Liscensed Onsite Daycare for young children

Specialized Care For Families

At Recovering Hope, we prioritize the preservation of family bonds, especially for those with young children, as an integral part of successful recovery from substance use disorders and associated traumas. Young children up to the age of 5 are welcomed to reside onsite with their mothers during residential treatment, promoting a family-centric approach to healing. Our licensed early childhood educators and dedicated daycare staff are trained in evidence-based, trauma-informed interventions to meet the unique needs of each child, fostering a nurturing environment.

Family Bonds

At Recovering Hope, we emphasize the preservation of family bonds as a vital aspect of a healthy recovery journey from substance use disorders and associated traumas. Particularly for those with young children, maintaining these connections is paramount.
