Parenting is not an easy job. EPIC offers free parenting programs that provide support, information and education for parents/guardians. Parents are most effective in preventing their children from engaging in dangerous behaviors when they are trained and motivated.
Parenting Education Programs include:
Parent to Parent: Provides parents with the knowledge and skills needed to assist them in keeping their kids from getting involved with alcohol or other drugs.
Active Parenting Program: Reduces family conflict and child behavior problems by improving parenting skills, enhancing family communication and increasing supervision and discipline. Two levels: one for parents of young children and one for parents of teens.
Alcoholism and drug addiction affects the whole family. One family member addicted to alcohol and drugs means the whole family suffers. Without help, active addictions can completely disrupt normal family life and cause harmful effects that can last a lifetime. But, with the proper help and support, family recovery can become your reality. To help a family rebuild, we offer a variety of support, information and skills regarding: Living with an Addiction, Triggers and Cravings, Rebuilding Trust, Communication Traps, Coping with Possibility of a Relapse, and the Roadmap to Recovery

If you or someone you know is in crisis, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK or to text “Talk” to 741741.
EPIC provides Question, Persuade Refer (QPR) Gatekeeper Training. Gatekeepers are those citizens in every community who, because of their contact with those at risk for suicide, are often in the best position to identify and refer people thinking about suicide. QPR Gatekeeper Training does not train people to be counselors, it trains people to detect persons who are in the thinking or ideational phase of a suicide plan. EPIC can provide training to any interested group in the community. For more information on QPR Training, please contact email@example.com.
