The Odyssey House Parent’s Programming began almost 14 years ago with the opening of the Mother’s with Children Program in response to the growing number of addicted mothers with young children. Odyssey House has a strong history of effectively treating adults with addiction but children’s needs are highly unique, requiring a different set of interventions and skilled clinicians. This prompted the development of the Children's Services Center. Together these programs offer substance abuse treatment for the parent, parenting and family skills training, and therapeutic interventions for the children. The hallmark of these services is the ability to keep families together in a safe environment, giving them the time to heal and embark upon a new and healthy life together.
