Women’s Residential Treatment

Our Women’s Residential treatment program is a highly structured program designed to assist women in making the necessary changes to begin a chemical-free lifestyle and develop support systems to maintain recovery from substance abuse. Services are available for adult women and women who are pregnant or parenting. Pregnant and parenting women participate in program services designed to enhance parenting skills and address family issues including family reunification.

A screening is conducted to determine an individual’s eligibility for the women’s residential program. Once eligibility is determined, an admission is scheduled and the individual is oriented to the program services.

An individual assessment and treatment plan is developed to address substance abuse issues and other concerns identified on the assessment.

The women reside at the facility during the residential program and are provided three nutritious meals and snacks daily. Weekend passes are arranged for the women when the passes can be scheduled and coordinated with family members and/or significant others. Family visitation is scheduled each weekend and provides an opportunity for children, family members and significant others to visit the women and participate in family educational sessions.

The program consists of individual and group counseling, group sessions specific to women’s issues, educational groups, case management services to address other identified needs, family groups, parenting, support groups and recreational activities.

Educational groups include information on diet and nutrition, life skills, grief issues, trauma resolution, tobacco cessation, HIV education and other topics designed to address the specific needs of women.

Services are provided by licensed chemical dependency counselors, licensed professional counselors and counselor interns. Weekly clinical staffings are conducted to monitor each woman’s progress in treatment. Treatment plan reviews are conducted to identify other issues that need to be addressed during the treatment stay. The counselor and client work together to ensure each individual has the tools necessary to successfully complete the program, maintain recovery following discharge and participate in aftercare activities.

Available family members are encouraged to participate in the treatment process by attending family groups and weekly visitation.
