Womens’ Recovery in the U.P.
Catholic Social Services of the Upper Peninsula (CSSUP) is hopeful to open a Women’s Recovery House by the end of 2021. The emphasis of this new project is to provide support for pregnant women, mothers and their children, and other at-risk families that are currently lacking in the Upper Peninsula.
While integrating treatment and recovery with medical and behavioral health professionals, the criminal justice system, and other social services. The program will utilize a full complement of community-based services including peer support coaches, housing, employment, food assistance, transportation, medical and behavioral health services, spiritual wellness, and employment.
The location for the new project is still unknown. CSSUP is currently looking for potential houses that would accommodate this program and have broadened its’ search to include Marquette, Ishpeming, Negaunee, Iron Mountain, and Escanaba.”We hope to find a property that will serve as a safe place to stay and remain in recovery, prevent relapse, improve life skills, find employment, rebuild relationships with family members and children, and ultimately move closer to a fulfilling life in recovery,” states CSSUP Director Kyle Rambo.
The new program will capitalize on services Catholic Social Services is already providing including peer recovery and treatment professional-led support groups and individual counseling options as well as additional substance abuse therapy and treatment offered in both individuals and families.
