Specialized Women’s Services
The Specialized Women’s Services (SWS) Program is a 60-75 day program expanding residential treatment to meet the needs of pregnant women and women with young children (ages 6 and under). Many mothers, and mothers to be, often have special needs: learning to care for their children dealing with feelings of shame and guilt, and recovering from being victimized by various forms of verbal, physical or sexual abuse. Using alcohol and/or other drugs became a symptom of even bigger problems.
The SWS program provides holistic treatment stressing the need for nurture and recovery of both mother and child, enabling both to grow into a happy, healthy and serene family. Along with individual counseling and group therapy, an extensive amount of time is devoted to addressing the myriad of needs of both mother and child(ren) such as child care, transportation, medical treatment, housing assistance, education/job skills training, parenting skills classes, aftercare, and family education and support.
SWS clients and their children live in Keystone, a home on the Gateway Recovery Center property. Play areas are available both in the home and in the fenced yard outside the home. Bedrooms are clean, comfortable and safe. Gateway Recovery Center’s Specialized Women’s Services program works with local hospitals and clinics to provide access to medical care for residential clients and their children.
