Chemical Health and Recovery Grants
The Chemical Health and Recovery Grant program provides funding to support pregnant and parenting women in recovery. The goal is to reduce substance abuse among women in treatment and recovery through culturally, gender-specific, comprehensive and coordinated case management services. Programs are most successful when they meet participants’ basic needs, stabilize their family situation, improve their involvement in pre-treatment, treatment support, and post-treatment recovery activities in order to maintain optimal health.
