Letter to the community

Dear Friends, In this report, we are pleased to share the impact that your investments continue to make in the lives of children and families. The data and stories that follow in this report demonstrate how public investment in human services benefits us all by enhancing opportunities for people of all ages, enriching our quality of life, and supporting our economy. Our staff are at the heart of all that we do at Child & Family and we thank them for their compassion and desire to help others. We also want to recognize our dedicated board members and committee volunteers for their commitment to helping us fulfill our mission. This year our biggest accomplishment and challenge has been the implementation of an agency wide electronic health record. The use of this system will assist us in providing quality care to all our clients and will enable our staff to communicate seamlessly regarding the care of our clients who are enrolled in several programs. Recognition must go out to our fabulous IT department whose expertise, patience and commitment made the implementation possible. We look forward to continuing our efforts to strengthen the community by providing quality programs and top notch mental health services to those in need.

Please consider a gift to help us to continue to fulfill our mission.

Anne Sampaio Executive Director

In-Home Therapy Improving a family’s ability to provide support and promote their child’s healthy functioning within the family. Hello, I am writing to say that I am extremely grateful for the services that your organization has provided to our family. My daughter has been going through a rough time, since about February of last year, and I am sure that it would have been so much more difficult to handle, if it weren’t for the involvement of your organization. In the beginning, she was assigned an In Home Therapy team. They were instrumental in helping my daughter to understand all that was going to happen, as far as her care, and things that needed to be done in order to treat her. As a parent it has been very frustrating dealing with this whole illness for her, as there is not really anything that I am able to do to make my daughter better. The team at CFS also helped myself and the other members of our family to understand what my daughter was going through, and what we could do to help in any way that we could. My daughter remained well for a number of months, unfortunately, she had gotten ill again, and was in need of services again. This time has been much less traumatic to begin with since we knew that we could turn to CFS for support. My daughter was very receptive to receiving help and treatment this time because she had already had such a positive experience with CFS and was very happy to know that she would work again with the same IHT team. I appreciate everything that they do for my daughter and our family. Their role in my daughter’s care is invaluable to me, and I just wanted to say thank you. I can’t stress enough how supportive and helpful it has been having In Home Therapy staff involved in this whole journey to getting my daughter well again. Sincerely, KD

Adoption Journeys Designed to support adoptive families in exploring and understanding their strengths, resources, and needs. We sought out Adoption Journeys at the urging of our therapist at the Attachment Institute of New England. It was rather “late in the game” for us. Zachary was already 17, having been adopted from foster care at age 6. When we were ready for it, Adoption Journeys welcomed us and provided that additional support we needed. I still remember the day they came to our home. We felt a huge weight lift. After that meeting, we had a plan in place. It was solid, something we had not been able to accomplish on our own. Just having this plan got us over the bumps we were feeling at that time. Being a therapeutic parent to a kid who has suffered early childhood trauma is a huge task. It is a series of ups and downs. We learned early on at AINE that it was very important for the parents to be calm, another herculean task. A lot of work was done with me so that I would not get triggered by his behaviors. Adoption Journeys provided the extra support to us as a family. The safety plan calmed us. The respite outings brought us together with other families. The monthly support groups are invaluable. My husband and I attend and come home feeling energized and ready to tackle more. The advice given by Valerie, Chris, and Emily has directly resulted in a better daily life for us. As we enter this “transition” time with Zachary, Adoption Journeys stepped up again. They have created a support group for parents with older, adult children. Many think it ends at 18, but as we are discovering, the delay in their brain maturity and the lack of social skills cause these kids to be in our lives long after 18. This stage is no easier than the others, just different. Having this support group has been integral to keeping us in the therapeutic parenting game.

Our other son, Cameron, attended the support groups and interacted with the children in the respite program. During the outings, he would interact with all of the children. He is now 13 and an incredible kid who loves his older brother, despite all of his behaviors. Zachary has received support from Adoption Journeys in varying forms. He has been given tasks which help him fight the overwhelming shame that controls his life. He knows about the other kids and knows when they are having trouble. He asks about them when he doesn’t go to meetings. He has told me that he sees all of the parents together and realizes that they are all going through the same things. He has also mentioned that he is glad we are his parents. As a Board Member of the Attachment and Trauma Network, Inc., I see post-adoptive support around the world. I take every opportunity to share what Adoption Journeys has done in Massachusetts. It is one of the best out there. Most states don’t have any post-adoptive support. I know of families who want to move here just to obtain the better support. In hindsight, I wish we could have started at Adoption Journeys sooner. While we were not ready, there is a lot of support coming from this organization. When I hear from someone who lives in Massachusetts, my first piece of advice is to call Adoption Journeys. - Stephanie Garde child & family services | 2014 community report


Adult Behavioral Health Provides a full range of treatment for mental health issues.

I was ready to commit suicide. Every time I got sober, I knew if I picked up another drink, I’d just end up sick again. Even while I was working, I was still drinking, but I didn’t realize I was getting worse year after year. Even a pint of vodka in the morning wasn’t enough to make me feel good. I ended up living under bridges, under bushes, and on the side of the road. I went to inpatient about ten times, outpatient about ten times, and detoxes about 50 times. I got sober and went to AA, but I still had the obsession to want another drink. Like all addicts, I always wanted more, no matter what. A couple of old friends called me from Cape Cod, and they invited me here. I was still drinking when I got here. They told me, “You’ve got to slow down!” Suddenly I saw that I was the only one drunk, 24 hours a day. That was the moment I changed. I literally could not slow down. You can’t tell an alcoholic to slow down. Then they told me to go to the Duffy Center where I got a list of agencies, and Child & Family had the shortest waiting list. At first I met with the therapist, who made the appointment with the psychiatrist, Dr. Rodriguez. I told the psychiatrist I’m just having a few here and there. He knew better. “How about no drinking?” he said. I told him I was going to quit on my own. He said, “You might go for a long time, but I think you are going to fail.” That was also a challenge. Not that I wanted him to be wrong, but I wanted to be sober. That meeting made me decide all the more. Besides the drinking, I had high anxiety, PTSD, extreme depression, essential tremor, and other things. I shook so bad my whole body trembled, but they found after I got sober that it had nothing to do with the alcohol.

My friends convinced me to go into the hospital. Then I went to a detox a couple of times, and then back to the hospital again. That time, they detoxed me, keeping me medicated for a few days longer than usual. When I was discharged, I felt human. I didn’t want to feel the pain of withdrawal any more. That final detox was 3 years and 2 months ago: January 28, 2012. I have been coming to CFS for about 5 years. My new therapist has helped me stay sober. I can’t thank her enough for the help she has given me. In the beginning she asked me, “Do you still drink?” I told her I haven’t had a drink for 3 months. Then she said, “So you’re a recovering alcoholic.” I liked the sound of those words “recovering alcoholic.” I said that I would like to say that I’m a recovering alcoholic. Learning patience is part of the process of recovery. I feel kind of normal now. I have to remember that I can’t pick up even one can of beer, because that will start my addiction all over again. My life has been getting better and easier. I’ve been in touch with my family and friends who never would talk to me before. I bought a computer, and I got in touch with my son and his girlfriend. I never thought I would hear from them or talk to them, ever. The best thing is that they let me back into their life. I’ve even talked to my grandchildren, and I might plan a trip to see them pretty soon. - James
