In the 1990s, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration provided grants to create family-centered, residential substance use disorder treatment programs that allowed children to reside with their parents. This 2004 case study looks at the Families in Transitions program that was created at The Villages in Florida. It provides an overview of the programs treatment philosophy and services for parents and children and may provide guidance to policy makers, local leaders and treatment providers interested in establishing such programs in their communities.
