Thousands of lives affected.
One mission: Recovery.
Together, we can fight substance use disorder.
A board of 8 Orange County community members started Safe Haven Recovery Engagement Center (REC). The REC is a resource to anyone who is struggling with addiction. Whether you are a family member, friend or you yourself are affected by addiction, we are here to help. 4 of our 8 board members are in recovery themselves.
Those struggling with addiction must change everything about themselves and it’s extremely difficult when they don’t know how. Recovery is possible. But without the appropriate resources, it makes it almost impossible. That’s where Safe Haven comes into place.
In March 2021, Governor Holcomb announced a partnership between Indiana state and Overdose Lifeline to place 2 NaloxBoxes in each county of the state. These Naloxboxes would offer 24/7 discreet access to the life saving drug, Naloxone. Naloxone is used to reverse opioid overdoses. We are pleased to announce Safe Haven has a NaloxBox located at our office at 8275 Ballard St West Baden, IN 47469. This box is checked daily and stocked with at least 12 doses of Naloxone at all times.
April 2021: 55 doses
May 2021: 17
June 2021: 27
July 2021: 30
August 2021: 78
September 2021: 88

Safe Haven also serves as a pass through organization for Narcan distribution and can offer organizations Narcan if they need it. We have been proud to be able to get Narcan into the hands of probation officers, sober living homes, and inpatient treatment centers.
Paying tribute to the one who started it all, Dakota Stout was the inspiration for Safe Haven. He fought his disease for 8 years and he succumbed February 1st, 2018. This video is in honor of him.

Change is difficult for anybody, but is made easier with community support. Safe Haven is meant to be a low barrier, community-ran center. It succeeds as much as the community supports it. So here is where we need your help! We need funds to assist us in opening an actual facility. These funds may be used towards upkeep of our building, fundraising/awareness events, operational costs, legal fees and the like.
This is great news. Gave me chills! So inspiring to witness our community embracing pro-active
actions and accepting that addiction has no boundaries.
This is awesome we need this. Made me cry happy tears
This is awesome. Navigating the system to get some help...it's tough.
So incredible! I always thought Orange County needed something like this.
