Family-Based Recovery ensures that children develop optimally in drug-free, safe and stable homes with their parent(s).
Integrating in-home, attachment-based parent-child therapy and substance abuse treatment, Family-Based Recovery minimizes children’s risk of abuse and/or neglect, poor developmental outcomes and/or removal due to parental substance abuse.
Treatment includes 3 in-home visits per week, 2 that target parental sobriety and psychological wellbeing and 1 with the parent and child to strengthen bonding and promote the child’s healthy development. Group meetings with parents who are struggling with similar issues are also offered.
Case management services help parents identify basic needs and connects them with support services, such as housing assistance, access to transportation and health insurance.
Assessments, intervention and advocacy are available for children, as well as psychiatric evaluation for parents and medication management as needed.
Staff are accessible 24/7 via an on-call system to assist in developing safety plans when clients are in crisis or at high risk of relapse.
Family-Based Recovery is available through referral from Connecticut Department of Children and Families (DCF).
Parents who have reported substance use within the last 30 days, who have children ages 0-36 months living at home and reside in the DCF Manchester region (which includes 26 towns) are eligible for the program.
