Women's Harm Reduction ProgramServices include mental health and substance abuse treatment, cognitive behavioral therapy, and groups to address trauma.  We also offer adult education, parenting and employment classes and support in a community based location.  We also operate a women's reentry program at the Milwaukee County House of Correction.
