Families in Recovery Succeeding Together

Also known as Arizona Families FIRST, is a program with Terros Health to help families involved with the Department of Child Safety (DCS) who are experiencing substance use. This specialized service partners with DCS to help parents as they go through the addiction recovery process. Parents who complete this program achieved reunification with their children nearly 80% of the time versus those who didn’t complete the program.

We now provide support services by our certified Doula Coaches

 

Expecting parents enrolled in our Arizona Families FIRST program can now request a Doula. A Doula is a trained companion who supports another individual through a significant health-related experience, such as childbirth. A Doula may also provide support to the client’s partner, family, and friends. The doula’s goal, and role, is to help the client feel safe and comfortable, complementing the role of the healthcare professionals who provide the client’s medical care. Our certified doulas at Terros Health have lived experience in recovery and as parents and graduates of the Families FIRST program.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to do first?

In order to get started, you must have a referral from the Department of Child Safety (DCS). Once the referral has been received, the Outreach Department will contact you within 24 hours. If you have not received a call within 24 hours, please call the Outreach Specialist team at 602-685-6058 (Phoenix) or 520-320-0800 (Tucson) and we will help you schedule an appointment for your one-and-a-half-hour substance use assessment. You will meet with a clinician to discuss how DCS became involved with your family, how substance use has affected your family life, and concerns you may have. Along with your input, the clinician will determine what level of treatment fits your needs.

What’s expected of me next?

You will have the opportunity to attend a combination of group, individual, and family counseling. Talk with your Arizona Families FIRST Outreach Specialist to participate in services until your scheduled appointment. This is an important part of your recovery process.

How long is this program?

The length and frequency of your treatment program will depend on your needs and the achievement of your goals. The program gives you the chance to have honest conversations with others going through similar challenges in a non-judgmental setting. You will be encouraged and supported to make positive changes.
Throughout your time in the program, you will be able to participate in drug screens. This is one of the best ways to demonstrate to your DCS case worker you are making the changes needed to reunify with your child(ren).
