Terra Halfway House

Halfway House / Sober Living

For clients who need continued care beyond our residential program, Nova Counseling Services offers the 90-day Terra House program.

Terra House is a licensed halfway house program for alcohol and drug addicted adults who have successfully completed a primary inpatient addiction treatment.

Terra House offers a caring place for 10 to 12 individuals to participate in a four-stage addiction treatment program in order to advance their recovery and prepare for the return to family, career and community.

Throughout their time at Terra, clients are given sober living support from a multi-disciplinary team of experienced professionals.

Terra offers a helping hand to addicts on their road to recovery from chemical dependency, designed to gradually reinforce a healthy self-concept. We provide the tools and skills training needed to develop constructive relationships with others.

Following Terra, drug and alcohol addicts are encouraged to participate in other elements of Nova Aftercare and to continue their participation within Alcoholics and/or Narcotics Anonymous.
