Do you have a separate program for women?

Our program accepts both men and women; we do not have a separate program for women. If you would like to discuss a referral of a woman religious to Saint Luke Consultation Center, please call our director, Dr. Rob Furey, at 314-909-4620.

 

Our partner, Saint Luke Institute, offers a residential program for women only, Talitha-Life. Women have separate living and recreational areas, and most therapy is with women only, although larger therapy groups typically include men and women, as do meals and liturgies. For details, call SLI at

301-445-7970.

Do you accept non-Catholics for evaluations or treatment?

Our treatment programs are primarily for Catholic clergy and religious. On some occasions we may serve a minister of another faith, more commonly for evaluation and, at times when appropriate, for intensive outpatient treatment.

Why intensive outpatient care?

Intensive outpatient care offers a cost effective treatment option that provides the structure, intensity and support for a client to do deep work, while at the same time allowing the opportunity to practice new found skills in an outside setting. Learn more here or call us at 314-909-4620.

Why is continuing care important?

Clients consistently underestimate the challenges of transitioning from an intensive treatment program to what comes next in their life. Our continuing care program offers a community of care to assist with the challenges of this transition. Learn more.
