This chapter describes an evidence-based intervention for substance-abusing mothers, with emphasis on how its process of change is influenced by relationship and motivation. It first provides an overview of the Parent-Child Assistance Program (PCAP), launched in 1991 at the University of Washington, Seattle as a federally funded research demonstration project designed primarily to help mothers obtain alcohol and drug treatment, stay in recovery, and resolve the complex problems related to their substance abuse. The critical objectives and components of PCAP are discussed, along with its clinical population and the paradox of high-risk and insufficient treatment. A snapshot of retention and promising outcomes of the program is also given. The chapter concludes by considering the PCAP principle emphasizing the personal and professional development of the case manager through intensive and ongoing clinical supervision.
