This week our member spotlight is St. Monicas! St. Monica's Life Changing Recovery for Women has been providing trauma-informed, gender-specific care for women within a home-like environment to empower women combating a variety of problems intertwined with substance use disorders since 1964.

St. Monica's serves women and their children through a variety of programs including Project Mother & Child and their newest program Women Are Sacred. Project Mother & Child is designed for pregnant and parenting mothers while Women Are Sacred is specifically intended for Native American women. Both programs offer individualized treatment that includes assessing children and their needs and including them in the treatment plan. Other programs that St. Monica's provides are Short Term Residential, Therapeutic Community, Next Step Step-Down Housing, Peer Support, and Outpatient.

St. Monica's believes that women in recovery provide unlimited value to themselves, their family, their friends, and the entire community. For more information on St. Monica's please visit www.stmonicas.com
