BLISS PROGRAMS         

Bliss House:  211 E. Maple Street, Jeffersonville, IN  47130       

Established in 2001, Bliss House is a 12 bed facility for women addicted to drugs and or alcohol. The program at Bliss House, which utilizes a 12 Step approach to recovery, is open to women in several Indiana counties and is the only halfway house in Southern Indiana with this focus. The average length of stay to graduate from the program is 7 months. The physical, emotional and social benefits to the women who succeed with the program are obvious, but there’s also a monetary benefit to individual counties, as these women are provided treatment that’s needed instead of incurring expenses associated with incarceration.

Bliss Too

In 2006, Bliss Too was opened to offer transitional housing for those who graduate from the Bliss House program. It allows women to live independently in an apartment style setting and have continued access to programs and a network that help foster long term recovery.

Alumnae Association

Once a woman graduates from the Bliss House program, she’s eligible for the Alumnae Association. The goal is to provide a long term recovery network and association members also volunteer at Bliss House and become mentors for women who are beginning their recovery journey.

Volunteer Opportunities: 

Bliss House Committee:   A group of women/men from the community and representatives from the CLM Board of Directors form this committee.  This group of volunteers are responsible for the administrative, financial, and maintenance support of the Bliss Programs.  This group meets monthly (the last Wednesday of every month) at CLM's facility.
