ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The Family Preservation Program of CFC Loud N Clear will focus on building a recovery conscious family unit, healing each individual family member, and empowering the entire family unit in a unique, realistic, and interesting way.  This program will encompass and involve the entire family by providing recovery sensitive resources, education and activities for both individual growth and family growth.  Our mission is to support each family battling addiction with kindness, care, compassion and empathy.  This program will strive to relieve stigma and shame commonly associated with addiction and mental health, and will simultaneously educate, heal and strengthen the family unit. In turn, this will create stronger neighborhoods and healthy productive communities.
