The Intensive Family Centered Care Program (IFCC) provides free in-home parenting and family counseling to families and children that have a relevant future risk and/or history of substance use. The program lasts for 10-12 weeks and is offered in-home or office. The IFCC program utilizes an evidence-based and internationally recognized parenting and family strengthening curriculum developed for high-risk and general population families called Strengthening Families. The Strengthening Families Program (SFP) has been found to significantly improve parenting skills and family relationships, reduce problem behaviors, delinquency and alcohol and drug abuse in children and is also found to improve social competencies and school performance. Parents and children participate in SFP, both separately and together.
The Intensive Family Centered Care Program’s (IFCC) goal is to help families find solutions to a full range of personal concerns. These can include; crisis Intervention/reduction, parenting issues/skills, marital & family problems, emotional concerns for each family member, relationship issues, alcohol & drug problems, life adjustment, and mental health care.
