Pregnancy, Parenting, and Family Support
Parents in recovery have two big hills to climb: taking care of themselves and taking care of their children.
Focusing first on the recovery of the mother, our Pregnant and Parenting Program (P3) helps mothers-to-be deliver healthy babies. Primary care needs and specific women’s health issues are addressed by our Women’s Wellness Program.
