Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goals are to:
1. provide a safe living environment where mothers remain united with their children while receiving professional services and support to break the cycle of addiction and be the mother their child needs
2. provide their children with professional services and support to achieve their physical and emotional development goals and successfully bond with their mother

Parisi House provides a residential treatment facility for low-income drug and alcohol addicted pregnant and parenting mothers and their children age 5 and under.

Each mother develops a treatment plan in partnership with a counselor trained in alcohol and other drug addiction to work with her to support her recovery. We provide group sessions in the areas of aftercare, anger management, co-dependency, family violence, healthy family dynamics when one or both parents are addicts, healthy minds, literacy (for both mother and child), meal planning and preparation, mother/child bonding, nutrition, parenting, physical exercise, recovery, relapse prevention, and seeking safety.

Mother and child are also partnered with a staff member trained in child development who develops a care plan for the child. This begins with staff administering the Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ) and the ASQ-Social Emotional Questionnaires at the beginning of the child's time with us and is administered again every three months.

Parisi House partners with a number of local community organizations that provide additional services to the women and their children both on and off site.

Our Program Director is a Licensed Advanced Alcohol Drug Counselor with extensive experience in residential drug and alcohol treatment. Our Clinical Supervisor is a Licensed Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor and an Internationally Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor. Our Counselors are either pre-licensed therapists or certified counselors through the California Consortium of Addiction Programs and Professionals. Our Child Development staff have at least 12 units of child development education. Half of the Child Development team have their Certificate of Achievement in Child Development. Some of our staff are in recovery themselves, so they understand the challenges our mothers face. We partner with many community organizations that provide additional services to our women and their children.

We are happy to report that the treatment completion rate of our clients is 14% higher than the other residential facilities in our area. Two years and 5 years post-treatment are milestones in the recovery field. Once we have reached these time markers with the clients we are currently tracking, we'll have a much better sense of whether our current interventions produce long-term results.
