Rose Brooks Supported Recovery Program
Rose Brooks Center
Program Summary: The Rose Brooks Center offers comprehensive services to survivors of domestic violence so that they may find safety and receive supportive services that will help them begin to rebuild their lives. In many situations, substance abuse and domestic violence are tightly interconnected. While substance abuse does not cause domestic violence, there is a statistical correlation between battering incidents and chemical use. Not only do batterers tend to abuse drugs and alcohol, but domestic violence also increases the probability that survivors themselves will use alcohol and drugs to cope with the violence. As such, the issues of domestic violence and substance abuse should be treated simultaneously.

In Rose Brooks' Own Words
Rose Brooks Center’s (Level 3 Drug Counseling) Supported Recovery Program provides trauma-informed substance abuse treatment and recovery services to survivors of domestic violence either residing in the agency’s emergency shelter or living in the community.
Rose Brooks Center maintains two qualified staff members (the Supported Recovery Program Manager and the Shelter Support Specialist) who conduct multiple COMBAT-funded activities:
- screening potential clients
- conducting in-depth assessments with clients
- helping clients to develop and achieve a personalized goal plan
- facilitating individual and group counseling sessions
- providing support planning/crisis intervention
- linking clients with relevant Rose Brooks Center and community resources (e.g., social and medical detoxification, residential treatment, outpatient treatment, drug-free housing, and community support groups)
- administering drug tests
- preparing clients for the transition following discharge from treatment
Helping Clients Achieve Personal Goals
The Supported Recovery Program complements the other existing Rose Brooks Center domestic violence programs to help clients successfully achieve the personal goals they have set for themselves in all aspects of life, including safety, medical, mental health service, and follow-up options (e.g., family, community, or social support systems) crucial to achieving and maintaining a drug-free life.
All services are voluntary so as not to mirror the power and control relationships that survivors have experienced. Rose Brooks Center’s philosophy supports survivors’ ability to know what is best for themselves and supports them throughout their time in agency programming.
60 Total Survivors To Be Served
Rose Brooks Center’s Supported Recovery Program targets domestic violence survivors who use substances. In 2021, Rose Brooks Center anticipates serving 30 survivors with COMBAT funding in addition to 30 non-COMBAT funded survivors.
Participants range in age from 18 to over 60 years old. Of those who enter shelter each year, nearly 90% are below the Federal Poverty Level. Rose Brooks Center values diversity and is committed to creating and maintaining a welcoming, inclusive environment where each individual’s uniqueness is valued.
Within the Supported Recovery Program, Rose Brooks Center has set three objectives, each with an associated outcome:
1) Maintain/Increase Abstinence: 30% of clients who complete treatment will maintain or increase abstinence;
2) Increase Social Connectedness: 75% of clients will identify and use a minimum of one social support; and
3) Increase Retention: 30% of clients will remain in treatment for a minimum of 90 days, i.e., three months.
These are the agencies that have COMBAT-funded Drug Counselng programs.
