Treatment for Women
Women are bio-psycho-socially distinct. We have unique needs, motivations, and barriers to receiving treatment. CARE for Women is a new out-patient treatment program that begins in September 2016. It is a trauma-informed and best-practice designed program that is facilitated by credentialed staff in a safe and supportive group setting, specifically for women.
The CARE approach is an abstinence based, clinical model that combines psychological testing, assessment and therapy, with 12-step recovery foundations. CARE for Women is designed for women who struggle with substance use disorders in combination with depression, trauma-related issues, anxiety, or other mental health challenges. CARE for Women is completed over three months in two phases.
CARE for Women is generously funded by:
