Abstract

The MAP of the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Medical Center/Highland PArk Pavilion is a comperehensive inpatient and outpatient chemical dependency rehabilitation program that serves mostly lower socioeconomic, African-American perinatal substances-abusing women. The multidisciplinary treatment team incorporates a broad spectrum of group and individual therapeutic modalities, including 12-step, psychoeducational, and RP components. Within MAP programs, significant attention is given to issues and experiences that are unique to this population and that must be addressed if rehabilitation is to be successful. These topics include, but are not limited to, physical, emotional and sexual abuse, empowerment, family and parenting concerns, and HIV prevention and coping skills for HIV-seropositive women.
