Georgia’s Friends established Georgia’s Healing House in 2015 in the Woolen Mills area of Charlottesville. In July 2018, we moved to the beautiful restored Victorian house on Ridge Street, a wonderful location with access to jobs, community services, education and transportation. Now, Georgia’s House continues to serve as a place where women find safety, community, support, love and hope so they can rebuild their lives after the devastation of addiction.

Addiction does not discriminate. No one chooses to become addicted and those who suffer from this disease need help to recover and rebuild. Women in particular feel shame, guilt and lack of self-esteem, believing they don’t deserve a better life. At Georgia’s House, women find a community where all are held up by the power of love and hope. Our program provides the structure needed for women to organize their lives, guidance in connecting with community services, help in finding jobs and careers, and a calm living environment. Our residents participate in 12-step meetings, community dinners, and educational workshops. Women commit to stay at least six months, but can stay up to two years at Georgia’s House, giving them time to heal and truly change their life styles and choices. And, we remove the financial barrier to recovery by covering 95% of the cost to live at Georgia’s House while the women work to pay off debts and save for the future. We make sure that recovery is the first priority.

Addiction is a problem that deeply affects our community. Lives are lost each year due to drug overdose. Parents with addiction lose custody of their children. Many are estranged from their families and cannot maintain a job. Millions of dollars are spent on incarceration, where little is done to rebuild lives. Georgia’s House provides a supportive and healthy alternative.
