Our Child Protection Substance Abuse Initiative's top priority is the safety and well-being of children. By treating the alcohol/drug problems of the caregivers, we help provide a more secure environment for children.
The program is a collaboration between Center For Family Services and DCP&P. Our certified alcohol and drug counselors conduct evaluations on parents and caregivers who are suspected of having substance abuse problems, and when necessary make treatment referrals for them. Aides provide clients with transportation, communication access to assessment appointments, and case management.
We offer this program in the following counties: Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester, Salem. CPSAI staff are housed onsite in each DCP&P district office.
Individuals involved in CPSAI are also eligible for Peer Recovery Support services.
