today, I no longer “live to drink” nor “drink to live”. Instead I walk through this world with my head held high, with the grace of a woman, rather than the grief of a child. Everyday brings a new beginning and a new end. When I make a non-healthy choice, I can always start fresh and move forward in my recovery. GraceWay saved my life in so many ways. For that I am forever grateful and blessed. I feel privileged to call GraceWay and the long-term friendships that I made while at GraceWay - FAMILY. I recommend GraceWay to any woman who is struggling and serious about healing her mind, body and spirit. Forever and a day, Tanya

      GraceWay is a God-send! This placed truly saved my life. If real recovery is what you're looking for, GraceWay is it. It's 12-step and spiritually-based, and gives you a safe haven for the start yo your journey. After living in the house for 3 months, I transitioned to the Way apartments next door, which offer continued growth while also learning self-sufficiency and responsibility. In my opinion, there's no other well-rounded and fulfilling residence like GraceWay!

        Graceway Recovery Residence is a difficult, demanding and incredibly powerful place that empowers women to own their own journey of recovery. It is based in tough-love, truth, and self-reflection that requires it's residents to dig in and fully commit to the twelve steps model. Graceway is rock solid in its careful approach to treating women and it's program expects women to transition into independent, autonomous living. Once a resident progresses toward living a more productive life, Graceway can nominate a candidate for the long-term, transitional care of "The Way" - apartment living still on the campus. This option has helped our daughter immensely, as she gains more freedom and life skills, while still under the watchful eye of staff and counselors. We highly recommend Graceway Recovery Residence, as it has been a life saver for our child. We pray she continues to thrive under its care....

          My daughter fought addiction for more than 20 years. She has been in more rehab facilities than I can count. As a mother I prayed continuously for God to keep her safe and to intervene. Graceway has been an answer to our prayers. Graceway is like no other treatment center! When I dropped her out I was informed that this is the boot camp of all treatment centers and if she makes it through this program she will have a real chance. She has embraced the program which is truly an addicts boot camp! And for once in a long time I see true hope. She is now in her 7th month at Graceway. Without my faith in God for guiding us to Graceway I honestly think my daughter would not be living today. Thank you for your program!
