Every year, St. Monica's helps hundreds of women build healthy new futures for themselves and their families. St. Monica's is Lincoln's only substance abuse treatment center dedicated solely to serving women. Treatment plans unique to each woman address the role trauma such as domestic violence, homelessness and sexual assault play in her addiction, while encouraging empowerment and recovery. 

Our Project Mother & Child residence is Lincoln's only where women can bring their children to live with them while they go through treatment, with services available through our Early Childhood Care Center. By offering services not only to our clients but to their family members as well, we help break the cycle of addiction and promote healing.  

Since 1964, St. Monica's has provided these services regardless of a woman's ability to pay. Your generosity plays a critical role in supporting these women as they recover from substance abuse and develop resilience, strength and hope for the future. Thank you for supporting the women and families of St. Monica's! 

50+ Years of stories

“My life was centered around drugs. The getting and using consumed every waking moment. I was abused daily, and I didn’t believe that this world had anything positive to offer. I was beyond hopeless. I was scared, angry and alone. At St. Monica’s I learned that I was a good person making poor choices and that I had the power to change. I worked on my parenting, I became financially responsible, and I listened. I listened to the women who had come before me and were making it. Today, I have hope. Life is not about drugs, it’s about doing the next right thing. St. Monica’s was exactly what I needed, when I needed it. I am now enjoying life with my daughter, who is doing great!”
