Berks Parents Services Collaborative Program
“Helping women who have a history of drug and alcohol issues make healthy choices for themselves and their children.”
Berks Parents Services Collaborative (BPSC), established in July, 1991, is a maternal addictions program for Berks County women funded by the Council On Chemical Abuse and Community Care Behavioral Health.
The goals of the program include:
- Reduce the number of infants born exposed to alcohol and other drugs
- Empower, educate and link pregnant and postpartum substance abusing women to drug and alcohol treatment and other social service agencies
- Reduce the risk of child abuse and neglect
- Advocate for the clients and their children
- Provide hope
- Remove barriers to success
BPSC services include case management services, service planning, outreach services, educational and life skills groups. BPSC, in conjunction with many other local human service agencies, helps to improve the quality of life for the women and their children.
A Collaborative Committee, made up of agency representatives from CHOR, the Council on Chemical Abuse, Berks County Children and Youth Services, local hospitals, treatment and other social service providers, help guide the program and services offered.
If you are struggling or have a history of chemical dependency and are pregnant and/or parenting children. Please contact the Berks Parents Services Collaborative program for help at (610) 478-9830. Services are confidential.
