Pregnant and Postpartum Women (PPW) is a Family Centered Treatment Program that provides substance use and mental health disorders treatment and evidence-based family strengthening and recovery support models that address trauma, parenting, child education and prevention for pregnant and postpartum women.
The highly qualified and compassionate staff at Haymarket Center is committed to recognizing and responding to family trauma through integrating the identified strengths of each family in an effort to rebuild and empower each household unit.
Haymarket Center's PPW program, which receives funding from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), is built on a strong framework that includes residential treatment where women can have up to two children under age five with them. The women receive on-site medical attention and child care.
Operating under a trauma informed approach, the PPW project provides evidence based practices focused on substance use and mental health outcomes resulting in increased drug-free births and improved health of moms and children; improved mental, physical, and developmental health in children; and improved parenting skills and quality of life in families.
PPW staff includes a family therapist, pediatric social worker, pediatric nurse and recovery coaches who will implement the evidence based curriculums which include Creating Lasting Family Connections to improve family functioning. Recovery coaches implement the evidence based Manual for Recovery Coaching, following women and their families as they transition into the community and providing support for a full year. In this model family recovery coaches engage families, help develop recovery plans, and link participants to self-help, housing, vocational services, medical care, and other services.
These services are supported in-part by a grant to Haymarket Center from the Illinois Department of Human Services, Division of Substance Use Prevention and Recovery, as part of the Illinois State Opioid Response (SOR) grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (TI-081699).
