You can adjust the shoes outward on the rear by removing the wheels and drums, then above the axle but below the wheel cylinder you will see an arm that is horizontal, pushing both of the shoes outwards. There should be an adjustment nut that you can turn to extend the arm to push the shoes out.

SOURCE: How do you adjust the parking brake on a 2002 Chevy Blazer

This is not a hard answer but I couldn't find it anywhere either so I figured it out.
On the drivers side of the vehicle between the door and the rear wheel, just under the vehicle (outside of the frame) you will see the cable. Locate the nut (it's on a lolong screw-the front of the screw is facing the front of the vehicle) About 6 inches toward the read of that screw attach a vise grip. Then rotate the nut with a 12mm box wrench and shorten the cable. It takes a lot of turns so after every 10 or so check the parking brake pedal. If you are going in the right direction it should stop further fromn the floor each time. The manual says adjust to the point the pedal travels 1/2 way to the floor.Tip- Lube the nut and screw before starting. The nut can be rusted on and may snap if you try too hard. Mine was nice and easy to turn and now the pedal stops 1/2 way to the floor.

My brake pedal went to the floor, brought it in...They told me it was the Master Cylinder. They changed it and put in a brand new master cylinder but it still seems like the brake pedal goes further t

The extra brake travel can be;
1. air still in the brake lines and need bleeding
2. if there are brake drums on the rear they may be out of adjustment
3. if there are warped brake disc or caliper problems that will add to the brake travel

Is the problem your brake pedal is to low There is an adjustment for the brake light switch at the top of the pedal that could affect pedal hight slightly But if down a 1/2 inch or so i would suspect some kind of a problem with the brake system it self how well do the brakes stop the vehicleand have you noticed more of a drop in the pedal over time?

How do i adjust the hand brake on my 2002 honda civic after replacing the rear drum brakes?

Do not adjust the handbrake, it is not necessary. You can adjust the new brake shoes for a better brake pedal and this will also take care of the hand brake. This will have to be done with wheels off and lugs reinstalled to keep the brake drums in place. Sometimes the adjuster is difficult to reach and do not over tighten. When the rear brakes are properly adjusted you should have 3 to 4 clicks on the handbrake.
