|We are a community known as Carmelina's
Home. Our rehabilitation program supports women with addiction
and emotional issues.
Established in 1997, the program
has grown substantially and gained considerable credibility in
the community. Operated by members of the Passionist Sisters, the
program includes consultations with healthcare professionals and
relies on community volunteers.
Since its inception, several residents
have successfully completed the two-year Carmelina's Home program
and at least one hundred residents have participated on a short-term
What sets us apart from other
programs is our long-term abstinence-based residential approach.
Carmelina's Home is a registered
charity and operates solely from community donations and the support
of the residents.
Carmelina's Home is committed to establishing a number of residential homes for women with addictions that are managed centrally but with long-term residential programs that are delivered in each of the homes.
- Provide a long-term residential program for women with addiction and emotional issues
- Establish purpose-driven awareness to attract new residents and raise funds to support our programs
When you join the Carmelina's
Home program, we:
- Help each woman recognize her
- Provide support to obtain education or career goals
counselling on building healthy relationships
- Enable contacts
within the community
- Teach problem-solving skills and coping skills
to accept new challenges
Carmelina's Home offers a safe
environment, healthy relationships, individual and family support,
guidance and counselling to enable personal growth, and the ability
to become independent, responsible and functioning members of society.
Understanding and Compassion are the keys to our Success!
We believe that addiction and
other forms of emotional issues are the result of a dysfunctional
lifestyle. In an accepting, empathetic and loving environment,
you can learn, understand and appreciate life as you become more
independent and responsible.
Each individual can achieve and
maintain a drug and alcohol-free lifestyle.
