Prototypes – Achieving Recovery through Coordinated Care


Project ARCC, (Achieving Recovery through Coordinated Care) was funded via the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Services Grant Program for Residential Treatment for Pregnant and Postpartum Women (PPW).
Project ARCC, (Achieving Recovery through Coordinated Care) will enhance Prototype’s capacity to meet the needs of pregnant and postpartum women in Los Angeles who need residential substance abuse treatment. ARCC will support women’s successful recovery with coordinated, evidence-based services and by meeting the needs of her family network. ARCC will demonstrate how women’s recovery is improved and sustained when her family is well. 
Each year of the grant period, ARCC will serve 40 resident pregnant and postpartum women, 40 non-resident adult partner or relatives, and 68 resident and non-resident minor children. Evidence-based ARCC services for women in residential treatment and their families will include Incredible Years; Nurturing Parents; Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy; Celebrating Families!; Seeking Safety and Nurturing Parents. Trained, expert ARCC Family Navigators will coordinate and implement family-centered treatment plans.
Sustainability and expansion will be driven by information from a rigorous evaluation, including two comparison conditions and a cost study component. Evaluation information will enable project leaders and stakeholders to understand the effectiveness of Project ARCC and costs associated with its implementation, compared to services implemented as usual.
