Overview of the Effect of Substance Use on Texas Children and Families

  • TCFC at Texas Hospital Association 1108 Lavaca Street, #700 Austin, TX, 78701 United States (map)

This will be the first in a series of events addressing substance use and its impact on children and families, a critical issue nationwide and here in Texas. This series will explore data trends, programs that serve children and families, best practices, and policy opportunities, and will be a chance for stakeholders to share their experiences and feedback.

Texans Care for Children staff will share what we know and what we don’t know from data on substance use in Texas; the connection to Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs); local, state, and federal programs for addressing substance use; and other subjects.

We will meet from 1:00 to 3:00 pm on Tuesday, October 10th at the Texas Hospital Association, located at 1108 Lavaca Street #700 in Austin.
