Training parents in recovery to advocate for improved treatment option policies for low-income families
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.
