A Message from the Director, Mary Painter LCSW, LADC

The Office of Intimate Partner Violence and Substance Use Treatment and Recovery sits within the Division of Clinical and Community Consultation and Support.  DCF has the statutory authority for providing an integrated system of services and supports for children and adolescents with substance use and mental health disorders. DCF funded Substance Use Services are designed to offer children, youth, caregivers and their families a range of services for mental health, psychiatric, and substance use disorders that are grounded in best practice and evidence.   These services are provided in the home or community, often preventing the need for more intensive or restrictive care such as hospital, residential, or group home services.  The adolescent substance use service array is available to all families in the community and do not require DCF involvement.    

It is our hope you find this information useful.  It contains a range of material from where services are available, service descriptors and other additional resources.   

 

About Us

The Office of Intimate Partner Violence and Substance Use Treatment and Recovery supports DCF's mission of "healthy, safe, smart and strong" families by providing a recovery-oriented system of care to all children in Connecticut and DCF involved parents/caregivers experiencing difficulties with substance misuse.  Our objective is to provide a recovery-oriented system of care designed to:

  • Prevent the negative impact of addiction;
  • Promote health, wellness and resiliency for our children, families, and community at large;
  • Intervene and support children and caregivers who need services to recover from addiction related problems; and
  • Sustain recovery for children, adults and families by providing recovery supports, recognition that recovery is possible, and the elimination of stigma in our communities.

Our substance use treatment services are:

  • culturally informed;
  • engaging, empowering, and strengths-based;
  • trauma-informed and gender responsive; 
  • developmentally appropriate;
  • community-based;
  • family driven/centered and child/youth guided;
  • evidence-based, flexible, and innovative; and
  • seamless, comprehensive, integrated, and coordinated.
