Characteristics and Principles of Family-Centered Treatment
Family-centered treatment at Chrysalis House includes: clinical treatment, clinical support, and community support services that addresses substance use, mental health, physical health, and developmental, as well as social, economic, and environmental needs for women and their children. Chrysalis House implements trauma-informed and trauma-sensitive services and treatment milieu.
Our family-centered residential treatment program includes a broad continuum of programs and strategies designed to address dependence, ameliorate adverse consequences associated with substance use, return biopsychosocial functioning and reduce/eliminate substance use. Behavioral therapies, motivational enhancements, pharmacological interventions, and case management are common elements of treatment.
Family is inclusive of the supportive network of relatives and others whom the woman identifies as part of her family. The treatment process is not an event but rather a gradual process that moves the woman toward lasting recovery. Our services recognize the unique characteristics of women’s initiation of use, effects of use, histories of trauma, co-occurring mental health and physical disorders, and other treatment issues including the importance and continuity of relationships in women’s lives.
