The women who enter our doors are complex and have faced multiple traumas contributing to their substance use. 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.


Women’s Recovery Center provides treatment for all women regardless of their ability to pay for services. Fees are on a sliding scale, with most clients asked to pay nothing. Medicaid is accepted and covers the total cost of services.

Women’s Recovery Center is a unique place. We utilize a gender-specific, holistic, trauma-integrated approach to treating substance use disorder and integrating physical health, emotional healing, and family reunification. We recognize the disease as a chronic illness that needs lifelong maintenance. Our welcoming, beautiful space with individualized care is a great combination to help our clients through the recovery process. Our clients that walk through our doors know they have found not just a treatment center but a home to walk through the recovery process.

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. Once clients graduate from the WRC they are honored at our annual graduation.

Intensive Outpatient  Experience

As a client, you will have access to other services we offer as part of your treatment. We promote a well-balanced and healthy life.

Family Counseling

Addiction extends beyond the client. In a family dealing with addiction, each member is affected by the growing dysfunction of the dependent person and judgement from their communities.

This therapeutic intervention assists the family of the dependent person to understand their feelings and roles in the family for reunification and to rebuild trust.

Nutrition & Exercise

The Ohio State Extension Service has incorporated a nine hour nutrition segment within the curriculum. Nutrition is imperative to reduce cravings and to replace vitamins and minerals lost during periods of active addiction.


Treat our recreational room like your personal gym! The exercise equipment is also open and encouraged for our clients to use during our open hours.

Child Care Services

Lack of safe childcare is the number one barrier that women face in seeking addiction treatment.

On-site childcare is provided for the mothers engaged in the treatment program who have custody of those children. The on-site care is available for mothers while attending treatment services for their infants beginning at two weeks to
children thirteen years old.

Peer Support

A Peer Supporter is a trained individual who has lived experience with substance use  disorder and provides one on one support to peers in recovery, empowering them to make healthier choices.


Our peer supporters provide sobriety support services and inspires hope of recovery from addiction or co-occurring disorders. This includes assisting with the referral process, advocating on behalf of clients if necessary, and serving as a mentor by modeling successful recovery.

Parenting Classes 

We offer parenting classes that run for five weeks per session. Classes are open to the public for $100 a person, or $150 per couple. The classes have an overview of parenting, personal relationship building, and finances.

Donation Closet

Our Clothing Closet is filled with gently used clothing for clients and includes all weather wear and work attire. Clients also have access to regular donations of children's items, hygiene products, and snacks.

Health Education

Care Alliance offers on-site health education for women engaged in treatment. Care Alliance also provides HIV/AIDS on-site testing and pre- and post-counseling. Clients who are diagnosed with opioid addiction can be referred for Medication Assisted Treatment.

Legal Services

LegalWorks operated by James Levin, generally represents clients who are seeking to move beyond long past struggles, and clients whose legal issues stem from economic such as housing matters or driver's license suspension.

We provide three-stage, comprehensive substance use disorder (SUD) treatment programs.
