Making Imperfect Life, Perfect

Published on December 1, 2020-

Carla and Eric Savath each faced challenges while struggling for years with their addictions. Carla came to Willamette Family for the first time in 2014 where she completed the programs, but relapsed shortly after leaving. After Eric saw Carla’s life changes and her work to gain a more positive life after going through Willamette Family’s treatment programs, he decided to try for his own life of recovery. He was not aware that a life of recovery was even possible...

Above is their story.

The Lund Report

Meet Chelsea:

A "picture-perfect" life...that's how Chelsea described the first 8 years of her life with her family - she was living in a house with mom, dad, and sisters. She had a "normal" family upbringing until her mom fell back into her disease of addiction, and suddenly Chelsea's world was drastically changed. Her once perfect and typical childhood became rocky and unstable. Trauma, abuse and neglect became part of her daily struggles. Chelsea's adolescent year were guided and shaped by instability, chaos, and pain. (Click here to see her story)

Willamette Family MediaSuccess Story:

Meet Graham, Jennifer & Kaycee
...their story is just one of many waiting to be told.

Published on November 27, 2017

The Child Development Center (CDC) allows parents to attend substance abuse treatment and mental health services while their child/ children receive therapeutic services in the CDC. The CDC teachers help children learn how to walk, talk, write, count, interact with other children, and much more. Many of the children who attend the center have been born affected by prenatal substance use, and/or have experienced abuse and/or neglect in their past. The teachers are trauma-informed and work hard to provide a therapeutic environment for all of the children.

Kaycee was cared for at the Child Development Center (CDC) while Jennifer and Graham were in treatment. Her mother Jennifer was receiving treatment through the Women’s Residence Program and her father Graham was receiving treatment through the Dad’s Program. Both of those programs help clients to manage their recovery, while allowing them to be active parents in their children’s lives and spend time parenting their children. 

Without Willamette Family’s Child Development Center, many children would be separated from their parent and placed in foster care. The CDC gives parents and children the ability to remain together in a safe and well monitored environment.
