Women & Children’s Recovery

We strongly believe that where possible children should accompany parents to treatment and that a strong emphasis on trauma informed care is key to healing and recovery. All clients have access to Florence Crittenton’s comprehensive clinical and children and families services. For young children experiencing critical periods of brain development, timely intervention to treat parental substance use can mean a more stable, substance free lifestyle encouraging healthy development.

Family based treatment allows children to remain safely with their parents, providing comprehensive support and treatment for co occurring disorders.  Each client receives assessment, trauma responsive-care, child care, tutoring, parenting classes, housing support, career education and individualized therapy. Parents in recovery consistently state that their children are their biggest motivation to get better.

Florence Crittenton’s recovery program is a level 3.1 American Society of Addiction Medicine facility.
