Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) today announced that service providers in San Francisco received awards totaling over $1 million for substance abuse prevention and treatment from the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. "These awards will help our service providers respond more effectively to the continuing problems in our community," Pelosi said.

A grant of $549,078 was awarded to the Epiphany Center for Families in Recovery to provide safe housing, drug treatment, life skills, and employment training in order to reduce high-risk sexual behavior and intravenous drug use among women in the program.

A grant of $368,341 was awarded to the American Society on Aging to refine, adapt, and test an alcohol abuse prevention intervention in community settings with at-risk older adults.

A grant of $96,123 was awarded to the Community Mental Health Services Department of the San Francisco Department of Public Health for the Family Strengthening program. This program will be designed to strengthen Pilipino families in order to increase family resiliency, reduce familial substance abuse, and increase community capacity to assist families.
