This will be the third and final 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.

Speakers will address prevention and treatment of substance use among pregnant women; ways to mitigate health effects for infants; the way the CPS system responds to substance use and co-occurring disorders among parents; how the criminal justice system’s response to parents’ substance use affects children; prevention, treatment, and recovery strategies; recent state policy changes; and future policy opportunities.

We will meet from 1:00 to 3:00 pm on Tuesday, December 12th at the Texas Hospital Association, located at 1108 Lavaca Street #700 in Austin.
