Program Designed by Women
Our program, designed by women and for women, addresses their challenges primarily, though not exclusively, in four
- Relational issues
The Talitha-Life program focuses on each woman as a whole person and tailors treatment to her individual needs in dialogue with a representative of the leadership of her religious community/congregation.
Our caring, professional staff helps the sister learn to better manage and integrate
her emotional, professional, social and spiritual life through psychotherapy, spiritual formation, education and life-skillsdevelopment. Our clients are supported and challenged as they learn to take responsibility for their own recovery and healing.
We understand that healing and recovery is an ongoing process, so our services do not end when residential treatment is completed. The Talitha-Life Program offers a unique Continuing Care Program to provide ongoing support for the sister for a minimum of two years. The goal of the Continuing Care Program is to assist the woman religious as she returns to life in her community/congregation.
