Primary Caregiver Support

Grandparents as caregivers

Families involved with EPIC have the advantage of receiving support for kinship providers who may not be equipped to deal with the multi-faceted needs of the children in their care, as they are often grandparents. Primary caregivers may also face unexpected challenges when helping children who have witnessed opioid overdose 

Parenting Support

Primary providers will receive support via the Nurturing Parenting Program that has a series of modules related to maintaining safe relationships with biological parents as well as logistical and psychosocial aspects of naloxone administration.
