What is A Woman’s Way?

A Woman’s Way is a gender-responsive and trauma-responsive residential treatment program for adult women with substance use disorders. A Woman’s Way provides intensive and comprehensive treatment services in an intimate environment. Each resident receives personal attention and support as she becomes a member of a healing community of women. A Women’s Way is licensed as a Co-Occurring Rule 245G (formerly Rule 31) facility by the Minnesota Department of Human Services.

Where is A Woman’s Way located?

A Woman’s Way is located in a suburb of Twin Cities. The sixteen-bed facility is a tranquil and private setting for women with a serene creek and many nearby outdoor amenities. It is a peaceful place where women can begin to heal physically and emotionally from substance use disorders. A Woman’s Way offers a safe, structured, and supportive environment; developed by women, for women.

What are Co-Occurring Disorders?

Substance use and mental health disorders often co-occur. In other words, individuals with substance use issues may also experience conditions such as depression, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress. These disorders affect each other and interact, making the symptoms for both much more severe and complicated. Regardless of which disorder appeared first or is more prominent, it is essential to treat both concurrently with integrated services. Research clearly indicates that integrated services produce better overall outcomes and result in cost savings for clients and their families. All River Ridge Recovery programs are licensed by the Minnesota Department of Human Services to provide co-occurring services.
