Women's Program Services (Women and Women w/Children)

The Program
The Rose Julia Riordan Tranquility Village is a special place in time for women beginning their recovery from alcoholism or addiction. Founded in 1989, the Tranquility Village is a licensed and certified 42 bed residential facility.

Utilizing evidence based practices and a gender responsive approach combined with a state-of-the-art treatment program, women can begin the healing journey from the devastation produced by the disease of alcoholism and addiction.

The Rose Julia Riordan Tranquility Village offers recovery home services to women 18 years and older in a supportive and safe home-like environment where the accommodations are bright and well maintained. In our residential facility there are innumerable “teachable moments” to support family members as they build healthy relationships, make good decisions, and build healthy life skills.

How We Work
A women’s role in the family often means her disease has had a profound effect on her family. This situation, un-aided, can easily lead to a dysfunctional family. The Rose Julia Riordan Tranquility Village assists our residents and their family toward recovery through education, support and group counseling specifically for family issues. Because women present a unique set of treatment issues, our women and women with children services address women specific issues and are designed to empower women to achieve and maintain clean and sober living, deliver healthy infants, strengthen families and lead productive lives. Women in are services are able to have their children live with them on site. Our women services involve a comprehensive approach, which includes the following: Relationships with family, treatment needs of children, parenting, life skills, employment development skills, economic self- sufficiency, health issues, mental health, dependency issues, self-esteem building, independent living skills, nutrition, ethnic and cultural issues, while integrating a gender responsive/trauma informed approach to our services.

Here, at the Village we recognize the decision to seek treatment, services often is not easy and can occur at any time of night or day. For this reason, admission into our program is simple, easy and is arranged following a screening to determine eligibility. Our services include 33 hours per week of structured activities. It offers 30, 60, 90-day program up to 6 months in length, but a woman can stay up to 1 year.

Working under the direction of an executive director, the staff is highly professional, well-trained, experienced and appropriately certified. Their personal commitment to sobriety, recovery and the joy of living means the Tranquility Village staff is dedicated to the care and welfare of The Tranquility Village residents and their families.

Children’s Program
Across cultures, the family unit is recognized as the cornerstone of society. Women who are mothers demand increased attention to their unique roles as parents, and their children require additional services and supports. The future of our society depends on its ability to foster the health and well-being of the next generation. Our children at the Rose Julia Riordan Tranquility Village will become tomorrow’s citizens, workers and parents. When we invest wisely in those children and parents, they will pay that back through a lifetime of productivity and responsible citizenship.

Research on women’s substance use, dependence, and treatment indicates that relationships, especially with children, play an important role in a women’s treatment. Because one of the leading barriers for women to enter treatment is their children, here at the Rose Julia Riordan Tranquility Village, we offer the opportunity for children (ages 0-5 years) to reside with their mothers, while the mother is in the program.

Our children’s program offers evidence based age appropriate activities that stimulate the growth of every child. We strive to provide our children with a life that is nurturing, fun and joyful, which generates a feeling of belonging, stimulating curiosity and imagination. Services provided to children include: Early identification screening and assessment, service coordination, individual child service plans, recreational activities, referrals, etc. We believe in enjoying the life of a child by laughing, loving, playing, dancing and singing with these precious gifts of life.

OUR TRANSITIONAL LIVING PROGRAM
Research indicates that the longer an individual stays engaged in services the more likely they are to maintain their new clean and sober life style. Because Community Social Model Advocates recognized a need to enhance and promote services through a continuum of care for those individuals with valid reason need to continue to reside in a safe, supportive, sober and clean environment after primary treatment, the Rose Julia Riordan Tranquility Village created a sober living environment. The purpose of these homes is to provide cost effective, step down service, which includes lodging in an alcohol/drug free environment for maintaining on-going recovery for women and women with children. These services are supportive in nature and allow the participant a period of time in aftercare to form and maintain a solid foundation in their recovery. Program services include semi-structured Home-like environment, clean and sober activities, attainment of independent living skills, continued recovery planning, open door policy, cost effective fees for room and board.
