  • Supporting Mothers in Recovery

    7 MAR. 2024 · On this episode we are talking about Supporting Mothers in Recovery. Our guest is Brooke Burkett, who is a Clinical Supervising Counselor and the MOM + Me Recovery Program Coordinator here at CommQuest. Brooke begins the interview by addressing the stigma that often surrounds the issue of mothers in recovery. CommQuest strives for a welcoming and non-judgmental environment for all of our clients and we understand the needs of mothers in recovery. The discussion moves on to cover how the Mom and Me Program is designed to meet the needs of mothers in recovery and, moreover, how we as an agency also try to meet those needs, even when a mother does not specifically meet the criteria of the Mom and Me Program. This includes our working relationship with community partners, and how our other programs such as the Women’s Residential Recovery Program is sensitive to the needs of mothers in recovery. This podcast is brief yet extremely informative regarding the often-sensitive issue of mothers in recovery. We hope you will give it a listen.

    31 MAY. 2023 · Join us on the latest episode of the Hope Discovered podcast to learn what it means for a provider to be “Safe Zone” trained to help clients and other members of the LGBTQ+ community who need to access services and treatment.

If an organization displays the “Safe Zone” logo or is “Safe Zone Trained", they may have some team members who have completed Safe Zone training, or it may simply be a way for them to show they are supportive of LGBTQ+ individuals and identities.
