Structure, planning, consistency, and execution are all key components to success. This time in a young woman’s life, going from home/parental environment to an independent self governed lifestyle, is a critical transition.  Enlisting a support system to insure a smooth transition is even more necessary for teen girls who have had negative experiences with alcohol and drugs.


Young women leaving home are going into the world where binge drinking, experimental drug use, and sexual promiscuity are at an all time high in the US. Choosing a resident community that focuses on abstinence from mind/mood altering substances can be the difference in success or failure. Having a support system of other young women with the same focus increases the odds of success in completing education and instills harm reduction in the area of recovery.


Ohana CA is specifically designed for women transitioning into adulthood with a focus on the future. Transitional Living Residences provide the structure and sense of community necessary for recovery. Daytime and live-in staff provide accountability and direction so that the residents remain focused, as well as develop new life skills. Working together with the other residents creates an environment that’s fun and encouraging.
