Women and Children's Residential Program

Helping Mothers on the Path to Recovery

SouthLight’s residential program provides treatment for women who are pregnant and women with children ages 3 months to 11 years old. Each woman who comes into the program receives treatment for substance use and/or mental health disorder.

Entrance into the program demonstrates the mother’s first step to addressing substance use, and her commitment to her journey of sustained recovery and being a better parent.

About the Program

SouthLight’s Women and Children’s Residential Program works with women to increase awareness, accountability, and empowerment in a safe, recovery-oriented environment to provide the foundation for long-term self-sufficiency.

“I arrived at SouthLight September of 2017 with my 2-year-old son certain of one thing…I could not continue to live my life the way I had been. While at SouthLight I was able to focus on learning the necessary skills needed to be successful in recovery. Three years later I am still implementing the skills I learned in group. With the foundation in recovery I took when I graduated, I have been able to successfully gain and maintain employment, secure housing and become the mother, daughter and sister my family deserves.”
