National Prevention Science Coalition to Improve Lives
Improving Outcomes for Children of Caregivers
with Substance Use Disorders
Funding for the project is provided in full by the Partnership for Better Health
In October of 2019, the NPSC was awarded $99,690 to carryout this project with local partners in Cumberland Perry Counties, PA. Local partners include The Cumberland-Perry Drug and Alcohol Commission, The Carlisle Early Education Center, The RASE Project, Hempfield Behavioral Health and the Dickinson College Center for Civic Engagement and Action. The project provides evidence-based parenting support to caregivers in recovery from substance use disorders to prevent negative outcomes for their children and decrease the risk of caregiver relapse. Additionally, we make high-quality continuing education available to professionals serving these families, strengthen the support system for all parents by promoting existing parenting interventions, adding new interventions and introducing home-based parenting interventions for parents in recovery.
