The MOMentous Philosophy
How We Came About
Much of society does not truly understand addiction. Instead of seeing it as a disease, like it is, they view it as a moral failure. Because of this, pregnant women experience undue amounts of stigma, discrimination, and sanctions (like child abuse charges or removal of custody). This creates fear which, in turn, prevents these ladies from seeking treatment for their condition(s).
Treatment works. Support does, too. You will find both here. We utilize evidence-based programs and practices that are delivered to you in your home so that you do not have to worry about transportation, childcare, scheduling conflicts, or cost.
While most programs have barriers to treatment or do not accept everyone, we aim to always be an open door.
Seeking Safety was designed for people with a history of trauma and/or addiction.
Trauma: means a distressing event such as a child abuse, major accident, combat, domestic violence, natural disaster, etc.
Addiction: means destructive use of alcohol, drugs, gambling, food, shopping, etc.
It focuses on coping skills to help you become more safe in your relationships, thinking, and actions.
Every session of Seeking Safety is structured with a check-in, an inspiring quotation, discussion, and check-out. The goal is to use time well to help you get the most from each session.
Seeking Safety focuses on the present. This means you will not be asked to reveal upsetting stories of trauma or addiction. We focus on what you can do right now to create a better life for yourself.
