Program is for women to develop the skills to achieve abstinence and maintain recovery from drug addiction. This means that treatment addresses all aspects of the. person: mental, physical, emotional and spiritual. Women who complete this program leave with a plan in place for continued recovery, usually with an outpatient drug treatment provider. Other services support parenting, education, employment, mental health, physical health and housing needs. Women admitted must have a diagnosis of chemical dependency. The most frequent diagnoses are alcohol, cocaine and heroin addiction. Examples include anxiety, depression, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, eating disorders, personality disorders, HIV, AIDS, diabetes, high blood pressure, multiple sclerosis, ob/gyn problems, sexually transmitted diseases, ulcers, migraines, etc. Women in need of this level of care must, by regulation, "need substantial social habilitation or rehabilitation and have demonstrated an inability to remain abstinent outside of a highly structured setting". It also means deficits in education and employment, poor health care, poor problem solving and planning skills, poor social skills and a pattern of violent or abusive relationships.
