The Women’s Recovery Center is a unique place. We utilize a holistic, trauma-integrated approach to treating substance use disorder and integrating physical health, emotional healing, and family reunification.
The women who enter our doors are complex and have faced multiple traumas, which have contributed to their substance use. By using a trauma-integrated model, our addiction counselors help clients learn about their disease, how it developed, and how to cope in a sober environment. Our graduates develop life management skills, parenting skills, and an overall sense of independence and self-sufficiency.
TREATING ADDICTION, LIBERATING LIVES
Our Mission: The mission of the Women’s Recovery Center is to serve women and their families by providing comprehensive substance abuse treatment, prevention, and education programs that are client-centered, family-based, and recovery-focused.

THE NAME CHANGE
The Women’s Center of Greater Cleveland was founded in 1986 with a small office, a few programs, and a bold vision. Today, the Women’s Center is the Women’s Recovery Center.
For many years the founders of the Women’s Recovery Center wanted to eliminate barriers for women who were seeking alcohol and other drug treatment. In 2011, with more than 25 years of providing substance use disorder treatment services for women and their families, the Board of Directors elected to change our name to match our organizational mission.
