Implementing Fatherhood-Focused Interventions in SUD Treatment
from Counselor Magazine
Within residential treatment programs for substance use disorders (SUDs), there are many men who are fathers. Programs often do not focus on fatherhood or parenting as part of residential treatment programs, though there have been some successful outcomes for residential programs for women that incorporate motherhood-focused services (Niccols et al., 2012), including parenting interventions and family work with their children. Mothers have been positive about these coordinated programs, but programs have typically not incorporated parenting programming or family-focused treatment as part of residential treatment programs for men.
