Many women with co-occurring mental health and substance abuse disorders and histories of trauma are parents who value their roles as mothers and bring skills to the task. Historically, treatment for these women has neither considered the importance of women’s roles as mothers nor included their children. Treatment can be optimized by acknowledging their roles as parents and incorporating this reality into service design and delivery. (WVCC)
