A Sober House for Students
Alexander C. Kafka, The Chronicle of Higher Education
Sophie Pyne had struggled with addiction for most of her adolescence. In her junior year at the University of California at Santa Barbara, she relapsed after three years’ sobriety. Haven at College kept her from dropping out.
Haven at College is a private recovery center that acts as a partner with colleges and universities. The Haven supplements colleges’ substance-abuse recovery services by offering a sober-living residence and outpatient programs on or near campuses. That way, students don’t have to disrupt their academic and social lives, as they often have, to get the help they need.
