Adolescent Community Reinforcement Approach/Assertive Continuing Care (A-CRA/ACC) Program

Funded by the Department of Children and Families (DCF) and the Judicial Branch Court Support Services Division (JBCSSD), the A-CRA/ACC Program serves children and families referred by the funding agency, the New Britain Courts and by local schools.  Families may also self-refer to this program.  CJR’s A-CRA/ACC Program is an evidence-based outpatient substance abuse treatment program providing 90 days of clinical-based recovery (A-CRA) followed by 90 days of community-based recovery.  Serving 75 young people annually, ages 12 to 17, the A-CRA/ACC model provides a combination of office and home-based services that focus on the unique needs of the youth and families served.
