Providing A Holistic Approach To Recovery

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering,
known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths.”
– Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Mahala’s Hope serves women who have already received primary treatment for substance abuse but still need assistance before rejoining their communities. Our transitional recovery residence boasts a holistic, nature-based approach as well as an equine component through which the women learn about themselves by working with horses. We also offer equine workshops to other specific groups and provide out-patient therapy.

I discovered my ability to come up with creative ideas and solutions to problems. With my mind more relaxed, I could think more clearly.

I own my decisions—whether to change and grow or stay the same. It is nobody else’s fault or blame if I am not happy with my life.
