A Seven Lakes medical practice shared a little of the holiday cheer by sponsoring six residents of Bethany House, a nonprofit residence for women in south-central North Carolina recovering from substance abuse disorders.
Haven Total Wellness is run by family nurse practitioner Paula Moore Price and practice manager Timothy Price. Though the women at Bethany House range in age, some of them are younger, a fact that spoke to the couple.
“Both of us have a heart for young people,” said Timothy, who previously served as a youth minister.
Substance abuse is an issue Timothy Price is hoping to make more integral to their medical practice. His goal is to offer counseling services for clients dealing with addiction in the near future. Supporting Bethany House was something the couple felt drawn to as part of their long-term mission.
For each woman sponsored, the staff gathered hygiene products, such as toothbrushes and razor kits, jewelry, and other things the women needed or simply enjoyed having.
Total Haven Wellness is fairly new to the area, having started out in 2019 when the couple moved to Seven Lakes South. They changed locations once last January, moving from one building in the Seven Lakes business district to another when they grew and needed a larger space to accommodate it.
The practice specializes in holistic medicine and naturopathy. Recently, it began a partnership with a nearby lab and can send samples to be tested as part of in-house care plans (to measure for testosterone levels, genetic risk, etc.)
Or, if a customer is seeing an outside practitioner regularly but that doctor doesn’t offer lab work under their preferred insurance provider, Haven Total Wellness can provide lab services independently.
