A successful recovery journey includes four essential pillars--home, health, purpose, and community. McAuley Residence provides a stable and solid foundation including all of the recovery pillars as well as time—up to two years to complete the program.
A highly structured three-phased program, McAuley Residence provides a safe and comfortable home, access to nutritious food, and multiple evidenced-based inventions for mothers and children. Women commit to actively engage in their individualized program, which is designed to promote positive, lasting changes to break the cycle of unhealthy dependencies and encourage healthy independence.
The program has a holistic approach covering all aspects of recovery, including spirituality, parenting, physical and emotional wellness, career and education, financial responsibility, and recreation. Professional staff provide comprehensive individual coaching, psycho-educational and therapeutic groups, and guide community meetings.
The program offers a variety of opportunities for residents to work in groups, including trauma-informed yoga, wellness, parenting curriculums, weekly community meetings, weekend planning, and smoking cessation. Mothers also attend outpatient therapy, 12 step meetings, and telehealth appointments with community providers.
