Families Supporting Recovery gets $5,000 grant

FSGC’s Families Supporting Recovery Program received the award to implement a new family component to the program.

“We are so appreciative of this support,” Brandon Fiagle, LMSW, Program Coordinator for Families Supporting Recovery, said. “This will help us better assist teens and their families in understanding both mental health and substance use and how to better work together to sustain recovery.”

The new component is called Kansas Partnership of Families (KPF). KPF is not therapy but rather a treatment and recovery program. It treats youth ages 12-18 who are suffering from mental health issues and substance use disorders concurrently. This treatment model has proven effective with adults, and now FSGC is piloting it for adolescents.
