Children Affected by Parental Substance Misuse

The materials in this e-module are designed to support practitioners in both children’s and adult services who may come across adults who may be substance misusing.

Whilst some staff roles will involve regular contact with families where substance misuse is an issue for others it will be less frequent but none the less important to be aware of the potential impact on children and young people when it does occur.  The module will look at both drug and alcohol misuse and what we can do to support children and families.
