Substance Use Disorders Treatment for Mothers with Children
The Hope Residence at Eva’s Village opened in 2008 to provide a safe haven and comfortable family environment for mothers struggling with substance use disorders, and their children. The inpatient Substance Use Disorders Treatment program at the Hope Residence has capacity for 24 mothers and up to 55 of their children.
At the Hope Residence, mothers are given the support they need to get back on their feet through counseling, recovery services and Workforce Development training; and their children are nurtured through childcare and after-school programs, as well as a summer program. Mothers also receive guidance and education on how to care for their children, helping them learn to “parent” and to forge and strengthen bonds with their children, perhaps for the first time.
