When Drug Addicts Have Children: Reorienting Child Welfare's ResponseBy:
Douglas J. Besharov
More than alcohol and heroin, crack cocaine threatens the well being of hundreds of thousands of children in America today. Since 1986, it has become a fixture in the lives and neighborhoods of many low-income families.
When Drug Addicts Have Children brings together 28 program administrators, direct service providers, government officials, and scholars--all specialists in child welfare and drug abuse--in a collaborative effort to define new approaches to the complex, seemingly intractable problems associated with substance abuse and families. Readers will find a collection of provocative reports and research that calls for a radical new approach to the care and treatment of children abused and neglected by their drug-addicted parents. A must for all addiction and child welfare professionals!
