ABOUT WOMEN’S ADDICTION RECOVERY MANOR

Set in northwestern Kentucky on the banks of the Ohio River, Women’s Addiction Recovery Manor (WARM) offers long-term residential treatment to homeless women struggling with substance abuse. Residents must be 18 or older and not pregnant at the time of entry. Detox services are not offered on-site.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

The program is peer-driven, 12-step based, and supplemented by the Kelly Foundation’s Recovery Dynamics treatment model, an activity curriculum based on progress through the 12-Steps. WARM also follows a social model of recovery, and clients are responsible for their own cleaning and food preparation, as well as laundry, light maintenance, and landscaping.

Residencies typically last around six months and consist mainly of 12-step meetings and off-site Recovery Dynamics classes. The program runs on extensive peer mentorship — once a resident’s sobriety has stabilized and she has nearly completed the steps, she becomes a mentor to other women in the program. At this point she is also able to gain outside employment, rebuild bridges with loved ones, and address any outstanding legal issues.

Loved ones may participate in the facility’s family education program, which is held once a month.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

WARM’s treatment team, which is mostly female and includes a registered nurse, a wellness specialist, and certified alcohol and drug counselors. Some of the staff are themselves graduates of the program.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

Clients live in a 32-unit apartment complex (72 beds total) adjacent to the WARM campus. Each unit has two or three private bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, a washer/dryer hookup, and access to secure mailboxes, grills, a picnic area, and a playground (though children are not allowed to stay for long-term visits). The facility is tobacco-free and smoking is prohibited anywhere on campus. Visitation is not allowed for the first ten days of the program, and afterwards must coordinated with the staff.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

WARM has been received very positively by the five alumni polled by Rehabs.com to date. Of the four who were asked if they would recommend the facility, all alumni gave perfect scores of five out of five stars. In particular, alumni gave high marks to exercise and leisure (4.7 out of five stars), cleanliness (4.75 out of five stars), and the staff’s level of training and experience (4.5 out of five stars).

“Loving atmosphere, strict rules, well organized, great food, able to talk to staff at any time” wrote alum T.N., though she also noted that the peer to peer support “can sometimes be a downfall as much of a strength.”

WARM received equally positive reviews on the center’s official Facebook, which it can manage, with an average 4.6 out of five stars based on 90 user reviews to date.[1] Repeated praise cited a valuable education and outstanding peer support.

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

Reviews from loved ones surveyed by Rehabs.com were limited. The one review received from a loved one was positive, with R.M. giving four out of five stars when asked if she would recommend the facility. She wrote: “Excellent staff, very fair rules. My daughter was a resident there for 9 months. I feel the staff done their very best to help her overcome her addiction and other issues.”

WHAT STAFF SAY

Terri, a staff member and graduate of the program, gave the facility five out of five stars for treatment effectiveness and told Rehabs.com that the peer-to-peer model was a strength.

FINANCING

According to WARM’s website, the program is free apart from housing costs, which are offered to clients on a sliding scale basis.

Well I think it is a good place for women that need it but the way they do things their I think is not right like how one person can cause all women in their to be locked down and cause all others not see their loved ones and how the women that was in their to judge and take action on the ones in their and like how when one take and has someone buy them lunch they lock you down for that overall they should not be a load to do that see my wife is in their and I can not see her cause she and another girl had someone offer them lunch one day and now they said I can not see my wife cause of that now that is bs

Strengths: Loving atmosphere, strict rules, well organized, great food, able to talk to staff at any time, peer to peer support, which can sometimes be a downfall as much of a strength. Weaknesses: I feel there was done bias. In community where you are the subject your peers point out your behavior. .. Good bad. ..and assign words to write on that subject. Which was actually good for me. The weakness is sometimes you can be accused of something that totally isn't true and can be set back in the program or do a total restart. This facility had gone from a 9 month or more program to 6 month. I completely disagree with it being so short term. I do not believe it's long enough especially for the heavy addiction and problems I had.
