Nurturing Program for Families in Substance Use Recovery
Many of the people enrolling in our parenting programs in recent times struggle with addiction as well as the effects of trauma and adverse childhood experiences (75-80%). With so many parents and caregivers presenting with substance use issues, we will offer Nurturing Parenting Programs for Families in Substance Use Recovery targeted at families with young children. This is an evidence-based parenting and life skills training program which we will offer to parents with young children who are in recovery. Studies over the years show that the program is very effective at preventing child abuse, improving family functioning and parental resilience, and helping provide benefits in the realm of socio-emotional functioning in children.
