ETHOS Launches Group for Women Experiencing Trauma and Suffering from Substance Use Disorder


WEST CHESTER, PA — ETHOS Treatment, LLC, which helps adults and teens with mental health issues and substance use disorders through a proven combination of individual counseling, small group, and family therapy, is now offering an in-person and telehealth hybrid group for adult women who struggle with trauma and substance use disorder.

“This group will help participants identify with other women and their experiences as we tackle the complications of trauma and its effects in early recovery,” explains Cait Kish, the clinician leading the group. Kish is a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP), a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), and a Board-Certified Music Therapist (MT-BC) with more than a decade of experience in mental health and substance use disorder healing.

In addition to an eclectic mix of therapies, Kish utilizes humor, compassion, mindfulness, music, and psychoeducation to help clients shed old patterns and beliefs that no longer serve while building new supports and insights.

The Women’s Trauma Group is a Daytime Intensive Outpatient Program that meets three times per week at ETHOS’s outpatient treatment clinic in West Chester. Clients typically participate for six to eight weeks.

The ETHOS-proven model of individual counseling, small group, and family therapy for the treatment of substance use disorders in adults maximizes the potential for long-term, sustainable recovery. ETHOS also helps people with clinical depression, bipolar disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and mood regulation issues.

In addition to the Women’s Trauma Group, ETHOS offers groups specifically for first responders, men who have experienced trauma, individuals struggling with alcohol, those with gambling disorder issues, as well as a new LGBTQIA+ Inclusive Group.

ETHOS’s outpatient treatment centers are located in Philadelphia, Plymouth Meeting, Collegeville, Broomall, Jenkintown, West Chester, and Wyomissing.
