Project Detour

Empowering women to overcome alcohol and opioid use disorders, homelessness, and involvement with the criminal justice system.

We strive to positively impact our clients and the community by reducing opiate and narcotic dependence, criminal justice system involvement, negative interactions with the community at large, and repeated detox unit stays.

Our approach includes pharmaceutical intervention, counseling, case management, stable transitional housing, community partnership collaboration, and peer support.

Project Detour is a sober living program for women who are either experiencing homelessness or are at risk of homelessness, have an alcohol substance use disorder and/or an opioid use disorder, and some criminal justice involvement. The project is led by community partners united to disrupt and treat the cycle of addiction.  It is a fully integrated solution that combines medical and behavioral care with housing and legal support to create a blended solution. We address drug and alcohol dependence and provide clients with an opportunity for recovery from repeated patterns of violence, crime, and/or homelessness.
