Willow Place for Women was founded in early 2011 by Dixie Brown and Allyson Chambers after they both spent several years in the substance abuse and mental health fields. They recognized the specific needs of women who were seeking a safe healing place for recovery from eating disorders and substance abuse. This realization led them to a small boutique setting in West Palm Beach where they developed a beautiful, quiet and safe home-like setting for women to find healing. Together, they developed a program for substance abuse and eating disorders that would lead women down the path to stability, hope and healing.
Michael’s House opened in 1989 and has been serving patients and their families through comprehensive integrated treatment for nearly three decades. In 2006, Foundations Recovery Network added Michael’s House to its family of treatment centers, supporting Arlene’s vision and expanding the center to accommodate more patients. Once a facility with 24 beds, Michael’s House now has 120 beds—and has helped countless men and women find the path to long-term recovery from addiction and mental health conditions.
