Everyone deserves a chance.

Safe Refuge offers a complete continuum of care.




For over 34 years, Safe Refuge is known for offering a complete continuum of care: from residential to outpatient drug and alcohol treatment so that they may retake control of their lives.

At Safe Refuge, we believe everyone deserves the chance to recover from addictions to alcohol or drugs and so our programs are open to the population at large – not just those financially able to fund their own recovery. We also serve clients with combined mental health and addiction issues (co-occurring disorders).

Our Services

Safe Refuge assists a wide range of underserved clients with a full spectrum of programs designed to help them rebuild their lives and move them to self-sufficiency.
