Fairbanks hosts open house for refurbished women’s La Verna Lodge

Fairbanks hosted an open house for its recently reopened La Verna Lodge for Women on Aug. 24.

The lodge, located in Shelbyville, offers a specialized residential treatment and recovery program for women who struggle with a substance use disorder. Each resident can focus on her individual needs in a safe, therapeutic and confidential setting.

Changes made at La Verna Lodge for Women included cosmetic updates like fresh paint and flooring, but also the addition of a psychiatrist and clinical staff who specialize in the treatment of women with co-occurring substance use and trauma disorders.
