About Us

Welcome to Wayside House - the historic and innovative addiction recovery program for women, by women. Wayside House was founded in 1974 by Dr. Susan B. Anthony, great niece and namesake of the women's rights activist, and Phyllis Michelfelder. I feel very lucky to follow these two pioneers of women's recovery.

We are so proud of the professional programs and services offered here and believe you will be amazed at our beautiful tropical setting. Our serene campus is complete with gazebo, brick walkways, gardens of flowers, herbs, vegetables and fruit trees, all tucked away with privacy from bustling downtown Delray Beach.

More importantly, we have a wide-ranging therapeutic program complete with the latest therapies for treating drug and alcohol addiction and co-occurring conditions, including eating disorders. To enhance the experience and increase our success rate, based on the 12-step program, we offer a wide variety of holistic services from equine and horticulture therapies, to art, yoga, meditation and parenting education.

Call us, come for a tour and recommend us to your friends and families who have loved ones in need of our services.

POSNER CAREER CENTER TO OPEN EMPLOYMENT DOORS FOR RECOVERING WOMEN

Many women who have been treated for addiction have a difficult time entering or re-entering the job market. This often interferes with long-term recovery, since they may feel discouraged and hopeless.

Thanks to a $500,000 grant from the Posner Foundation, women who have been in recovery programs at Delray Beach’s Wayside House will soon be receiving help in preparing for interviews, and finding and retaining jobs. In the coming few months, The Tina Posner Center for Career Excellence will open at Wayside House, a 40-year-old women’s addiction treatment program.

Wayside House was selected from among many applicant organizations that sought the funding.

The new career center will feature new and updated computers so women can perform job searches. Workshop topics will include resume writing, networking through social media and in person, assistance with and learning how to fill out online applications,  interviewing techniques, finding continuing education resources, and  financial responsibility – teaching the clients how to make the most of their paychecks.
