Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

by Bernard, Denise, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 84; 1522559
Abstract (Summary)

Research on families in child welfare, parents in treatment, and families of substance-exposed infants suggests that one to two-thirds of the families involved or at risk of involvement in the child welfare services system in the United States are impacted by parental substance abuse problems. Research over the past decade has documented the importance of developing innovative models for collaborative practice between the fields of child welfare services and substance abuse treatment services. The purpose of this project was to write a grant to develop and fund two Alcohol and Other Drug Specialist positions within a non-profit substance abuse treatment agency co-located in a child welfare services agency. This program's goal is to provide timely and comprehensive substance abuse treatment services for substance involved families in Child Protective Services. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
