White Deer Run Renewal Center

Men and women experience addiction differently, so they need to approach their recovery processes differently. Our all-women halfway house allows our clients to heal and recover with women who can support them because they know what they’re going through – they’re going through it too.


Some women struggle to carry the lessons they learned in residential treatment over to their life outside of their rehab center. At Renewal Center of White Deer Run, women are able to relearn independent living skills so that they can continue their sobriety after treatment.

Take a Free Online Assessment

An assessment is an important first step toward treatment of and recovery from addiction.

At Renewal Center, I felt more comfortable being in an environment surrounded by other women going through similar struggles in addiction. The environment and staff at Renewal Center allowed me to break free from the vicious cycle of addiction and go back to a more normal life!
