Mothers addicted to drugs or alcohol face an uphill battle when searching for treatment for their disease. The purpose of the Rebecca Project's Family Treatment Initiative is to create a national voice for public policy for low-income families with addiction issues and to advance support of family treatment programs. The purpose of this project, proposed by the Rebecca Project for Human Rights, a legal and advocacy organization for low-income families, is to organize parent advocates to train parents in need of recovery and treatment providers who use family-appropriate practices to be advocates for better quality addiction treatment services.
