Once a woman is accepted into the program, she will either be admitted to the Outpatient or Residential program.
The Outpatient Program is for women who reside in safe housing and have some transportation. They must be willing to participate in regular case management meetings, complete a 12-week recovery based training program, take all medications as prescribed, test negative on all drug screens and attend various training courses including parenting, job readiness and life skills. They must also attend all prenatal/postpartum appointments and follow all directives of the program and its community partners.
The Residential Program offers a limited amount of housing to participants that have been accepted into the program who are living in unsafe housing, homeless or have an open Child Protective Services (CPS) case where child custody is based on acceptance into the housing program. Residents have a strict set of rules and are graduated through the program according to a three phase system of accomplishments. During the assessment, housing options are discussed if there is availability. If there is no availability, a woman will be placed on the wait list.
