Addiction Treatment

Community Advocates Milwaukee Wisconsin


Positive Options for Women Entering Recovery (POWER) is a Case Management program serving mothers and pregnant women who are addicted to drugs and/or alcohol. 

This program helps women to achieve and maintain abstinence from alcohol and drugs, understand and recover from trauma, domestic violence, and mental health issues, and improve their social and economic well-being.

The POWER program does the following:

• Draws on the expertise of professionals from the fields of medicine, social services, child care, and substance addiction
• Centers around the client, so that each treatment plan is built to meet each woman’s individual needs and circumstances
• Addresses crisis issues first, then long-term goals
• Encourages each woman to set her own goals and build upon her strengths
• Ensures that a woman’s care continues across all areas of her life
