Family Link Plus is designed to help families when parenting may be more challenging because of substance misuse or mental health needs. The program focuses on providing support and resources to parents and caregivers, though support for children is also available. Our intensive, youth-friendly care is especially effective in getting hard-to-reach teens connected to services and improving their relationships with family members. Supportive in-home visits are provided to help the family stay together.
Our staff provides resources and connects families to any services necessary, including supportive counseling, parenting education, domestic violence support, treatment referrals, housing, financial, and immigration support.
