Treatment Insights

The Women’s Treatment Center works with chemically dependent women struggling with issues such as homelessness, poverty, trauma, and co-occurring mental disorders. Upon arrival, those in need of assisted withdrawal from opiates, alcohol, and other drugs may participate in a medically-supervised detoxification program for an average of four to six days. Residents attend weekly individual counseling sessions, trauma recovery, medical monitoring, and parenting services. Outpatient services and medication assisted treatment for opioid addiction are available to those seeking treatment outside of a residential setting. Mothers are invited to bring children six years of age and below into residential treatment if desired.

Trm

Overall the detox is fairly decent. I DON'T like the fact that they don't tell you who is HIV or Hepatitis positive. The thing I hate the most is the FOOD!!
