CRI and Hetty's Collaborative Work

  • Hettys is delivering family support on behalf of CRI to families across Nottinghamshire where the service user is engaged in treatment.
  • As part of Hetty's collaborative work with CRI, Hetty's are facilitating a specialist programme called M-PACT Moving Parent and Children Together:

M-PACT supports children/young people aged 8-17 who are experiencing the effects of parental substance misuse within the family. The programme offers a 'Whole Family Approach', working with parents and children from up to eight families at any one time in different group combinations.

The programme is made up of 10 sessions, this includes an individual family assessment, eight consecutive weekly core sessions that last 2.5 hours and a family review session. The programme is run by experienced professionals who work with the young people and parents to reduce the harmful impact that parental substance misuse and addiction has on family life.
