Critical Success Factors of Street Haven’s Residential Addictions Treatment Program for Women

Siu Mee Cheng and Hayley Bloom


Street Haven's residential addictions treatment program offers a 90-day residential treatment program to highly vulnerable women who suffer from significant health and social care complexity, including homelessness, experience with gender-based violence, mental illness and chronic diseases. Despite the complexity of the needs of the clients, the program supports recovery, greater housing and enhanced overall well-being for the women it serves. The critical factors contributing to the success of the program include client readiness, pre-treatment programming, group-based programming, evidence-based programming, harm reduction approaches and a whole-person approach. These factors are essential for achieving programming outcomes and continuing the recovery journey post-discharge.
