Wendy Blackshaw will speak about finding recovery at different times and in different areas of her life. She will share what life has given her since committing to recovery.  

Date: April 9
Time: 6:30-8:00 PM Location: 2265 Como Ave, lower level, St. Paul, MN 55108

Second Intensive Treatment Lodging Opening at West End
The Emily Program opened Hillside Lodging this past January and will open West End Lodging in May. 
Private spaces abound throughout Hillside Lodging

We are excited to be able to provide a comfortable place for adult women to stay while attending intensive day treatment six-days per week at The Emily Program. 

One Hillside Lodging guest said, "Coming back to Hillside after programming everyday felt like coming home!  The house was cozy and conveniently close to The Emily Program.  I'm not sure if coming to treatment would have been possible without my stay here."  Laura M., New Jersey

Hillside and West End are close to The Emily Program offices, shops, public transportation, and restaurants. These non-clinical lodging options provide our Intensive Day Program clients privacy and conveniences of home.

For more information, or to refer a client, please contact our Lodging Manager at (651) 315-3302.
