Includes Women's Curriculum, Children's Curriculum, Materials and video Facilitator's Presentation. The Recovering Together Program (RTP) is a program that treats families (mothers and their children) in which the mothers are receiving substance abuse services and the family is receiving child welfare services. It is a is a year-long therapeutic and educational program for mothers and their children, serving mothers who need help with both child maltreatment and substance abuse issues. Staffed by a multi-disciplinary team, RTP uses culturally appropriate and theory-driven treatment methods that are creatively designed for women and children's special needs. The RTP design includes advocacy and case management services for families. These approaches were selected based on a literature review completed before the initial design of the RTP program and continued throughout the 3 years of field testing, formative evaluation, and modifications of the original model.
