Ways to Give
You can Click Below, and make a gift in many ways to Casa Serena:
Studies have shown that the time period between the onset of alcohol-related problems and entry into treatment for alcohol dependency or alcoholism is shorter for women than for men. Women also experience greater physiological impairment than men earlier in their careers, even though they consume less alcohol than men. Consequences associated with heavy drinking may also be accelerated in women.
Other research shows that women’s drinking tends to resemble that of their partners, siblings and close friends. Younger women, aged 18 to 34, have increased risks of alcohol-related problems than older women. Women in the age range of 35 to 39, however, have higher incidences of alcohol dependence.
The length of treatment is directly related to relapse rate: more than 80% of people who only go through short-term treatment programs are prone to relapse, while less than 30% who complete a one-year program experience relapse.
In California, over 55% of women treated in residential recovery programs like Casa Serena were supporting themselves and their children, with no government assistance, one year after treatment.
Women pay what they can, but over 70% need some sort of financial assistance. What clients can’t pay must be supported through scholarship funds. Because of the economy and government funding cuts, Casa Serena’s Scholarship Fund provides the majority of support. Scholarship funds support the critical services that allow women to receive treatment for their addiction.
Casa Serena receives very limited government support. Your contribution can make a life changing difference for women struggling with the diseases of alcoholism and drug addiction.
