A Reprieve for Women specializes in alcohol and drug treatment for women and addresses additional concerns that may be present at admission or manifest during their stay.

A Reprieve for Women strives to create a loving and safe environment that is positive, creative, caring, and fun. We believe that recovery can only be accomplished through developing positive relationships with family, community, and self. We also believe that the environment must be attended to in order to inspire our residents and staff to grow together in our quest for mental and spiritual health.


12-Step Program Immersion

Life Skills Development

Career Exploration and College Readiness


Recovery begins with an intimate understanding of 12-step Immersion.  Residents learn the basic teachings of AA and NA.  They actively participate in the recovery process of their peers as well as their own.  They learn interpersonal skills to improve relationships with family, community, and self.  Women learn to find enjoyment in sobriety.

Personal Growth and Development

Life Skills Development assists women to learn to make their health and safety a primary concern.  Attention is given to housing, transportation, financial management, and decision making. Focus is given to individual responsibilities for personal and social relationships.


Self-worth and self-esteem are hallmarks of the program.  Residents learn to examine how family of origin, past and current relationships, violence, abuse, and their own self-image have effected them.  Women learn to use meditation and relaxation as coping mechanisms.
