Women’s Residential Program

For many years, it was believed that addiction was mainly a problem among men. However, women face issues with substance use as well. Women have unique issues regarding substance use, influenced by differences in biology and their culturally defined roles. Women often describe different reasons for using drugs or alcohol, including weight control, fighting exhaustion, coping with pain, and self-medicating mental health disorders. Treating women for addiction tailored to their specific, unique needs can help them find a healthy, happy life in sobriety. Luckily, Spero Recovery Center is prepared to do so.

Spero Recovery Center’s Program

Spero Recovery Center is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide accessible, high-quality care to all. When we began, our goal was to have a program that served the recovery community for those who didn’t have insurance or couldn’t afford treatment. We believe that access to quality care is a human right. Therefore, we created a program that offers affordable, accessible, and high-quality care.

We offer a residential program for our guests. Guests stay onsite for a minimum of 30 days and have the option to stay up to 90 days. When residential programming is completed, our guests should have a working knowledge of the 12-Steps, have accountability with a sponsor and recovery community, and be working through their ninth step.

Guests then can enter our sober living homes upon completion of our residential program. Sober living homes offer an environment where individuals recovering from addiction can live in a community with like-minded housemates. Our network of sober living homes at Spero Recovery is designed to help women maintain sobriety.

Although Spero Recovery differs from a traditional treatment program, we provide clinically-informed recovery programming. Our clinical director has over two decades of experience with various treatment modalities. With clinical oversight, women are allowed to evaluate past behaviors, repair relationships, and begin a life free from substances.

Upon request, guests can have access to different therapeutic approaches. If someone requests or needs therapy, they will be connected with a therapist. Our program does not have therapists, but we can connect men with offsite therapists to accommodate their needs.

The Spero Recovery Difference

At Spero Recovery Center, we teach our guests to recover in real-time. We take a peer-based approach to recovery and our groups being peer-led. We want our guests to feel a sense of community and belonging and learn how to be honest and accountable with their peers. The

community atmosphere that we foster at Spero Recovery enables our guests to feel comfortable and teaches them interpersonal skills. We want to create a safe environment for our guests; our goal is to provide a space to become the people they have always wanted to be.

We also immerse our guests into a 12-Step community. Members from our local recovery community partake in groups to show our guests how to recover in the outside world. Our guests will find sponsors, meet with them regularly, and work through the 12 Steps. Members of the community pass down the gift of recovery to our guests, which allows them to begin the recovery process and eventually pass on the gift to others.

Spero Recovery Center also offers:

● Woodworking shop

● 16 square miles of open space

● Hiking trails

● Two destination summits
