Women and Children’s Program

SFRC operates the only Women and Children’s Residential Treatment Program in the state where women can bring their children age 0-3 into treatment with them for up to 90 days of residential treatment.

The program promotes healthy attachment and bonding between mothers and children by eliminating barriers to substance use disorder treatment for pregnant and post-partum women. It also aims to cease trauma, illness and addiction across multiple generations of New Mexico families.

The Women and Children’s Residential Treatment Program focuses on evidence-based, trauma-informed, holistic treatment of substance use disorders.

The program structure includes 8-12 hours a day of dynamic activities to anchor long term sobriety including groups on relapse prevention, mindfulness, acupuncture, yoga, nature, fitness, sweat lodge, art, music, and self-defense. The SFRC works to program specific activities geared towards the needs of mother and children.
Clients are assigned a core counselor to work with during their time in treatment. They work with their counselor to develop individualized treatment plans with goals, objectives and interventions.

Individual plans are specific to each client’s needs during every level of care and are designed to include culturally appropriate interventions for each client. All plans include a discharge plan and a relapse prevention plan. Women and Children’s Residential Treatment Program clients have a minimum of 1 individual therapy session a week and are assigned a core counselor to work with during treatment.

SFRC has a physician on staff who specializes in addiction treatment for pregnant and postpartum women, including detoxification. We also partner with Las Cumbres Community Services to provide infant mental health services for the mothers and children.

Clients also participate in focus groups, peer run groups, psycho educational groups, 12-step educational groups and therapeutic interventions every weekday with a core group comprising 5 –7 clients.

Every Sunday is Family Day for the short-term residential program, and family members are welcome to visit.

*SFRC uses the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) criteria and the Bio-Psychosocial Model for assessments and programmatic development.

* ASAM criteria consider several different dimensions in the client’s life from substance use, mental health conditions, medical conditions, and access to a safe stable living environment. The Bio-Psychosocial Model is a broad view that attributes disease outcome to the intricate, variable interaction of biological factors, psychological factors, and social factors.
