Areas of Focus
Discharge Planning

Discharge planning from the Bernie Lorenz Recovery program begins upon admission. Counselors assist the women in arranging appropriate living accommodations, developing a budget, establishing structure for their daily schedule and support system, and enrolling in a continuing care program to strengthen their quality of life and their abstinence from chemicals.

Educational and Vocational Skills

Through sobriety and abstinence from drugs, these women desiring recovery will enhance their educational and vocational skills to better their lives. By doing so, they will also improve their alcohol and drug related challenges such as parenting, homemaking, nutrition, comparison-shopping, job interviewing and searches, family of origin and self esteem issues, physical and sexual abuse, grief and loss, spirituality, relationships, physical and mental health concerns, and financial budgeting.
