Spencer, Ind.—Centerstone is pleased to announce the approval of a $20,000 grant from Boston Scientific Foundation to support a new program, “Families in Recovery,” in Owen County. The 2010 pilot program, “Families in Recovery,” will teach life skills to parents, children and families where one parent is recovering from an alcohol or drug addiction. Working closely with Owen County Schools and the Owen County Department of Children Services to identify families for referral to the program, Centerstone will use evidence-based practice and a highly acclaimed strengthening families model to restore or initiate positive family interaction, provide education about addictions, improve communications and offer life-skills training to reunite families and build a foundation of stronger families in Owen County.
“We are proud to support Centerstone’s important work helping to educate and support Owen County’s families impacted by addiction. The Centerstone “Families in Recovery” program helps fulfill the Boston Scientific Foundation’s primary goals of promoting health and education and empowering people in the communities where our employees live and work,” said Jacqueline Boas, Foundation Administrator.
