The Parent-Child Assistance Program (PCAP) is an
evidence-based home visitation case-management model for mothers who
abuse alcohol or drugs during pregnancy. Its goals are to help
mothers build healthy families and prevent future births of children
exposed prenatally to alcohol and drugs.



The PCAP Approach

Pregnant and
parenting women are enrolled in PCAP for 3 years.
PCAP forms partnerships with and between clients and families and
community service providers.
