Sunrise Health Clinics’ “Family First” program is a family-based alternative sentencing program focused on rehabilitating justice-involved families through the use of a Moral Focus curriculum structured in a 9-Step Program of daily classes, wellness and family therapy, and directly applied interventions in a home setting supervised by professionals. This 9-step Program is broken down into (3) Three part sections focused on: Learning, Attempting to Apply Concepts, and Successfully Applying Skills to prevent recidivism in the justice system and support family unification. The purpose of Family First is to provide justice-involved parents and their children or family members the opportunity to break the cycle of incarceration and generational trauma by developing the parenting and life skills to avoid institutionalization while learning how to become a contributing member of society.
