What is The Haven Recovery Residence

As part of a national recovery movement across US college campuses, the University of San Francisco offers The Haven, a unique residential community for USF students in recovery from substance use issues or for those who simply desire to live a sober, healthy recovery lifestyle.

The Haven at College is also the trusted national provider of on-campus and online Outpatient Treatment programs in partnership with Universities across the US. The confidential, HIPAA compliant virtual program is covered through student health insurance, private pay and scholarships and is tailored to the specific needs of young adults and college students. Students can connect with like-minded peers who, along with Haven clinicians, provide community, accountability and relief from isolation during this challenging time. Treatment Services include Group, Individual and Family Therapy; Case Management; Life Skills and Educational Sessions. Community Support includes Recovery Coaching, Family Support, Online Recovery Meetings and Online Peer Support.

In addition to living in furnished, on campus housing on the beautiful USF campus, The Haven offers recovery support services and recreation and social activities for students who are committed to their college education while learning to lead a full and satisfying recovery lifestyle. Staffed by a dedicated Haven Recovery Coach and live-in House Managers who are students in recovery themselves, parents can be assured that their student is living in a safe, supportive and secure environment. Students live in single rooms or share double rooms with same sex roommates who support each other’s recovery journey while forming lifelong friendships.
