The Next Door has served over 13,000 women since it was founded in 2004. Our Stories of Hope highlight TND alumni who are thriving in their recovery and demonstrate how beautiful life can be beyond addiction.

how we help


It is important for women to detox and start their recovery journey in a safe environment – physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. We offer both Medically Monitored Detox and Residential Treatment for women struggling with alcohol or drug addiction. Our 28-day program explores the underlying issues of mind, body, and spirit that are associated with substance use disorders, co-occurring mental illness, and trauma.
The Next Door’s outpatient services give women the opportunity to participate in intensive treatment during the day and practice recovery in their everyday life. This provides clients the chance to discuss relapse triggers as they occur and develop coping skills to combat them. After clients step down from inpatient treatment, our outpatient programs can provide continued counseling, peer support, mental health medication management or other treatment services.
Our purpose is to assist our clients to successfully transition from incarceration back into the community. The Next Door’s Correctional Release Center (CRC) serves 42 adult women who are currently incarcerated and finishing the last 6-21 months of their sentence. CRC offers an array of services to provide a holistic approach to meet our clients’ needs throughout their transition process. 

What Makes Us Unique


We believe, in order to set women up for success in recovery, we must treat both substance use and mental health disorders simultaneously. We understand each woman has a unique set of needs, so our expert staff work closely with clients to provide comprehensive care that maximizes the full potential of dual diagnosis treatment.


A woman’s spiritual health is a vital part of her overall wellness. While at The Next Door, clients learn spiritual practices that can strengthen their connection to God and nurture their spiritual health. As a faith-based treatment center, we want our clients to know that they are created in the image of God and deeply loved by God. We meet women wherever they are spiritually, modeling God’s love for them through our words and actions.

Female Only

Women have gender-specific needs and goals when participating in addiction treatment. Female-only treatment addresses these needs to ensure women receive the most comprehensive treatment possible in a safe and supportive setting.

Pregnant Women

The Next Door is committed to walking alongside pregnant women struggling with addiction. TND is one of the only facilities in the Southeast that accepts women up to 38 weeks in gestation in all levels of care.

Reflections from Our High School Intern

When I first got to The Next Door, I was very nervous about what to expect. In my previous years, I had read and learned from the basis of a text-book about addiction and treatment, but I had never interacted or had a first hand experience with someone with an addiction themselves. Stepping into The Next Door would be a coming of age experience for me.
