How We Can Help You

The Women’s Recovery Center operates three (3) substance abuse treatment programs offered in the mornings. The programs are intensive outpatient (IOP), outpatient (OP), and aftercare treatment.

All programs are customized for your needs.

PHASE I

Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP)

Phase I is a four week program, meeting three times weekly. The curriculum focuses on the disease concept, defense mechanisms used by addicts, denial, and greater understanding of the consequences caused by their use and behaviors.

PHASE II

Relapse Prevention

Phase II is a five week program, meeting twice weekly. The client creates a relapse prevention plan and gains knowledge, positive coping skills, and responsible and sober life management.

Beginning in Phase II, clients are encouraged to participate in a 3 week Family Roles and Relationships program to prepare the client to be a clean and sober parent as the family engages in reunification.

PHASE III

Aftercare

Phase III is an eight week program, meeting once per week. The focus is on building support networks for continued sobriety through self-discovery and journal writing.

Some of Our Success Stories

"I hit Rock Bottom in an extremely hard and tough manner, but by doing so it allowed me to use those pieces of my life. I’m learning how to build those pieces into a solid foundation that will get stronger and stronger and help me to grow into not the person I was before, not the person I am now, but the person I truly want to be.”

– Former Client

"During my using days, my family and children were there for me to the best of their ability. By the grace of God, my family nor my children ever gave up on me, but since I have come into recovery our bonds have become even stronger and my children ae getting even closer."

– Former Client

"When we come into Recovery, we start off on a new path. Then, as addicts, we decide between two paths. Do we want to stay on the old path that seemed not just easy, but routine and comfortable? Or try to stay on this new path that
seems rocky, brand new, and we do not know where it may lead? Through my sober programs, I am determined to stay on my new rocky path, because it is teaching me to deal with myself as new and the world as new. With the strength we build and the tools we learn, we can learn to deal with anything head on and know that we will be okay and safe in the end.”

– Former Client

"The IOP program is wonderful and I truly enjoy coming and look forward to it every single week. My counselor, Ms. Carol is sweet, caring, and encouraging and I am so incredibly happy that she is guiding me in my recovery. She, as well as everyone at the center, honestly wants to see every single one of us girls recover successful. I could not say anything better about this program and the employees there. ”
