Family Centered Substance Abuse Treatment Grants

    The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) will award $3.8 million in grants under the Family Centered Substance Abuse Treatment Grants for Adolescents and their Families program.

    “The purpose of this program is to provide substance-abuse services to adolescents, their families/primary caregivers and older transition-age youth and where appropriate, any significant others/mentors or other appropriate adults,” according to the SAMHSA grant announcement.

    “Grantees will implement evidence-based practices, specifically the Adolescent Community Reinforcement Approach (A-CRA) coupled with Assertive Continuing Care (ACC), that are context-specific focusing on the interaction between youth and their environments, family centered and community-based.”

    A total of 13 grants of up to $300,000 will be awarded to nonprofits, government agencies, schools and others. Grantees will also receive training on using the A-CRA/ACC model.

    Application deadline is April 24. For full details, see the grant announcement online.
