The Treatment Team consists of a Certified Family Nurse Practitioner and Maternal Fetal Medicine Physicians, Masters prepared clinical counselors, Registered Nurses, consulting Psychiatrist/Addictionologist, Mental Health Techs and support staff.

Providing such comprehensive services to address the special needs of this population significantly improves the quality of life for women, their children and the entire family. Services begin in pregnancy and continue post-partum. Literature supports the fact that women with substance use disorders often have a constellation of medical and psychosocial risk factors and that they benefit the greatest from programs such as Milagro. Pregnancy is often a window of opportunity to engage this population in accessing care.
As a perinatal substance abuse prevention and treatment program, Milagro provides an array of specialized services to pregnant and postpartum women with current and/or past history of alcohol and/or other drugs. The Milagro program provides gender sensitive, comprehensive care through its outpatient clinic setting and its residential treatment center, known as Casita de Milagros.
