Helping starts with

Science + Kindness

Welcome

CMC:Foundation for Change puts the power of evidence-based strategies directly into the hands of individuals and communities affected by substance use. Our Invitation to Change Approach takes the best science has to offer (including compassion!) and makes it easy to understand and put into action.

Our Approach

The Invitation to Change Approach

At the core of everything we do at CMC:Foundation for Change is the Invitation to Change Approach (ITC), created by our psychologists to help families and professionals support a person struggling with substance use.

The ITC is based in science and kindness, allowing you to stay connected to your loved one while creating an environment supportive of change. To learn more, visit Our Approach page.

For Families and Loved Ones

As clinicians and researchers, we have been fighting to increase understanding and expand evidence-based treatment options for substance users and their families for over 30 years. Our trainings and materials combine this experience with thousands of hours spent working with communities across the country.
