Helping pregnant and parenting women break the intergenerational cycle of alcohol and drug dependency.

The Family Treatment Services offers a continuum of care for women wanting help with their alcohol/drug addiction. We provide residential and outpatient substance use treatment that addresses the special needs of women including support for their children. As women move out of residential treatment, they are supported with housing that continues to help them in recovery by rebuilding relationships with children and loved ones and supporting educational/professional goals that lead to self-sufficiency.
