Sober House Description:
SSTAR Birth is a women’s sober house specializing in the care of pregnant and parenting women in North Kingstown, RI.
Sober living houses also called sober homes and sober living environments, are facilities that provide safe housing and supportive, structured living conditions for people exiting drug rehabilitation programs. Sober houses serve as a transitional environment between such programs and mainstream society.
SSTARbirth is a long-term, residential substance abuse treatment program specifically designed for pregnant, postpartum and parenting women. SSTARbirth is the only specialty program of its kind, in the state of Rhode Island. We are a family reunification program and women participate in treatment with their young children. Sstarbirth opened its doors to its first client in January 1994. The program allows for 6 months of treatment and has the capacity for 12 women and 24 children.
The SSTARbirth program provides gender-sensitive services that focus on a woman’s sources of strength and resiliency. Using a holistic approach directed toward helping a woman heal her mind, body and spirit, we rely on the principles and traditions of AA/NA to help women become abstinent. The program services include, but are not limited to: individual counseling; psychiatric evaluations and medication management; case management; group therapy; co-occurring disorder education; substance abuse education; relapse prevention; expressive arts; Seeking Safety trauma curriculum; Helping Women Recover curriculum; Nurturing Families parenting program; onsite licensed daycare; transportation; transitional support and continuing care. We collaborate with other agencies in the community to offer specialty psycho-educational groups such as nutrition, health and wellness, domestic violence, HIV education, and Early Intervention services for children under 3 years of age.
