SHAWL accepts self-pay based on a pre-determined sliding scale that is based on income. For residents who do not have income and do not have the ability to pay, SHAWL can be a recipient of Board & Care payments through the General Relief Program which is reserved for homeless, indigent people in the County of Los Angeles.


What to Expect Upon Entering SHAWL’s Primary Program

SHAWL’s highly structured program consists of intensive case management and individual counseling with wrap-around supportive services. Residents are provided weekly counseling and case management to assist with their recovery efforts. With the support of our counselors, each resident sets her own goals, develops her own timetable and own measurements of success. The case management plan covers all aspects of the resident’s life including but not limited to addiction, domestic violence, legal situation, education, health issues and family issues. Emotional issues, mental health diagnosis and other personal issues are incorporated into the case management plan as well. In addition, all residents make a commitment to work with an AA or NA sponsor and have a weekly meeting with the sponsor of their choice. Guidelines are set by SHAWL to ensure that residents stay focused on their program and are made accountable for the work that is done with their sponsor.
