Family Treatment Support
Addiction is a family disease. As our patients work towards recovery from addiction this or other mental health disorders, we provide their families with the knowledge and skills they need to support their loved ones and themselves. We also offer support to other families who may need it.
Concurrent Trauma & Addiction Program
Why is a facility to help treat women specifically so essential? Because for many women, men are the cause of the trauma they have faced, which may have in turn lead to substance abuse and addiction. Childhood abuse, domestic abuse, and sexual assault at the hands of men are far too common. As a result, many women seek treatment with other women in recovery. The shared bond can help build relationships and support that aid in long-term recovery.
Core Addiction and Mental Health
Many women who experienced domestic abuse, sexual assault, or childhood trauma experience depression and anxiety later in life, and ultimately turn to drugs and alcohol to cope. And since many women experience these earlier instances of violence at the hands of male partners and family members, it may be hard to open up and share the experiences in the presence of other men.
That’s why we offer a safe space for women to focus on their recovery with a cohort of other women who understand where they are coming from.
