One of the biggest obstacles that stand in the way of a single parent getting sober is that they don't want to leave their children to go to a treatment center. My intent with this thread is to provide info on facilities that will accept the addicted parent and their children. I am also going to post articles regarding the dynamics of being a parents and recovery. This thread will be a work in progress for a while, but keep checking back for updates. Any links that I have added to this thread are facilities that I have looked into to verify they are legitimate (which takes time and part of the reason this thread will be an ongoing project).

If you need information on places that will allow you to bring your children feel free to pm me your location and I can try to located options nearby for you.

If you know of any places please add to this list, and if you have any first hand experience please share. Thx!

Comprehensive Treatment Review Sites

1. This review site seems comprehensive and legitimate. I was able to check out the programs I have attended and they were all there and the reviews were accurate.

Ignore the ads and scroll to the bottom of the page where you can type your zip code in and see the different treatment facilities in your area. They include inpatient, out patient, psychiatric, and day programs amongst other things.

Though I don't have children, I've always wondered if in the future I have a child and fell into deep addiction as I have a history of dependence. Thanks for sharing these with BL.

Thanks Moreaux! There are so few choices for these types of programs in the US. I know in other countries like Oz and the UK they have interesting programs for entire families, though I don't know the names of any off the top of my head.

It would be awesome if someone else would chime in if they know about any reputable treatment centers for mothers and their children anywhere in the world. Please include a short description of the services they provide so people know what they are about and can properly vet them, as opposed to just posting a link to their site (which could otherwise be misconstrued as spam). Thanks in advance!

Especially in the South!
Honestly you would be surprised. I know for a fact Alabamas child protection system is beyond broken. Also there are many Christian rehabs which use loopholes to not register as medical facilities so they don't undergo inspections of any kind. No inspections means no licensed counselors, no licensed counselors means no mandated reporting requirement. Like I said its a complicated issue that will vary by state and even county. Which really sucks for the individuals forced to navigate this shit.


Good idea for a thread. I just urge people to think this shit through and maybe even talk to a lawyer. Don't take some out of state rehabs word for it. Especially if there was a custody battle through the courts.

For mothers of young kids CPS is often already involved :\

Would you consider hanging around the sober living forum and posting? Someone with an inside view of the industry would be invaluable
