Program for Families Affected by Substance Use (FBR)

Family-Based Recovery (FBR) provides in-home attachment-based parent-child therapy and contingency management substance abuse treatment.  The mission of FBR is to ensure that substance affected children develop optimally in drug-free, safe and stable homes with their parent(s).  FBR treats mothers and fathers who are actively using substances or who have recent history of substance abuse that are also parenting a child under the age of 8.  Services are provided by a team of two clinicians and a family support specialist.  The team provides individual, couples and family therapy; promotes positive parent-child interaction for secure attachment; works to increase a parent's awareness and understanding of child development; provides case management services and conducts weekly relapse prevention and parenting group.  The program is funded by the State of Connecticut Department of Children and Families.
