For 53 years, Aventa Addiction Treatment for Women has been offering alcohol, drug, gambling and nicotine addiction treatment for women.
Aventa offers a trauma-informed curriculum specifically designed for women with addictions, the treatment program has been researched and written by Dr. Stephanie Covington, a nationally recognized clinician, author and lecturer. Our treatment programs place an emphasis on providing an environment that is safe, supportive, and establishes a clear recovery process for women.
One of Aventa’s priorities is working with pregnant women; pregnant women are admitted without delay which helps decrease the risks associated with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD).
