Solace Transitional Second Stage Home for Women in Abbotsford is a supportive and safe communal living environment for women who are recovering from their addictions.
Residents of this second stage transitional house are provided with a safe, supportive environment that is clean and sober from all substances. Our residents are encouraged to learn new life skills, including but not limited to: coping strategies, boundary setting, and communication styles. They will have the opportunity to connect with self and others in a positive way.
While residing with us, they can connect with community resources and family while working towards independence as their end goal.
Women residing at Solace House will need to be abstinent from any form of narcotic drug or alcohol for a minimum of 30 days prior to being accepted as a resident and can live there for a maximum of 6 months. Residents will be expected to participate in their personal recovery program, in house programming, working towards their goals and follow in house guidelines and expectations. Solace House uses a holistic approach that instills responsibility, personal integrity and accountability.
Our in-house program consists of various group activities aimed at engaging in real-life situations and learning how to have strong, supportive and positive relationships within the house. Our philosophy incorporates the ‘Disease Model’. We are involved with community organizations such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous and Co-Dependant Anonymous. Other community resources include services that specialize in mental health, probation, celebrating recovery and employment programming.
Solace House staff and volunteers have various professional and personal backgrounds that compliment each other and allow for all residents to feel supported. We use a client-centered approach where each woman is recognized as an individual and deserving of respect and dignity. Past residents are encouraged and welcomed to visit and connect with the current residents provided they remain alcohol and drug free and do not pose a risk to others.
