Help for All

Addiction affects the whole family.  At CNCAA, we have specific programs geared towards helping the whole family with the issues of addiction.  Check out the classes we have available.

Strengthening Families

The Strengthening Families Program (SP) is a national and international evidence-based family skills training program found to significantly improve parenting skills and family relationships. Program by Dr. Karol Kumpfer

  • Transforming Families
  • Improved social skills in youth
  • Family bonding and enriched relationships

A progressive skill-based curriculum introduces experiential learning through role-playing, demonstration, and simulation to implement boundaries, rules, and respectful monitoring practices with proven results in reducing problem behaviors, chronic absenteeism/delinquency, and prevention of alcohol and drug abuse.

Reduce problem behaviors Parents strengthen bonds with their children through consistent engagement, proactive parental monitoring, and effective discipline skills.

Family dynamics transform through the incremental skill-building learned through constructive coaching that engages families to work and collaborate. Parents also learn stress reduction, problem-solving and anger management skills.


Start the healing with an intervention. Getting a loved one to agree to accept help and finding support services for all family members are the first steps toward healing. 

When the addicted person is reluctant to seek help, sometimes family members, friends, and associates come together out of concern and love, to help the addict see how his/her drinking or drug use is affecting his/her life and the lives of so many people around him/her.

This is called an intervention. When carefully prepared and done with the guidance of a trained specialist, the family, friends, and associates are usually able to convince their loved one to get help. 

People with alcohol or other drug dependence problems can and do recover. Intervention is often the first step.

If you would like assistance in planning, preparing for, and implementing an intervention, please call. There is a $500 fee for this service.

Intervention Family Education Program

When Someone You Love Has an Alcohol or Drug Problem……Intervention Helps

It is sometimes very difficult to recognize an addiction problem in a spouse, parent, child or other loved one. You may need the help of a knowledgeable professional and the support of others with the same experience. At CNCAA’s Family Education Program, you’ll gather the information and resources you need to help your family deal with addiction. You will receive tools to get you started on the road to recovery.

The Family Education Program is free and offered monthly at CNCAA. It consists of 3 sessions, 1.5 hours each, and is held once a week for three weeks. We do not charge a fee for the Family Education Program, but donations are welcome.

What Does the Family Education Program Offer? We’ll discuss and learn about the disease of alcoholism and addiction, how it affects family members, and what to do about it. We encourage you to attend all three sessions in order to receive the most benefit.

What is discussed within the group is kept confidential. Nothing is discussed outside of the group. 

All sessions are held at the Council on Alcoholism and Addictions, 219 West 2nd Street, Grand Island.

Pre-registration is encouraged but not required.  Contact us to get more information or to register.
