ABOUT ST. MONICA’S BEHAVIORAL HEALTH SERVICES FOR WOMEN
Based in Lincoln, Neb., St. Monica’s Behavioral Health Services for Women provides a variety of programs for women and adolescent girls who are struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. The nonprofit –– which has been in operation since 1964 –– offers residential treatment, outpatient treatment (OP), and intensive outpatient treatment (IOP), and supportive programming for family members of clients. Specialized programming for mothers and girls ages 13 to 18 is offered, but no on-site detox services are available.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Prior to admission, clients are required to complete a drug and alcohol assessment. Those who are in the beginning stages of their recovery typically enter short-term residential treatment, an intensive program that lasts eight weeks. During this time, residents participate in individual counseling, group therapy, psychological evaluations, and spiritual counseling. Educational groups and parenting classes (for mothers) are also key treatment components. Teens remain in programming for longer – up to six months – and participate in 21 hours of age-appropriate programming a week while attending school and learning life skills in a home-like setting.
The therapeutic community offering, also a residential program, is designed for clients who have been sober for at least 30 days. This program includes many of the same elements as the primary residential program, but it also addresses topics including employment, community re-integration, and relapse prevention. For pregnant and parenting women, the center offers specialized educational groups, on-site daycare, and child-focused programming.
Clients enrolled in intensive outpatient treatment, a six to eight-week program, attend daily sessions, including individual counseling, family counseling, and educational groups. Holistic treatment offerings include art therapy, creative writing, body awareness, and other treatments. Standard outpatient treatment is individualized, and the frequency of treatment sessions is gradually reduced over time.
According to the facility’s website, the staff includes bilingual master’s and Ph.D. level counselors, licensed therapists, and clinical psychologists. One loved one polled by Rehabs.com rated the staff’s level of experience and training a perfect five stars.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Little information is available about St. Monica’s accommodations and amenities. One loved one polled by Rehabs.com rated the facility’s cleanliness four out of five stars and its accommodations and amenities five stars.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Alumni reviews of St. Monica’s are limited but negative. One alum surveyed by Rehabs.com to date shared a negative review of her time at St. Monica’s. Claire expressed frustration with the staff’s level of training and experience, writing: “The staff lacks education and compassion. Some of them are barely out of treatment.”
On Google, three reviewers rated St. Monica’s one, four, and five out of five stars to date. Alum Tiffany wrote that the program, though “hard,” worked well for her, but alum Morgan characterized it as “horrible,” writing: “They kick clients out for nonsence reasons.”
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
Reviews from loved ones are limited to just one positive survey response. One loved one polled by Rehabs.com to date rated St. Monica’s a perfect five stars in all but two metrics, including holistic treatment offerings, family participation, and counseling options. Though positive in their ratings, the loved one noted that the wait list was long and there were “too many people.”
According to St. Monica’s website, client fees are assessed on a sliding scale. The sole individual polled by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing rated the facility’s affordability four out of five stars.
