Gratitude House is able to restore hope to the lives of many women and children thanks to the support of our generous donors.
At Gratitude House, we offer professionally implemented and supervised clinical treatment services to women with substance abuse and co-occurring mental health issues. We take a comprehensive, long-term approach to treatment, with the average length of services ranging from 6-9 months. As our clients progress in their recovery, they will step down to less restrictive levels of care to help transition them back into life in a gradual way that is suited to their individual needs. We offer a comprehensive continuum of care that includes: Intervention, Residential, Day Treatment, Outpatient, Family Program, Vocational Training and Case Management. Treatment services are offered based upon clinical assessments and compliance with the Gratitude House admissions criteria.
At Gratitude House, we adhere to evidence-based treatment models. We recognize the unique benefits of gender-specific treatment and strive to positively augment our programs wherever possible in order to serve our clients best interests. We take a thorough approach, encompassing factors like previous life experience, trauma, physical and mental health. An overwhelming majority of our women have experienced some kind of traumatic abuse in their lives. All of our clinical staff has been trained in trauma-informed care, addressing issues including domestic abuse, severe emotional abuse, sexual assault and other types of harm and violence that have long-lasting effects. When these trauma issues are left untreated, the pattern of violence is often repeated within the survivors’ family. Additionally, unresolved trauma can prolong the battle of addiction and lead to frequent and chronic relapse. We strongly believe in addressing and disrupting these patterns. We offer job training, education, case management, life skills and a structured path forward for a successful sober life.
Our overall program goals are to assist women in reducing risk factors associated with the progression of substance abuse and co-occurring issues not just for themselves, but for their families. The MITT program goal is to have babies born free of addiction, who grow up in a healthy, substance free household with a loving parent, and as such reduce the risk of abuse and neglect. Our focus is to teach our clients new skills for coping and maintaining abstinence that will enhance their lives and promote self-sufficiency. At Gratitude House, we help women overcome their addictions, deal with specialty issues, regain their independence, and return to society as sober, self-sufficient, productive women.
