The Journey Home believes that Alcoholism is a primary disease that results in the loss of the ability to manage one’s own life. Alcoholism and related chemical dependencies are primary, chronic, and fatal diseases which render it’s victims helpless. As the disease progresses there is further deterioration, both emotional and physical. Defensive lifestyles emerge to meet the negative behavior caused from this disease. Chemically dependent women are often victimized and many come from abusive backgrounds. This program is based upon a foundation which respects, and offers support to the women who are struggling with addiction. Because addiction is a disease this program believes it can be treated successfully with a caring and supportive staff. We believe that excessive use of any drug reduces the overall quality of human life and endangers physical health, mental health, and life expectancy. We believe that it is important and necessary to intervene with care against the physical, psychological, social, vocational, and spiritual crises exhibited by the chemically dependent client. We believe the client should receive quality services and a safe environment in order to recover from all dependencies.
