Women’s Outreach Residential Treatment Program

The Women’s Outreach program offers hope, love and assistance for women in recovery by removing substance abuse as a barrier to employment and living in the community. The Women’s Outreach program includes both residential and intensive outpatient services that address risk factors for relapse. Services support women in achieving abstinence, maintaining recovery, avoiding illegal activity and meeting parenting responsibilities. The program also provides supports to help women obtain employment and transition into safe and stable housing.

The Women’s Outreach residential program serves women who need a safe and stable living environment in order to develop sufficient recovery skills. The average length of stay in the residential program is six to nine months. Children 13 or younger are allowed to stay with their mothers while they are in the residential treatment program, and therapeutic child care is available. Intensive outpatient treatment consists of an ongoing series of group sessions once a woman has successfully completed residential treatment.
