Providing Mothers with Care, Compassion, and Hope

The MATER program is a national model for the treatment of mothers battling opioid addiction. Our dedicated team provides each patient with the tools to become successful parents through individual and group therapy, mindfulness-based parenting education, career and professionalism counseling and resume-writing sessions, and assistance with community job placement. Many of the often-overlooked barriers to successful treatment and recovery are attended to as well: daycare is provided on-site during all counseling sessions, public transportation reimbursements are available, and connections to city and state assistance programs are seamless.

As we continue to grow our services, philanthropy strengthens our ability to evolve and adapt to the needs of the women we serve, advancing our research, developing successful techniques and expanding our program to reach even more families in need.
