To ensure optimal benefit from our program, we require a minimum of 30 days abstinence from alcohol and other drugs before acceptance into our maternity home program. We empower women to overcome their addictions to drugs and alcohol, by providing a clean and sober living environment. If a woman with an addiction problem has not completed a recovery program, we will refer her to Project Recovery, a Perinatal Recovery Program, during her maternity stay. We encourage her to take responsibility for her own step work, attendance at meetings, and sponsorship. Villa Majella is a "smoke free" campus and smoking is prohibited within 90 feet of our home.
By providing a functional community living experience, we teach and promote skills in communication, problem solving, and relationship building.
We assist women in the process of achieving independence. In return, residents must make responsible contributions toward their support. The residents buy the majority of their own groceries and prepare their own meals. Women living in our home are required to participate in an outpatient drug program, if needed, work, volunteer or attend school for a minimum of 30 hours per week throughout their stay. In addition, daily chores are assigned.
We are a non-denominational organization. We encourage women to utilize a spiritual support system, to cope with the many stresses they may encounter during this difficult time in their lives. We respect each woman's spiritual journey. Volunteers offer an in home bible study and a class on 12-step recovery. In addition, although not mandatory, we encourage our residents to attend a worship center of their choice for spiritual support and encouragement.
