Assisting families impacted by substance use disorders
Through a grant from Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, the Erie County Family Treatment Court, in conjunction with BestSelf Behavioral Health, is able to provide enhanced services to individuals with substance use disorders and their families.
The BestSelf Family Connections Team works in collaboration with the supervising judge to create a person-centered, goal-oriented care plan for individuals and their loved ones. The goal is to address the needs of the whole family through comprehensive clinical assessments to identify risks and needs with reduced recidivism and eventual family reunification as overreaching goals.
• Addresses the needs of the whole family
• Provides rapid connection to Medication Assisted Treatment, if applicable
• Supports recovery with linkages to treatment, counseling, peers and other services
• Includes participation in Celebrating Families!™, an evidence-base program for families impacted by substance use disorders

Celebrating Families!™ engages all family members, addressing addiction, recovery and living skills in every session. It works to strengthen recovery, and improve family relationships.
