Treatment by Women for Women

We believe that women have unique needs, motivations, and barriers to receiving treatment. CARE allows women to obtain high quality treatment for addictions and co-occurring mental health disorders, with the understanding that women need more options

Child Minding


The CARE program is formatted to allow women with school aged children to drop off and pick up their children outside of program hours.  Mothers with younger children can access in-house child-minding services during the CARE Intensive Day Program.


Please inquire about fees for this service.


Our admission procedure is a simple process.

If you have decided you want help, CARE for Women makes the admission process simple and comfortable.

You can call, email, or contact us through this website.

We go through a quick screening over the phone to ensure suitability for program.

We then schedule an in-person interview to get to know you, offer you a chance to get to know us, and to ensure that your recovery goals can be met by our model of recovery.

Following a successful intake interview, a group start date will be established.
