When you enter POWER House, you will find a safe and healing place for women who are beginning, or reinventing, their recovery. You can stay for up to six months while you work on achieving goals you set with support from caring staff who are there to help you build a solid foundation for your recovery.
A typical day at POWER House begins at 6 a.m. After breakfast, your day will consist of a variety of activities including: daily exercise, group and individual therapy, meditation, expressive arts therapy, life skills classes, 12-Step and other self-help meetings, and time to socialize and have meals with other residents. When your day ends, you will enjoy a good night’s sleep in your private, beautifully furnished bedroom.
Your loved ones play an important role in your recovery. When you meet with your therapist, you will learn more about scheduling visits.
Our Medical Director, a psychiatrist, is available for consultation and medication management. Our Resource Coordinator will help you identify education, employment, and housing opportunities and help with other needs. The Squirrel Hill Health Center partners for primary care and Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) if desired.
POWER House consists of 26 private bedrooms, shared common areas including a playroom for visiting children, and healing gardens on the grounds. It is staffed 24 hours a day.
