Recovery Services for Women

In recognition of the unique experiences and challenges that women in need of substance abuse treatment services face, DMHAS provides specialized and comprehensive programs for women and their children.  These include residential treatment, outpatient treatment, and specialized care management for women transitioning from a residential setting to community-based recovery services. 

While programs are located statewide in many communities to allow a woman to remain “local”, she is also eligible for programs outside her immediate area, based on availability.  The treatment programs are located in both urban and rural settings, thereby offering unique experiences, opportunities and features.
