Women in Recovery (WIR) is an intensive outpatient alternative for eligible women facing long prison sentences for drug-related offenses. Operated in partnership with the George Kaiser Family Foundation, WIR works closely with the criminal justice system and various community partners to ensure program participants receive supervision, substance abuse and mental health treatment, education, workforce readiness training and family reunification services. Benefits:
- Strengthens individuals and families
- Breaks the cycle of intergenerational incarceration
- Helps women involved in the criminal justice system become productive, tax-paying citizens
- Is more cost-effective than incarceration
- Improves public safety
Addiction, abuse and poverty are factors that impact the vast majority of WIR participants. We help women conquer their drug addiction, recover from trauma and acquire the essential economic, emotional and social tools to build successful and productive lives. WIR is designed for women who are dedicated to changing their lives and becoming positive, contributing members of our community. For more information about WIR, please call 918.947.4200.
