Mission Statement

Home of New Vision is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization that provides a structured, safe environment for women committed to ongoing recovery from chemical dependency. Our goal is to assist the client in building self-esteem and realizing her full potential becoming a productive, responsible, self-sufficient member of society.We are accomplishing this mission by providing transitional housing and outpatient treatment for women committed to recovery from chemical dependency.

Description

Established in 1997, Home of New Vision is a non-profit (501(c)(3)) organization that provides transitional housing (3/4 houses) and outpatient services for women committed to ongoing recovery from chemical dependency in Washtenaw County, Michigan. Our transitional homes and our outpatient services are both open to any woman with no geographical boundaries. Recently we have added two new programs solely for residents of Washtenaw or Livingston Counties. One is a dual diagnosis program that serves people who have both a mental health and substance abuse diagnosis and do not have insurance or enough income to pay for services and medication. The second program is Taking It To The Streets, which is our new outreach program for people with Medicaid who need some assistance in getting help for substance abuse issues. The staff at Home of New Vision utilizes the relational and empowerment models. These models acknowledge that connections are fundamental to the growth, recovery and healing of women. We encourage the development of mutually supportive and empathetic bonds with others. We believe this assists in developing a healthier definition of self, autonomy and competency. We recognize that chemically dependent women are not only faced with the difficulties of recovering from addiction, but that they must contend with systemic biases and oppression related to gender, ethnicity, economic status, sexual orientation, marital and parental status. Research on women's development and recovery from chemical dependency has clearly indicated that approaches that recognize these social contexts increase the individual woman's confidence thereby encouraging healthy self-sufficiency.
