The Women of Worth (WOW) program is a comprehensive, trauma-informed alcohol and other drug program for women and their families living in the Wisconsin counties of Racine and Kenosha. The WOW program is based on Family-Centered Treatment and has received support from the Wisconsin Partnership Program, first with a demonstration grant (2012-2013) and then an implementation grant (2014-2017). Investigators and staff from the Center for Urban Population Health, a partnership of Aurora Health Care, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, have served as project evaluators. Based on the implementation science framework of Proctor and colleagues, which includes implementation, service, and client/patient outcomes, we will present client outcomes and project implications for other, similar programs across the state and nationally.
