About Parent Child Assistance Program (PCAP)
Maternal alcohol/drug abuse puts children at risk because of possible effects of prenatal exposure on the child’s health and because these mothers are likely to provide a compromised home environment. These problems are preventable by helping the mothers build healthy and independent lives.
The Parent-Child Assistance Program (PCAP) is an award winning, evidence-informed home visitation case-management model for pregnant and parenting women with substance use disorders. PCAP goals are to help mothers build healthy families and prevent future births of children exposed prenatally to alcohol and drugs.
