Historically, women are more likely to face barriers in seeking the appropriate help regarding substance use and mental health disorders. Women also have significantly less gender-specific options for support, especially when looking for affordable and appropriate recovery residences for women in the Charlotte area. Bettie’s House provides an option for women who need a safe, affordable place for women to recover and grow.
The structure consists of each resident honoring their commitment to their PHP/IOP schedule, community support meetings, obtaining employment when appropriate, community volunteer opportunities, Bettie’s House activities, and required house meetings. To ensure accountability within the community, we do provide drug and alcohol testing every 72 hours at minimum. In addition, we do require curfew, household chore expectations, wake-up time, and medication compliance to be adhered to.
