Parent-Child Assistance Program (PCAP) Target Population

PCAP targets women who self-report heavy alcohol or drug abuse during pregnancy and are ineffectively engaged with community service providers. Women are enrolled during pregnancy or up to six months postpartum. PCAP is also available to the birth mothers of children diagnosed with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder, who continue to abuse substances, and are capable of bearing children. For the purposes of the HomVEE review, this profile is based on developer recommendations and studies of programs that enroll women prenatally or within six months postpartum.
