Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Women's treatment for substance use disorders

Chrysalis House serves pregnant and parenting women with substance use disorders. At admission each woman will receive a thorough assessment of her particular needs and a treatment plan is developed. Chrysalis House uses a multi-disciplinary team approach led by a medical director and a professional mental health therapist specializing in the integrated treatment of substance use disorders. Other members of the team may include a case manager, registered nurse, domestic violence counselor, admissions and transitions coordinator who oversees housing and budgeting, and a job readiness coordinator who oversees education and employment.

Population(s) Served
Substance abusers
Women and girls

Substance use disorders is highly correlated with violence against women as both a contributing factor as well as a debilitating effect. The Domestic Violence Program fits within the Chrysalis House philosophy of a holistic treatment approach and provides a unique and significant role within the state and country, allowing for education and empowerment, as well as safety and sobriety to be addressed.

Population(s) Served
Substance abusers
Women and girls

Basic Skills: Chrysalis House patients have varying degrees of abilities and each class is tailored to meet each of their needs. If a patient has not finished her high school education, they are encouraged to earn their GED. GED tutoring is offered in each subject by community volunteers. Patients also participate in basic and advanced computer skills.  
 Job Club: Each patient is prepared for entry into the work force. Volunteers and staff from partnering agencies conduct mock interviews in preparation for job interviews.
Vocational Services: Each patient is assessed on job interest and aptitude so she can be matched with a job that fits her skill set. Chrysalis House provides placement assistance, and has a strong relationship with area employers. 

Population(s) Served
Substance abusers
Women and girls

Wellness programming for women is imperative for overall recovery. Women are typically admitted to residential treatment in a debilitated emotional and physical state, often with few life skills. Chrysalis House will provide the necessary medical and dental care. In addition, the women will be offered a chance to engage, grow and thrive through cultural activities, they will become educated about proper nutrition and given the opportunity to cook with fresh fruits and vegetables, they will reap the benefits of exercise and relaxation techniques, and they will partake in gardening activities which foster a sense of pride and accomplishment.

Population(s) Served

Women and girls

Community Action Council has a Prep Academy for children ages 0-3 onsite at the Chrysalis Community Center allowing women in our residential treatment program to access childcare for their children.

Feedback from Persons Served and Other Stakeholders – the experiences of the persons served and others (for example, families, referral sources, or payers with an interest in the mission of the organization) with the organization.

Chrysalis House collects data for analysis from all persons served. Data collection and analysis will be used to monitor business and service delivery performance indicators.
