Current Projects

  • Community-based participatory research to better understand the experiences and needs of children and their caregivers. Results of our first research study were published in August 2021.  A second protocol in development will directly assess the needs of children and caregivers influenced by SUD in the family.  
     

  • Harm reduction, including Narcan training to prevent overdose deaths.
     

  • Improving continuity of care by developing partnerships to bridge gaps in services for individuals with SUD and their families. 
     

  • Family support

    • An ongoing weekly Family Recovery Group beginning in early 2022, using a combined educational and peer support model.

    • Development of a caregiver "toolkit" that will include information and practical strategies to aid caregivers as they support children day by day.
