Parent/Child Assistance Program (PCAP)
This program was designed by the University of Washington. The focus of this program is to provide one-on-one Case Management supports for chemically dependent mothers for a up to three years for each client. This is a unique, non-judgmental program with a focus on maintaining a clean and sober life and lessening the numbers of children that are born chemically exposed or damaged.
The client must be chemically dependent, currently pregnant or have a child 12 months or under, and qualify for Medicaid. Each client is assigned a Case Manager, who works with the client in an effort to maintain a clean and sober life, assisting the client in locating needed services and is able to attend any meetings, medical appointments, or court appointments with the client.
There is no cost for this service and it is completely client-driven.
Parenting Instruction/Parent Coaching
Working with clients, and using a variety of techniques, we strive to guide the parents in learning to communicate and work with their children in creating healthier, long-term relationships.
We serve the Department of Developmental Disabilities, Children in Need of Intensive In-Home Behavioral Services (CIIBS),and involved parents and the community at large.
Parent Coaching is only provided in the one-on-one setting as that involves the parent(s) and child(ren). This structure provides for focused and confidential work and the opportunity for the parent(s) to experience guidance, while engaging with the child(ren) in a safe environment.
We provide supervised visitation for families involved in custody disputes or high-risk issues. This service is provided by a team of individuals who have passed criminal background checks and are fully trained in boundary setting, case-related confidentiality, risk prevention and thorough documentation. Our team receives on-going training in regards to safety issues, drug and alcohol awareness, and it is this training that makes us superior providers.
Visitation between parent and child is paramount in the continuation and development of the relationship. It is this relationship that is created during the child’s formative years that supports and carries the individual well into adulthood.
There are times when there are safety issues whether the child is medically fragile and the parent has difficulty with the necessary care for the child, or there are at-risk behaviors on the part of the parent that make supervision necessary.
Our teams of Supervisors understand these issues and the concerns related. Supervision services, while at times uncomfortable for all involved, are provided with empathy and respect.
You will be asked to complete an intake packet and provide a copy of your Parenting Plan or visitation order written by the courts and any no-contact orders that are current and apply to the family.
We provide supportive services for youth and adults in areas such as behavioral modification with the youth and personal counseling for both youth and adults.
Using the Anger Busting Workbook, written by James A. Barker, the client learns "Simple, powerful techniques for managing anger and saving relationships". This is a 9 week course, focusing on the core issues of anger, with the student learning to:
- Put on the brakes
- A check-up from the neck-up
- Put a sock in it (Really!)
