Substance Abuse Services

At Children & Families of Iowa (CFI), we address substance abuse by involving family and community in finding solutions tailored to each individual. Highly-trained substance abuse professionals help individuals and families develop goals, structure, and positive living environments necessary for success. All levels of care incorporate group, individual and family counseling; psychiatric care and medication management are offered as needed.

Substance abuse services are available at the Northside Family Services Center in Des Moines and Cornerstone Recovery Center located in Ankeny.
