This brief describes nine programs and highlights ways they have addressed challenges that rural communities face in serving child welfare-involved parents with substance use issues. In this brief, we do not assess which programs are most effective. Rather, we summarize the context in which these programs operate, their target populations, and how the programs blend funding and collaborate with service systems to help parents with recovery and to help families reunify.
