Welcome to Mare’s House

Sober Living for Women in Recovery

Mare’s House is a sober living home for women in recovery from substance use, eating disorders, trauma, and/or other co-occurring disorders. Our home provides a safe space and customized treatment that is informed by an understanding of the particular challenges women face. Residents have optional access to a team of mentors, doctors, and counselors. They live and grow with peers who are facing similar issues, and as they progress in recovery, they build autonomy, self-confidence, and self-reliance through learning how to manage triggers and developing healthy coping strategies for controlling anxiety, depression, and stress.


It’s completely normal to be apprehensive about taking the next step after an in-patient program. We understand, because many on the Mare’s House team have walked the same path. We operate Mare’s House with the mission of providing the safe, stable, caring environment that we know is so important to lasting recovery. Our residents benefit from recovery options that are clinically sophisticated and designed to provide the life skills support needed to successfully transition to independent sober living.

Generally, candidates have completed primary treatment, attended therapeutic boarding school, or participated in other interventions prior to enrolling at Mare’s House. Our residents gain personal empowerment, learn how to prevent relapse and work on integrating coping skills into everyday life. With a focus on sobriety through self-care and esteem building, Mare’s House helps women develop the independent living skills necessary for a successful transition into a healthier lifestyle.

Building a Strong Foundation

Mentorship, Relationships and Self-Care

Our philosophy is based on the belief that success in recovery requires more than just abstinence. It requires confidence, independence, and a sense of purpose. Because of this, we provide a path to wellness and fulfillment that is based on options. We encourage our residents to build a life that includes a healthy balance of recreation, nutrition, validation, meaningful relationships, clinical support, and self-reliance. We provide the safe space and professional mentorship necessary to build a life of meaning – a life worth protecting.
