Family Willows IOP


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 women and women with children in the community who struggle with substance use.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP):

The Family Willows Substance Use Treatment Center’s IOP is designed specifically for women. It specializes in 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.

The first phase of treatment consists of meeting three days a week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday) for three hours a day. During this phase each individual is receiving one hour of therapy as well as one hour of 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 from for three hours a day. During this phase participants are focusing on maintaining their recovery and building on more concrete skills to support a life worth living. Treatment throughout the phases could last up to four months to help support participants in 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. This program is open to community members as well as to Families in Transition residents.
