Substance Abuse Treatment For Mothers
Children’s Home & Aid Families and Children in Treatment (FACT) is an innovative substance abuse rehabilitation program for mothers receiving services from the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS). The program addresses the specific needs of women who are chemically dependent and caring for children.
The objective of the FACT program is to help mothers achieve sobriety and to help their children become emotionally and physically secure. This program helps mothers achieve sobriety and become effective and nurturing parents through a continuum of services consisting of alcohol and drug treatment, medical and mental health assistance including trauma intervention, community referrals for domestic violence, housing education, and recovery support groups. Education and support are offered to the family throughout the mother’s involvement with the program.
The Children’s Home & Aid FACT program partners with Leyden Family Services and Mental Health through its SHARE program. SHARE works directly with FACT to provide all levels of drug treatment. It also provides client and family education and support.
The FACT program provides services to families living in the Northwest suburbs of Cook, McHenry, and northern Kane counties as well as northern DuPage County.
The FACT program is offered in the Metropolitan Chicago Region.
