ABOUT WOMEN’S ADDICTION RECOVERY MANOR

Set in northwestern Kentucky on the banks of the Ohio River, Women’s Addiction Recovery Manor (WARM) is a non-profit organization that offers long-term residential treatment to adult women struggling with substance abuse. Residents must be 18 or older and not pregnant at the time of entry. Detox services are not offered on-site.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

The program is peer-driven, 12-step based, and supplemented by the Kelly Foundation’s Recovery Dynamics treatment model, an activity curriculum based on progress through the 12-Steps. WARM also follows a social model of recovery.

Residencies typically last around six months and consist mainly of 12-step meetings and off-site Recovery Dynamics classes. The program runs on extensive peer mentorship — once a resident’s sobriety has stabilized and she has nearly completed the steps, she becomes a mentor to other women in the program. At this point she is also able to gain outside employment, rebuild bridges with loved ones, and address any outstanding legal issues.

Women must be comfortable walking, as women walk two miles round trip to off-site recovery meetings.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

  • Strengths: Loving atmosphere, strict rules, well organized, great food, able to talk to staff at any time, peer to peer support, which can sometimes be a downfall as much of a strength. Weaknesses: I feel there was done bias. In community where you are the subject your peers point out your behavior. .. Good bad. ..and assign words to write on that subject. Which was actually good for me. The weakness is sometimes you can be accused of something that totally isn't true and can be set back in the program or do a total restart. This facility had gone from a 9 month or more program to 6 month. I completely disagree with it being so short term. I do not believe it's long enough especially for the heavy addiction and problems I had.
