Welcome to Wayside House – the historic and innovative addiction recovery program for women, by women. Wayside House was founded in 1974 by Dr. Susan B. Anthony, great niece and namesake of the women’s rights activist, and Phyllis Michelfelder. We are fortunate to follow these two pioneers of women’s recovery. The mission of Wayside House, is to be a healing environment that helps women with drug and alcohol dependence by providing them with tools to rebuild their lives, reconnect with loved ones and recover from active addiction.
We are so proud of the professional programs and services offered here and believe you will be amazed at our beautiful tropical setting. Our serene campus is complete with gazebo, brick walkways, gardens of flowers, herbs, vegetables and fruit trees, all tucked away with privacy from bustling downtown Delray Beach.
More importantly, we have a wide-range of therapeutic programs, complete with the latest therapies for treating drug and alcohol addiction and co-occurring conditions, including eating disorders. To enhance the experience and increase our success rate, based on the 12-step program, we offer a wide variety of holistic services from equine and art therapies, to yoga, meditation and parenting education. Through our Posner Career Center, we help prepare women for employment and help them find jobs.
Call us, come for a tour and recommend us to your friends and families who have loved ones in need of our services.
