Be the best parent you can be
Granite Wellness Centers child development program is designed to support young children whose parent or parents (usually a single mother) are in treatment for a substance use disorder. The program provides quality care and a nurturing, safe and loving environment for young children. Little ones in our program find security (they have often lacked), nurturing, and fun. For children ages 7-12, Granite Wellness Programs offer educational support groups to help them to understand addiction and how to make healthier choices for themselves. The program also provides opportunities for parents to engage with their children, and learn developmentally appropriate practices. Learn more about Child Development
