The bond between mother and child is a powerful relationship. The dreams people have for their families represent a life-long commitment that requires parents to lead healthy lifestyles.
It is easy to let alcohol and other drugs stop parents from being the best that they can be for their children.
We provide several services for current and expectant mothers and their families to ensure the safety of the children and make sure the family remains unified.
Women and Family Intervention Services (WFIS) uses intense case management to support life changes and recovery. Case managers help clients remove the barriers to a drug-free life and assist families to remain intact, productive and healthy.
Women’s Intervention Services & Education (WISE) targets pregnant women to ensure babies are born healthy and drug-free. Services include:
- Intervention and referral to treatment
- Referral and coordination of prenatal care
- Relapse prevention skill-building and support
Family Intervention Services (FIS) provides the tools for parents to develop substance-free lifestyles and strong family relationships.
