Helping Children Impacted by Parental Substance Use Disorder

Updated: Apr 4

A Resource for Adults Helping Children Affected by Parental Substance Use Disorder

Developed in coordination with Warren County, Ohio, this publication is for adults who come into contact with children impacted by a parent’s addiction and provides information about how to help. It is meant for anyone—teachers, coaches, pastors, relatives, friends, neighbors.

The toolkit offers resources for understanding adverse childhood events, what to look for if you suspect a child might have a parent with a substance use disorder, what you can do to help, and more.
