We are dedicated to addressing the needs of women affected by substance use disorder and trauma. Our team and intensive outpatient programming provide opportunities for women and their families to take control of their lives – physically, emotionally, and economically.
With the mantra Treating Addiction, Liberating Lives, the Women’s Recovery Center (WRC) has been a unique organization dedicated to comprehensively addressing the complex and critical needs of disadvantaged women who have been affected by substance use disorder. Through our thirty-five years of existence, there have been 584 babies born drug-free to former clients of the WRC.
Every day, we are grateful to witness the miracles of recovery.
In all programs, treatment planning includes:
Individual & Group Therapy
(connecting if necessary)
Art Workshop & Music Therapy
Nutrition & Integration of Physical Health
Treatment Program Overview
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.
Relapse Prevention (OP)
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. In Phase II, clients are encouraged to participate in a five-week Parenting Class to prepare to be a clean and sober parent as the family engages in reunification
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.
We Want You To Succeed
“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
“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.“
– Former Client
We recognize substance abuse disorder as a chronic illness that needs lifelong maintenance and we are grateful for every person we get to help. The women who enter the doors of the Women's Recovery Center are always treated with dignity & respect.
