Women and Family Intervention Services (WFIS)

The bond between parent and child is a powerful one. The dreams people have for their families represent a life-long commitment that requires parents to lead healthy lifestyles. The goal of WFIS is to provide services that support the health, safety, well-being, and recovery of parents with substance-use disorders.

WFIS uses care management to support life changes and recovery. Care managers help clients remove barriers to a substance-free life and assist families in remaining intact, productive, and healthy. The program is grounded in evidence-based practices to holistically support families. Within a trauma-informed, strength-based and gender-responsive framework, we address substance use disorders as well as the environmental and social issues that affect a family.

WFIS includes three Recovery Oriented System of Care (ROSC) components:

Family Intervention Services (FIS) which provides the tools for parents to develop substance-free lifestyles and strong family relationships;

Women’s Intervention Services & Education (WISE) which assists pregnant and parenting women to ensure healthy moms, babies, and children;

WISE Substance Exposed Newborn/Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (WISE-SEN) which supports families experiencing, or at risk for, SEN/NAS.
