I have been familiar with the work of Susan B. Anthony Center for over a decade. I have referred clients there, and observed the work of professional colleagues at the site. I have been very impressed with the systemic, holistic approach that sets Susan B. Anthony apart. So many women caught in the cycle of substance abuse lose their children, and then succumb to even deeper despair and renewed abuse. The children, too, suffer, as they may get shuttled between foster homes and feel abandoned by their mother. Susan B. Anthony allows mother and child to heal together, and strengthens the bond instead of erasing it. I only wish there were more such centers.

Susan B. Anthony Recovery Center is dedicated to ensure that women who are battling the disease of addiction are able to remain with their children while doing so. Addiction is a deadly disease and there is more stigma attached to it when a woman is fighting this disease as compared to a man as the woman is not only looked upon as an "addict" but also as a bad mother. The children of persons with addictions suffer the most due to this disease. Susan B. Anthony ensures that the whole family is treated, not only by maintaining the mother-child bond but also by offering Family Groups to educate family members on the disease of addiction and also Al-Anon Groups that help family members know that they are not alone. This program saves lives of women, children and families.

As an Administrator for Foster Care & Adoptions here in Broward County, Florida I had seen what happens to children who are removed from their families. Even when placed with outstanding Foster Families, these children just wanted to be home with their "Mommy". The vast majority of the children were placed in care due to an addiction issue in the family. The susan B Anthony Recovery Center removes the number one barrier for women to enter substance abuse treatment programs - that is not wanting to leave their children to relative or state care. This wonderful center provides a safe place for the entire family to live while providing the intensive services needed by both the women and their children.
