Vesta Recovery Program for Women Inc. is a not for profit Residential Supportive Treatment Level I service provider of services for women who are struggling to recover from the impacts of substance use or abuse.  Women completing all phases of our residential programming have an opportunity to receive 12 weeks of a very comprehensive treatment plan.  Others may choose or require a shorter length of stay which would be determined by their individual treatment goals.


  Our Goal is to provide an educational and personal awareness program in a supportive residential setting that will assist women to gain the knowledge and skills they need to maintain healthier lifestyles.

Our partnership with community agencies is founded in our commitment to provide a seamless continuum of care, through appropriate and effective referrals, to meet the individual recovery goals of individual clients.

Our responsibility as a service provider for women is to educate and to advocate in response to the social inequities and issues of accessibility that are barriers to women seeking support for their recovery process.

We believe women of all cultures, races, religious beliefs, sexual preferences and socio-economic status require services that are  sensitive to them as individuals. We strive to employ women who reflect these diversities
