Wellcome Manor Family Services is a residential chemical dependency treatment center for women. Although this is a chemical dependency service designed expressly for women, mothers seeking to access treatment services may bring their children to reside with them while they attend treatment. The program offers a unique opportunity for women, including pregnant women, and mothers of dependent children to address chemical dependency issues, mental health issues and parenting issues simultaneously. Through ongoing assessments and data collection the program has been designed to look at all three of these life areas, assess each clients’ assets and liabilities in each of these areas as well as identifying and addressing problems in the relationships of them. The result is a holistic, comprehensive program that reaches beyond treatment and into prevention.
