Serving greater Yakima County, Washington, Triumph Treatment Services is an expansive organization with many substance abuse and mental health recovery programs. In addition to its outpatient services, Triumph has several residential programs, each with a specific focus. Perhaps the best way to encompass Triumph’s offerings is to consider their Casita House location, which offers a long-term program for pregnant women and mothers.
Accommodations and Food
Triumph’s programming for mothers is actually divided into three programs: the Riel House, Beth’s Place and the Casita House. While the three homes are located right down the street from each other in the city of Yakima, each is a separate program with the key distinction that the Beth’s Place and Casita are tailored to women doing Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) (such as Suboxone or methadone). Riel House’s program is tailored to women with co-occurring disorders, though all three have a mental health counselor on staff.
Clients in each of the three women’s residential programs live in cottage-style houses. At Casita, some women get rooms to share only with their accompanying child, while others share rooms with another client. Each comes with basic furnishings including twin beds, dressers and a bedside table—all have bathrooms attached as well. Three hot meals are provided daily by the on-staff cook along with two designed snack times, so residents can expect plenty of food breaks in a given day.
Treatment and Staff
Generally speaking, all the inpatient programs are similar in terms of treatment. Lengths of stay typically last for six months.
Casita’s treatment is largely based on the Minnesota Model, the 12-step influenced program that puts an emphasis on spiritual recovery and behavioral changes. Days are largely filled with group and individual counseling, which feature domestic violence classes, Seeking Safety groups, art therapy, anger management classes, therapeutic child care for all children, parenting plans and access to necessary medical, dental, and counseling appointments. There is no medical detox offered as part of the women’s residential program, and residents are expected to have completed this process before their arrival.
A key component of the program is Casita’s support for their clients’ children. Those under six years old can stay with their mothers in the residential home and attend daily daycare. It is possible for residents to bring up to two children with them, though this is largely dependent on available space. In addition to the above women’s programs, there is also a 30-day men’s inpatient program available at the James Oldham Treatment Center in Buena, Washington, and a fourth women’s program coming later in 2015.
A standout detail of Triumph’s recovery programming is what’s offered upon completing residential treatment—they have a handful of transitional housing facilities for program alumni, each with a specific focus. These include the Passage House for women with children only; My Brother’s House, which has three units for pregnant or parenting women and six units for homeless families with children; and the Parkway Place Apartments, which has staff on-site to offer case management.
With an organization as large as Triumph Treatment Services, it’s sometimes more instructive to look at a specific program to get an understanding of the type of care offered. As evidenced by the Casita program, specifically designed for pregnant and parenting women, Triumph clearly puts a priority on family. In addition to the long-term residential care offered at the Casita, Beth’s Place, Riel House and James Oldham Treatment Center, they also have an extensive temporary housing program and outpatient services which continue their well-established pattern of providing family- and 12-step focused care.
