Strengthening Families

CODI offers a Family Program to parents with children 3 to 10 years old.

We utilize the Strengthening Families curriculum which is a research-based curriculum that teaches and supports basic family interaction skills. Focusing on behavior change and improved communication skills, family members learn and practice effective patterns of relating to each other, limit setting techniques, and positive behavior reinforcement procedures.


Identified outcomes for this program include

  • stronger family bonds
  • reduced substance abuse
  • reduced problematic behaviors in children
  • improvement in school performance

This Strengthening Families inspired program includes evening classes as well as family counseling.
