Family Willows Substance Use Treatment Center

The Family Willows Substance Use Treatment Center recognizes how substance use can destroy the lives of many, and is all too often a root cause of homelessness. Families in Transition offers a specialized treatment program for single, pregnant, and parenting women in the community who struggle with substance use.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP):

The Family Willows Substance Use Treatment Center specializes in providing evidence based practices to address substance use disorders as well as mental health and trauma. We provide support for overall wellness and recovery and focus on breaking down the barriers so that each individual can get the treatment she needs.

Treatment is divided into two phases to help support a smooth transition throughout recovery.

The first phase of treatment consists of meeting three days a week, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, for three hours a day. Morning and afternoon sessions available. During this phase each individual is receiving individual therapy and weekly case management to address the individual’s unique goals in recovery.

The second phase of the IOP is a step down to two days a week, Tuesday and Thursday, for three hours each day. Morning and afternoon sessions available. During this phase participants are focusing on maintaining their recovery and building more concrete skills to support a healthy lifestyle and overall wellness. Treatment is individualized based on each participant’s needs, ranging from four weeks to four months. Staff hope to support participants in recognizing, examining and understanding the effects of substance use and trauma on their lives and the lives of their families.

During treatment, participants can receive childcare as needed and transportation to the program within Manchester, based on program eligibility.

This program is open to all New Hampshire community members.
