The Credo Women’s Intensive Residential program is set in a beautifully renovated home just outside of downtown Watertown. The family-like atmosphere promotes a feeling of comfort which lends support to the residents during difficult times in treatment. Residents all share in the upkeep of the home and grounds and tend to the vegetable garden in the back.

The Women’s Residence, established in April of 1998, serves up to 15 women and promotes the blending of healthy parenting skills with recovery skills.

The program is designed to help women develop skills and plans for clean and sober lifestyles, and address the impact that addiction has had on their lives that have led to damaging and/or life threatening abuse and dependence on drugs and alcohol.

At all stages, using person centered care this program assists women in examining their own power and resources, as well as recognizing and accessing their own individual life options. The emphasis of the Women’s Residence is to help each resident in achieving the following: empowerment, addiction/cross addiction awareness, healthy relationships, personal safety, assertiveness, family issues and physical and nutritional health.
