Lotus House

Lotus House provides a supportive, sober living environment for women with substance use disorder.  Clients will reside on the Family Ark campus with their children for up to a year, while receiving needed substance use treatment.  In addition to clinical treatment, our staff will also provide the following services:

  • Medication for addiction treatment
  • Supportive case management
  • Attendance at regular postpartum and well-child visits
  • Education on safe sleep practices, CPR, and first aid training
  • Breastfeeding resources
  • Age-appropriate disciplinary techniques, parenting groups, and trauma-based education

The services Family Ark provides will prevent children from potential neglect, abuse, exposure to domestic violence, mental illness, substance abuse, and most importantly, removal from their parent. These services will also reduce the occurrence of child abuse and neglect, including accidental infant deaths and pediatric head trauma.
