Major Reports in Alcohol and Other Drugs

This list is a compilation of major reports and findings regarding alcohol and other drugs during the past 5 years. While we realize there have been many noteworthy reports and monographs, this list highlights topics that are of significant importance to the Child Welfare League of America. To view a publication, please click on the title. Note: Some documents may require Adobe Acrobat to view.
  • Navigating the Pathways: Lessons and Promising Practices in Linking Alcohol and Drug Services with Child Welfare - To determine the success of the collaborations, study authors Sidney Gardner and Nancy Young examined client intake; screening and assessment; client engagement and retention in treatment; cross-system agreement on approaches to relapse; and responses to clients' progress in treatment.

  • Blending Perspectives and Building Common Ground - from the Secretary of Health and Human Services provides information on substance abuse and child protection. With the implementation of the Adoption and Safe Families Act (ASFA, P.L. 105-89) and renewed emphasis on achieving permanency for children in the child welfare system, finding effective ways to address concurrent substance abuse and child maltreatment problems in families has become very important.

  • No Safe Haven: Children of Substance-Abusing Parents - CASA's groundbreaking report is the most comprehensive analysis ever undertaken of the impact of substance abuse on child abuse and neglect. CASA's report illustrates how parental abuse of alcohol and drugs has overwhelmed the nation's child welfare system and seriously compromised its ability to protect children. The report calls for an overhaul of the child welfare system and provides an answer to the critical question of when a child should be removed permanently from the home.

  • Alcohol and Other Drug Survey of State Child Welfare Agencies - In early 1997, the Child Welfare League of America (CWLA), conducted a survey of the state public child welfare agencies to obtain a baseline measure of the types of policies, programs, and data collection efforts currently in place to support chemically involved children and families, with a special emphasis on children and youth in out-of-home care.
