Celebrating Families™


A new evidence-based prevention program for families affected by substance abuse

In order to broaden its reach across the country, Celebrating Families™! was transferred to the National Association for Children of Alcoholics (NACoA) on May 1, 2007. For information on the model please see the new program specific website: www.celebratingfamilies.net

Celebrating Families!™ was developed in Santa Clara County, CA, under the leadership of PPI in partnership with Santa Clara County's Model Family Treatment Drug Court and Dept. of Social Services, implementation costs supported by a SAMHSA grant. The program has been replicated in numerous settings including treatment facilities, social services, and community-based organizations. California replication sites include: all courts in Santa Clara County, CA (in collaboration with First 5 of Santa Clara County), El Dorado, Kern, King, and Yuba/Sutter counties. Replication sites in other states include: Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Idaho, and Indiana. According to our records, more than 1,000 families will receive CF! services in 2007.

PPI continues to provide project leadership and oversight in Santa Clara County, CA, for implementation and evaluation of Celebrating Families™! focusing on preschoolers and their families. Sites involved in this study include: EMQ-Addiction Prevention Services, ARH-Parisi House On the Hill, and Friends Outside.

Several current leaders and trainers for Celebrating Families™! continue to provide services for existing sites and participate with NACoA in training.
