A woman’s experience with addiction and psychiatric disorders is often different from a man’s due to a combination of biological and cultural factors. Depression, anxiety, eating disorders and domestic violence are more prevalent among women, and can increase the risk of substance abuse. The way women metabolize substances can also cause them to become addicted more easily and have more difficulty in withdrawal.
To address these unique needs, we have created a residential program for women, where treatment is led by women and provides additional therapies geared towards women. These include anger management, relationships in recovery, understanding emotions and creating a life worth living, as well as opportunities to improve self-esteem with fitness classes and yoga.
In addition to this special programming, women participate in co-educational treatment groups with men from our men’s program.

Transitional living programs are not typically covered by health insurance plans, and are most often a direct expense for patients or their families. Some insurance policies may cover a portion of the cost. Our staff will help you determine whether you may have benefits that will allow coverage for this program and, if you do, we will seek authorization from your insurance company to use your benefit. If you need to begin your transitional living program with a brief inpatient stay we do accept appropriate inpatient insurance and are in network with most commercial plans.
