EPIC Parenting Program (The Center for Alcohol and Drug Resources/CAFS)

In 12 two-hour sessions, you will learn to keep the “loving connection” from infancy, through elementary school, throughout the difficult years of adolescence, and beyond. Groups are generally made up of 8-12 people of all ages, who may be single parents or couples, and come from various backgrounds. A certificate of completion is awarded at the end of the series.

You will experience increased confidence, a more positive view of your role as a parent, greater the levels of interaction and improved relationships with your children, and gain a set of skills to use as your children grow. Your children will become better prepared for school and personal success.
