Prevention Services

Greenhope’s Community Residential Program has six beds available to provide substance abuse services to women uninvolved in the criminal justice system. Client enrollment is voluntary. However, they are expected to participate in the full range of services. Greenhope intervenes at a critical point in their lives, addressing substance abuse and other clinical issues helping them to make the transition to self-sufficiency and independent living. The Family Development program is designed to meet the multiple and complex needs of mothers who are chemically dependent and are mandated to treatment as a condition of public assistance eligibility and those re-entering society after incarceration. This program is designed to prevent children from being placed in or returned to foster care, to prevent relapse, and to assist mothers in achieving self-sufficiency. Clients participate in family, individual and group counseling, substance abuse counseling, relapse prevention workshops, chemical dependency education, vocational and educational groups, parenting skills development, foster care workshops, referrals, empowerment seminars and recreational activities.
