Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to implement an adaptation of the Strengthening Families Program which includes recreational outings at the Shields for Families Genesis facility for recovering mothers and their children to foster emotional bonds. An intensive literature review was performed in order to analyze the effects of maternal substance use on the home environment, mother-child relationships, and child behavior. Additionally, research on the effectiveness of current interventions, research available to support the inclusion of leisure or recreation, and programs that utilize leisure or recreation are also discussed. A search for potential funding sources was also performed. During this search, The Ralph M. Parsons Foundation was identified as the best source for funding because the proposed project meets the goals, objectives, and foundations priorities.
