Register for the Next Round of Focus on Families

The next round of Focus on Families at BCI begins Monday June 22, from 11 AM to 12 Noon at 2713 Lancaster Avenue. Group takes place Mondays and Thursdays from 11 AM to 12 Noon. Graduation will be Thursday October 29, 2009.

BCI prevention programs increase protective factors for youth, educate parents and children about alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs, and increase the perception of danger of drug use.
Focus on Families is a science-based intervention for families in which parents are addicted to drugs or alcohol.
  • Parents and children attend group counseling and receive case management aimed at reducing parents' illegal drug use and children's risk factors.
  • Individual case management by our Prevention Specialist reinforces the skills learned and applies them to the home environment. Children practice the skills with their parents.
    Session topics include family goal setting, relapse prevention, family communication skills, and helping children succeed in school.
  • Upon completion of the 16 week program, participants graduate and receive a certificate.
  • Focus on Families is free and you do not have to be a BCI client. For more information or to sign up, please contact Jackie Akins at 656-2348, ext. 118.
