Family Treatment and Recovery Programs

Family Residential Treatment

At Avivo, families recover together. Family Residential Treatment allows pregnant and/or parenting women and mothers to enter treatment and housing with their children, up to/including age 17. It is an intensive residential 245G treatment program. Eligible women will have a chemical health diagnosis and/or co-occurring chemical and mental health diagnoses.

Mothers and their children can live together in Avivo's residential treatment program, keeping families united. This is one mom and her son.

This program is more than “just rehab.” The program is 24/7 and participants have a minimum of 30 hours of weekly, culturally-responsive and trauma-informed programming. The program includes a specialized care team of:

  • Licensed alcohol & drug counselors
  • On-site nurse practitioner
  • On-site psychiatric practitioner
  • Trauma-informed, mental health professionals
  • Child development staff

Women participate in intensive groups, receive parenting education and coaching, and find help on reunification between a mother and their child or children. Child development programming supports children, social relationships, play and learning.
