Where Her Recovery Lives


Our Dream Begins Amethyst is the dream that began over 25 years ago with nine recovering women in the quest for their own recovery from addictions and abuse. These women envisioned a treatment center that would provide comprehensive care to women and women with children. They wanted to a place that was centered on the needs of women, providing them with services that were long-term and housing that was safe and drug free. With no more than one donated house, three clients and one volunteer, these nine founding mothers turned their dream into reality.

Women-centered

Addiction conflicts with society’s view of femininity causing women to feel guilt, shame, despair and fear. Amethyst’s gender-specific, long-term, evidence-based care provides a holistic approach to healing and recovery.

Trauma-sensitive

History of trauma drastically increases the likelihood that a woman will abuse alcohol or other drugs. Understanding that a trauma survivor develops a “trauma lens” through which she views the world, Amethyst provides comprehensive “trauma informed” services to women and their children.

Family-focused

The disease of addiction effects every person in contact with the addict. Amethyst’s family team is devoted to providing therapeutic programs tailored for families and children.
