Passage Program for Women
a treatment program designed specifically for women.
Chemically dependent women often bring to treatment a
unique history and set of needs. We have found that women
respond better to supportive and open networks with other
women. Passage gives priority to pregnant and parenting
women and provides free childcare while clients participate
in the program. The Passage Program has been counseling
women since 1977.
In addition to individual and group counseling with women only, the Passage Program for Women offers:
Childcare at no cost: Women can attend
treatment without worrying about who will care for
A sliding fee scale: To prevent the cost of treatment
from being overwhelming, the cost is based on family income and
the number of dependents.
A safe environment: Some women live with fear
and feel like there is no safe place. Passage is a nurturing
environment that can help foster the belief in women that they
can be safe and begin to trust people.
