WISH-TV covers reopening of La Verna Lodge for Women

WISH-TV Channel 8 in Indianapolis recently aired a report about the reopening of Fairbanks’ La Verna Lodge for Women. It included an interview with a former resident. Watch the story below.

La Verna Lodge for Women 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.

Fairbanks dedicated the first half of 2017 to restructuring the program at the lodge and updating the facilities. That included the addition of a psychiatrist and clinical staff who specialize in the treatment of women with co-occurring substance use and trauma disorders. Updates in the lodge included new paint, flooring and furniture.

La Verna Lodge for Women, located in Shelbyville, Ind., has room for 10 residential patients at a time. For more information and to schedule an assessment, visit the website www.lavernalodge.com or call 877-290-3946.
