This study demonstrates the economic value of the five-year Women's Recovery Services initiative, which provides comprehensive, gender-specific, family-centered treatment support and recovery services for pregnant and parenting women who have substance use disorders, and their families. The 10 programs served a total of 951 clients with 1,931 children in year four, the basis for this study. Conservative estimates detailed in this report show that the benefits generated by these programs providing Women's Recovery Services will add up to $22.8 million over the lifetime of participants.
