Child and Family Services

The philosophy at Meta House serves the goal of supporting children, teaching parenting, rebuilding and strengthening families, and breaking the cycle of intergenerational substance abuse. Meta House gives priority to pregnant, postpartum and parenting women.  Although Meta House coordinates child and family care with other agencies, Meta House is one of the only treatment centers in the state that allows children to live with their mothers in the residential treatment and housing programs and to receive intervention services. Child care is provided.
