Sheehan Women's Program

The Sheehan Women's Residential Program is an innovative and unique residential program serving chronic substance abusing women 18 years and older from all over Eastern Massachusetts. It is one of the few programs in New England specializing in the treatment of women over age 45. It promotes a true “social model” of graduated care, designed to return women to complete, sober functioning. Participants are prompted to return to their community as contributing members of their communities, oftentimes reconnecting with their estranged friends and family. The average length of stay is 6 to 15 months. Based on a social model, treatment encompasses:

  • Individual and group counseling
  • Case management
  • Advocacy, psycho-educational groups
  • HIV/AIDS prevention and education
  • Supported daily living within a culture of recovery
  • Referrals for medical and mental health services, vocational training, and securing transitional and permanent housing
