Residence XII Programs
Opened in 1981, we have treated more than 8,000 women and their families. Our clients are women of all ages (18+) from all over the United States and Canada with diverse backgrounds, ethnicity, education and economic standing. What they all have in common is a desire to overcome the challenges of addiction in order to achieve a happy and productive life in recovery.
At Residence XII, every treatment plan is individualized to meet each woman's unique situation and needs, and includes a Famly Program component. Because research has shown that a woman's relationships directly affect her recovery, we believe that the involvement of family and friends is a critical element to her success.
Residence XII's programs are abstinence-based using 12 step program principles and focus on the disease of addiction as well as guilt and shame, self-esteem, assertiveness, life skills for sobriety, nutrition, and relationship issues. Residence XII is a CARF Accredited (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities), State Certified and a member of the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers. Our services are covered by most health insurance plans.

Depending on the situation, continuing care clients meet weekly for 12 - 24 weeks and have an opportunity for monthly follow-up once the weekly sessions are completed.

Recent Successes and Current Challenges
Residence XII was very pleased to receive a 2008 Science and Service Award from the national Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA). This award recognized our work in integrating the treatment of trauma and addiction into our Intensive Outpatient Treatment Program. Women in the trauma group are given information about the interaction of trauma and addiction and symptoms they may be experiencing. The curriculum was designed by Lisa Najavits (2002) and had previously been tested as Seeking Safety through a National Institute of Drug Abuse study at Residence XII. With strong evidence of clinical benefit, minimal additional costs and long term sustainability, this program has now been integrated into two Outpatient Treatment groups at Residence XII.
Residence XII is a 501c3 nonprofit agency. We receive no funding from public sources such as State or Federal funds. Our services are provided to patients through private pay. Most of our patients have insurance that will cover the majority of their costs, and some pay from private resources. We rely on individual donors, corporations, and foundations to support our work in order to keep our fees as low as possible and make our services accessible to those women and families who need them. In these difficult economic times, many people have lost their jobs and their ability to pay. Requests for scholarships are increasing at a rapid rate. We hope that you will support our work through a donation to Residence XII. Please visit our website if you wish to donate online.
