Kirkpatrick Family Center

"This is a place where I would always feel comfortable to come. I could not have been happier with the services that were provided to me. Not only have my eyes been opened but I was given the power to want to help and teach others."- Individual served by Community Healthcore


Community Healthcore’s Kirkpatrick Family Center is a 90-day substance use disorder (SUD) intensive residential treatment center for women and their children, focusing on substance use education, parenting and life skills training. The Kirkpatrick Family Center mission is to assist each woman to develop their full potential by providing a safe, educational, and engaging substance use disorder recovery environment.

We believe the use of alcohol and drugs is a family disease. For that reason, we strongly encourage family participation. This may include parents, spouse, or significant other, and children. Our ultimate goal is to equip each woman to overcome substance use disorder, and to transition back into an independent environment within the community.
