Have Options For Treatment In Sacramento
Denial about the extent to which women experience alcohol and other drug problems is still strong. The denial is even more profound when pregnant or parenting women are involved. Progress is being made in expanding prevention and treatment efforts to include women. But, women of child- bearing age deserve special attention.

As an Option for Recovery provider, NCADD Sacramento provides a continuum of intensive outpatient treatment and continuing care services for those in the early stages of recovery. We partner with Volunteers Of America for those women who need a residential program where children are welcome. Those on a waiting list for residential, or day treatment services of Options for Recovery, have the opportunity to start treatment within our beginners pre-treatment group.
Options for Recovery is a nine month treatment program with three phases of services – 4-day, 3-day and 1-day treatment with ongoing support and case management for continuing support . Each phase is approximately 90 days in length. Clients are provided with a minimum of two individual counseling sessions per month. Group participation is emphasized in all three phases. We have a beautifully appointed nursery and playcare for infants and children- with a garden and outdoor playground.
Options for Recovery is free to pregnant and/or parenting women living in Sacramento County who may have recently completed residential treatment services. Children must live in Sacramento County as well. The program focuses on women who are re-establishing healthy relationships with their children; and who may be preparing to meet vocational or educational goals.
