What if I have Children and Need Rehab?
What Circle Tree Ranch Offers Parents
Our substance abuse rehabilitation centers and alcohol addiction treatment facilities were first established in 1969 in Tucson, Arizona. In the years to follow our teaching and therapeutic communities developed the largest federally funded array of drug and alcohol treatment services for women and children in the United States. Circle Tree Ranch provides residential addiction rehabilitation services for men and women over the age of 18, including pregnant women, and parents undergoing drug and alcohol treatment whose children reside with them on our campus. Circle Tree Ranch is unique among alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers as one of the first to adapt addiction treatment to meet the needs of women and their children, and on occasion men or families with their children, and we are fully licensed to provide these services. The drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs provided by Circle Tree Ranch emphasize the crucial role of community and family in the recovery process. Individuals who bring their children with them into treatment are often found to have greater success in achieving long term addiction recovery.
What if I have Children? – Additional Programs
Parents may bring up to two children with them to our residential drug and alcohol treatment community. The cost for children residing with a parent in treatment is $1,200 per child, per month. We accept children ranging in ages from newborn to twelve (12) years of age. Circle Tree Ranch also accepts pregnant mothers into our substance abuse treatment program. The children at Circle Tree Ranch either attend daycare during the day or attend the nearby elementary school which provides busing service from our facility. Separate dormitory housing is provided for mothers or fathers with children. Circle Tree Ranch sometimes offers special family events at night or on the weekends. We also interface with other providers to assist in finding ancillary services for children in the care of their parents at Circle Tree Ranch.
Parenting classes are offered for all individuals receiving addiction treatment at Circle Tree Ranch whether their children reside with them or reside elsewhere. Students have the opportunity to develop healthy parenting skills, and practice new behaviors while living in a supportive community among other parents with similar challenges. These services provide a very effective “bridge” for families suffering from the consequences of substance abuse to healthy day-to-day family life in the community. Development of effective parenting skills is an effective tool in preventing relapse and achieving long term addiction recovery for individuals with children.
In addition to substance abuse rehabilitation, alcohol addiction treatment and parenting courses, women and men at Circle Tree Ranch engage in a curriculum which specifically informs individuals suffering from alcoholism and drug addiction about communicable diseases and the prevention of STD’s (sexually transmitted diseases), Hepatitis A, B, and C, TB (tuberculosis), and HIV/AIDS.
Circle Tree Ranch alcohol and drug abuse rehabilitation facility also offers curriculum, seminars and workshops for faculty and students on topics which address many of the factors contributing to substance abuse including trauma, grief, domestic violence, assault, dysfunctional families, abandoned children, disease, loneliness, failure and more. The intent of the curriculum is to help students accept and reconcile the reality of their life experiences. Students build bridges back toward a healthy lifestyle, healthy families, and healthy relationships.
