ABOUT REDISCOVER – WOMEN AND CHILDREN'S CAMPUS AT FRIENDSHIP HOUSE AND CATHERINE’S PLACE

Located in Kansas City, Mo. and established in 1969, ReDiscover is a nonprofit community mental health facility that offers services to Missouri residents with serious mental illness and/or substance abuse disorders. The nonprofit operates Catherine’s Place, which provides intensive residential treatment and outpatient services for adult women. The facility accepts pregnant women, women with children, and mothers with co-occurring disorders.

Women living at Catherine’s Place receive comprehensive substance abuse treatment through a separate ReDiscover facility in the city. Detox services are not offered on-site. Within the state, ReDiscover – Catherine’s Place is among 13.1 percent of substance abuse treatment facilities with programs for pregnant or postpartum women.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Women entering the program initially live in Friendship House, a separate home in Kansas City, for the first 28 days and then transfer to Catherine’s House for the remainder of treatment.

According to the facility's website, women residing at Catherine’s Place participate in ReDiscover’s Women with Children program, one of just a few in the state that allows children to stay with their mothers during residential treatment. In Missouri, only 4.3 percent of treatment facilities offer this accommodation.

Treatment plans are individualized; they are designed to facilitate recovery and offer social supports to strengthen mother-child relationships. Programming includes comprehensive assessment, psychiatric evaluation, individual and group therapy, medication management, as well as case management services. Lifestyle intervention, parenting classes, and family counseling also are offered.

Strengths: Clean, organized, friendly staff, integrated treatment, many options offered, affordable for non-insured clients, transitional housing offered. Weaknesses: I think that they tried their best in my case/experience but my loved one was trusted too much, too soon. I think that they were too quick to judge his character,as he is a very convincing manipulative individual when he needs to be. It is wonderful for anyone who needs immediate help. They were excellent and timely in getting my loved one in the program quickly, without insurance. However, it is loosely supervised, and may not be right for a person who is needing closely supervised detox and long-term treatment.

A friend of mine was admitted. I cannot comment first hand, as it was not me seeking help. The friend on mine who attended has been to rehab more than once. She found God in her last visit and has found all new friends from her help from the facility through church because it helped open her eyes.
