SAMHSA Accepting Grant Applications for $7.87 Million to Cover Residential Treatment for Pregnant and Postpartum Women Program
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration is soliciting applications for grants that will expand the availability of comprehensive, high-quality, residential treatment, recovery support, and family services for pregnant and postpartum women who suffer from alcohol and other drug problems, and their minor children who have been impacted by perinatal and environmental effects of maternal substance use and abuse. It is expected that $7.87 million will be available to fund up to 16 grants for up to three years.
Since 1992, this program has evolved from a core program that addresses the needs of women and their minor children to include the treatment needs of the whole family. This family-centered treatment approach builds on the strength and resources of the entire family, supports sustained recovery for individual family members, and improves overall family functioning.
Residential treatment programs must offer women and their minor children organized substance abuse treatment services that feature a planned regimen of care in a safe 24-hour residential setting with staff supervision. Any off-site treatment services must be well coordinated and integrated to ensure that specific aspects of the individual’s treatment plan and services for her children can be addressed in both facilities. When minor children cannot reside in the treatment facility with their mother, and there are no other current living arrangements available, alternative safe and appropriate accommodations for the children must be arranged in consultation with the mother. It is also important that these children receive required interventions and services and are actively engaged in the treatment process with their mothers.
