The Healing Place of Wake County, Inc.



The Healing Place of Wake County is a non-profit rescue and rehabilitation facility that offers a free, long-term, peer-run, 12-step-based residential recovery program for homeless adults with alcohol and drug addictions.

The Healing Place men's facility opened on January 15, 2001. The women's facility opened on January 16, 2006. Since then, we have provided 733,000 beds of shelter. Our success rate is 70% sober one year post graduation.

Modeled after a nationally recognized rehabilitation facility, our program offers addicted, homeless men and women the opportunity to become responsible, productive, and self-supporting citizens through a number of programs:

Emergency Shelter ; The Sobering-up Center ; Off-the-Street Program ; Phase Recovery Program ; Health Care and Self Care Clinic .

In addition to basic shelter, The Healing Place offers the hope of recovery to those who seek change from the paired problems of addiction and homelessness. Based on a peer-to-peer recovery model, our unique program helps homeless alcoholics and addicts become responsible, productive, and self-supporting citizens.

Education about addiction, which includes the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, is essential to that success.

Mission: To offer innovative recovery and rehabilitation to homeless alcoholic and chemically dependent men and women through a continuing mutual-help program that kindles their desire to return to a meaningful and productive life.
