The National Association of State Alcohol and Drug Abuse Directors (NASADAD), in collaboration with the American Public Human Services Administration (APHSA), have released new resources aimed at improving collaboration between the alcohol and other drug (AOD) and child welfare systems. Research has shown that if left untreated, parental substance use disorders (SUD) can have a negative impact on the entire family. Child who are exposed to substances are at higher risk of maltreatment and child welfare involvement and are twice as likely to develop an SUD themselves. Intentional planning and coordination between state alcohol and other drug (AOD) and child welfare agencies are essential to prevent the negative consequences that SUDs can have on families and prevent children from entering the foster care system. To strengthen the collaboration and relationship between these agencies, the APHSA and the NASADAD launched a workgroup of state child welfare and AOD leaders, resulting in the new resources now available.
