Willow Place for Women is a substance use and mental health program for women established by women. Here, our overall goal is to provide a safe, encouraging environment for women who need help. Whether dealing with traumatic experiences, eating disorders, or addiction, our mission is to provide a place for women at their lowest. And, provide the hope they need to get started on a road to recovery.
Addressing Each Woman as a Whole with Rehabilitation Programs
Here at our facility, we understand that eating disorders, trauma, and addiction not only affect a person physically but emotionally and spiritually as well. For this reason, we offer a multi-faceted approach to treatment. This way, an individual can experience healing on multiple levels which address specific and individualized experiences and emotions. With each component of treatment, each individual is approached as a whole being; one with needs in multiple areas of life. So, our treatment can be used to approach multiple issues and lead to successful recovery and help to establish a life of overall well being.
A Safe and Inviting Environment
Women seeking help for eating disorders, substance abuse, traumatic experiences, or a combination of these issues need a supportive environment in which they can feel safe. Part of our mission is to provide this safe and inviting setting for women seeking healing. Without a safe place to seek healing, women may not learn what they need to establish lasting healing. And, without an inviting atmosphere, women will not feel encouraged to discover how they can obtain lasting healing. Overall, treatment needs to be a self-sought concept, or it doesn’t work. So, we work hard to maintain a setting that encourages growth, healing, self-acceptance, and of course–lasting healing and a life of recovery.
Providing Gender-Specific Care
Willow Place’s rehabilitation programs are specifically geared toward the individual needs of women suffering from the painful effects of drug addiction, alcoholism, and unresolved trauma. Substance abuse in women has a distinctive etiology and disease progression, which differs from men and requires specialized treatment services. The impact of untreated trauma on women in early recovery can be devastating and can often lead to an inability to cope without the use of chemicals, unhealthy choices, and relapse. Trauma can be significant or persistent verbal, physical, emotional or sexual abuse, either past or present, which can affect a woman’s, self-esteem, emotional well-being and general functioning. Here, we offer the gender-specific care geared to address the female mind, body, and spirit!
