TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
The program offers a peer-driven model of recovery and applies a holistic approach to treatment. According to the facility’s website there are four distinct stages to treatment.
The program starts with Safe off the Streets (SOS), a safe, non-medical environment that allows for the women to begin creating their plan to recovery. After SOS, Motivational Tracks provides women with a low-pressure environment where they can commit to the process of recovery. Phase 1 focuses on building fundamental life skills such as economic independence and social wellness, with the ultimate goal of recovery in mind. Phase 2 reintegrates women back into society by helping them find employment, pay rent, attend self-help meetings, and work on maintaining sobriety.
