Avanzando treats women 18 and older who are experiencing co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders (SUD).  The 20-person program provides direct linkage to mental health clinical services and SUD treatment in a single setting by the same treatment team, as well as onsite Medically Assisted Treatment, a dedicated point person to facilitate referrals, and daily oversight by a certified peer recovery coach

and mental health clinical supervisors.

Bilingual peer recovery coaches who have been trained by the state’s Bureau of Substance Abuse Services are on hand to meet with recoverees who have been identified as priority by a clinical team due to a recent overdose and/or detox admission.

Postpartum care is also offered, with treatment during and after pregnancy. Motherhood suites are available for mothers and their infants.
