Fees: The program accepts Medicaid, certain insurance, and has a sliding fee scale according to income.
Matt Talbot for Women was founded in 1999 with the goal of providing residential treatment for women with alcohol and/or other drug dependence, and to educate, counsel, and support the newly-recovering woman and her family.
We focus on developing personal integrity and esteem by committing to an alcohol and drug-free lifestyle. Our hope at Catholic Charities is to restore the human spirit and empower women to gain dignity from living a responsible and productive life by valuing themselves and others.
Matt Talbot Programs serve all women regardless of race, creed, ethnicity, disability, or ability to pay. Our program also has the ability to accept women with young children.
