Edgewater Recovery Center Program for Women

Finding an addiction treatment program that meets your unique needs is essential for lasting recovery. Edgewater Recovery Center offers treatment, for women, that is specialized based on your physical, mental and spiritual needs. Gender-specific treatment, taking the female experience into account, has proven particularly useful in helping women achieve lasting freedom from addiction.

Edgewater Recovery Center offers a complete program of care for women suffering from substance abuse. Are you in need of a structured residential aftercare following a 30-day inpatient or residential treatment stay? Or are you looking for a step up in treatment intensity for a traditional outpatient treatment program? Whatever your specific need, Edgewater’s Residential Treatment Program model offers a full clinical continuum of care. We combine this with a comprehensive community living environment. This model offers patients, and their families, the most complete addiction treatment in order to support a lifetime of sustainable recovery from drugs and alcohol.


Intensive Residential Program

Edgewater Recovery Center’s residential treatment program is a treatment model that combines the latest clinical models with evidence-based therapies, and 12-Step principles. Patients take part in individual, group, and family therapy, along with intensive case management and a unique life skills program. Each of our patients receives individualized treatment from a licensed therapist. We combine this with group treatment. Our focus is on triggers, women-specific issues, family dynamics, relapse prevention and spirituality. Edgewater offers the most proven holistic and comprehensive treatment for women suffering from substance abuse.

Women Experience Addiction Differently Than Men

Women and men may begin drinking alcohol or using drugs for similar reasons. However, they are dealing with very different circumstances. Therefore, they may experience addiction and recovery in different ways.

We help women learn to live by the follow values:

» Accountability «
» Integrity «
» Humility «
» Commitment «
» Self-Discipline «
» Compassion «

By utilizing proven approaches, combined with a small intimate setting, Edgewater Recovery Center offers a very personal and empowering experience for its clients.

We believe that our communities become stronger with each individual life that is changed. Edgewater Recovery Center prides itself on being a part of our clients's personal journey towards a rewarding life of recovery.

It is our goal to be able to provide the ideal atmosphere to promote the individual's desire to change and to provide the most effective means to implement that change in their daily life.

Long-Term Program

Edgewater’s long-term treatment program offers patients a full continuum of care. Here, they step through phases of treatment, learning the necessary skills to achieve a lifetime of sustainable recovery. A long term, phase model of treatment allows the patient the importance of clinical work, but also the ability to transition back into everyday living. This has proven to be the most beneficial to a person suffering from drug addiction and alcoholism.

Edgewater Recovery Center’s long-term treatment program allows for this vital extended engagement. Our program also facilitates intensive family involvement in treatment. Our patients are given the freedom to stumble or struggle while in a safe, caring and therapeutic clinical setting. It is Edgewater's purpose to offer the most complete addiction treatment services, supporting the best recovery outcomes, for both patients and their families.

During Edgewater's long-term treatment program, while stepping down through phases of treatment, patients live in a fully staffed, structured non-institutional community living setting. Our facility is for women only. Patients live together, forming bonds and lasting friendships within the community. This supervised setting supports patient responsibility through peer-to-peer accountability. Our beautiful facility, staffed 24/7 with Edgewater's Residential Managers (RM’s), helps our patients learn important life skills outside of the clinical environment.

Edgewater's long-term program connects the 12-Step philosophy to the unique pressures women with addiction face. This includes introduction to the 12 step community through meetings, fellowship, and sponsorship. Our life skills sessions connect you with support staff, employment education, and community participation. Structured community living allows patients the support and care they need while working through substance abuse, as well as behavioral and emotional issues.

Life Skills

Blue Sky knows that treatment is only the beginning of the journey. We realize our clients may encounter certain obstacles in their recovery. That is why we have partnered with Young People in Recovery to offer our clients a unique life skills program that is specific to their needs.

YPR and Blue Sky Recovery Center believe that individuals who are actively invested in their life-planning achieve the highest level of success in their treatment and recovery. The “My Recovery is E.P.I.C. program” focuses on:

» Employment «

» Housing «
» Leadership «
» Empowered Recovery «
» Recovery Messaging «
» Finance «


The longer a person can take advantage of treatment and recovery services, the stronger chance they have of achieving and maintaining lasting sobriety.

Edgewater Recovery Center is an extended-care addiction recovery program. Our Outpatient therapy, for alcohol and drug addiction and chemical dependency, is a step down from the long-term program. The outpatient program also includes individual and group therapy sessions. In this phase of treatment the client’s treatment plan will be changed to meet her ongoing recovery needs.

Here, the focus shifts towards external change. Clients will explore long-term goals, as well as identify and break down barriers to their freedom from addiction. The staff at Edgewater Recovery Center will continue to support the client in their Journey of Recovery.
