Rose Brooks Center Supported Recovery Program

Rose Brooks Center's Supported recovery program provides specialized treatment and recovery services to victims of domestic violence who reside either in the agency's emergency shelter or in the broader community. The voluntary Supported Recovery Program complements the other existing Rose Brooks Center domestic violence services and supports survivors' ability to know what is best for themselves.

While substance use does not cause domestic violence, there is a statistical correlation between battering incidents and chemical use. Not only do batterers tend to abuse drugs and alcohol, but domestic violence also increases the probability that survivors themselves will use alcohol and drugs to cope with the violence. As such, the issues of domestic violence and substance use should be treated simultaneously.

The goal of this program is to reduce harmful consequences related to substance abuse and to support those in recovery or affected by substance use, regardless of where they are in the process. As such, the program attempts to promote wellness and prevent relapse by providing screenings, in-depth assessments, collaborative individualized goal planning, trauma-informed individual and group counseling sessions, linkage to relevant Rose Brooks Center and community resources to enhance their personal goal plans (e.g. social and medical detoxification, residential treatment, outpatient treatment, drug-free housing, twelve-step groups, mental health hotlines, mental health services, case management, affordable housing options, faith-based services, wellness-exercise classes, health services, stress management activities, and other community supports), drug testing, and discharge planning.

Combined, these services prove crucial to achieving and maintaining a drug-free life.

Rose Brooks Center will address the risk factor of domestic violence and substance abuse. Because substance abuse and high-risk alcohol use-abuse are more prevalent among individuals who experience domestic violence as compared to those with no history of domestic violence. In fact, spousal abuse has been identified as a predictor of developing a substance abuse problem and/or violence as compared to those with no history of domestic violence.
