Exeter Residential Program for Women



A safe, welcoming center where women work toward independence and build the foundation for a brighter future.

Located on a peaceful rural campus in southern Rhode Island, the Ottmar Residential Program provides gender-specific drug and alcohol addiction treatment for women in a physically and psychologically safe environment with the goal of helping women develop trust, self-esteem, and personal responsibility. Treatment includes group counseling; life-skills training; education on substance use disorder effects, relapse prevention skills; and participation in Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, and other appropriate self-help groups. Phoenix House also offers individualized aftercare plans, which are essential in establishing long-term recovery.



The Ottmar Residential Program serves Rhode Island women who need residential treatment for substance use disorder, including those with co-occurring mental health issues.  Length of stay is determined by individual assessment and progress toward clinical goals, but averages about 28 days.  Most insurances are accepted, including commercial and Medicaid Expansion insurances.  Funds may be available for patients who have no insurance coverage or insurance that is not accepted by the program.

The Ottmar Residential Program for Women is accredited by CARF, a nationally recognized standard of excellence.
