RESOURCE is proud to have been awarded the “Recovery Champion Award” for our Family Residential Treatment Program at the 2017 Minnesota Summit on Prenatal Substance Abuse Use and Infant Exposure.
Our Family Residential Treatment Program has been working with pregnant and/or parenting women for nearly 10 years, and it’s important for their recovery. Without special accommodations for pregnant women or mothers, many women are afraid to enter treatment. They fear that they’ll have to leave their child in order to receive treatment.
More than 200 people attended this year’s Prenatal Substance Abuse and Infant Exposure summit.
“It’s exciting to see that people outside our program recognize the great work that our staff is doing,” says Carrie Salsness, director of access and operations. “There aren’t many providers who work with women and their children to achieve recovery. We’re the only one that works with children, aged 12 to 17, where they can live with their moms. That’s really unique.”
