Casa Mia, a partnership between Crosspoint and the UT Health San Antonio School of Nursing (SON), opened in late December 2018 and is currently funded by the Texas Department of State Health Services, the Baptist Health Foundation, and the Sisters of the Holy Spirit. This innovative care model fulfills an essential need in Texas by providing transitional residential programming in the beautiful 4500 square foot Pryor House in the historic Monte Vista neighborhood.
Casa Mia focuses specifically on women with opioid use disorder who are pregnant and/or parenting and welcomes their young children to accompany them. This program relies on the proven Crosspoint model of transitional residential services to provide recovery housing while women access needed outpatient treatment services. The SON brings to Casa Mia its extensive expertise in women’s health, child growth and development, nutrition, and program evaluation. Further, unlike most recovery housing, Casa Mia welcomes women who have chosen a variety of pathways to recovery including medication assisted treatment.
