Family Willows IOP
At FIT, we recognize that helping an individual or family maintain housing stability often takes more than simply providing a home. The supportive services we provide focus on the strengths of each and every participant and their family while providing vital opportunities to build the skills necessary for self-sufficiency and stability.
Substance use destroys the lives of many, and is all too often a root cause of homelessness. Families in Transition offers a specialized Recovery Program for female community members (do not have to be a participant if Families in Transition) who struggle with substance use and may also have a history of trauma.
Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is an innovative, four-month-long that helps participants recognize, examine and understand the effects of substance use and trauma on their lives and the lives of their families. During treatment, participants receive child care as needed and transportation to the program within Manchester, based on program eligibility. We accept medicaid as well. This program is open to community members as well as to Families in Transition residents. For more information, call (603) 641-9441 or e-mail [email protected]. Walk-in intakes 9:00 AM- 12:00 PM Monday – Friday at 161 S. Beech Street, Manchester, NH.
To sustain participants on the road to recovery, the program provides the following:
- Women-focused IOP (Intensive Outpatient Programming) and outpatient services on topics including emotion regulation, coping with triggers and mindfulness
- Case management
