Women's Recovery Services in Minnesota: Cross-Site Findings Cumulative Evaluation Results of A 5-Year Minnesota Initiative Serving Chemically Dependent Women and Their Children: 2011-2016

The Women's Recovery Services initiative provides comprehensive, gender-specific, family-centered services for the clients in their care. This report provides an evaluation of program activities from June 2012 through March 2016. Results show that clients showed improvements across multiple areas at program exit, although only some clients maintained these positive outcomes at follow-up. Higher levels of service resulted in better outcomes.
