This summary highlights how nine programs have addressed challenges to serving child welfare-involved parents with substance use disorders (SUDs), with a particular focus on their applicability to rural communities. It summarizes information from a longer ASPE research brief. This study did not assess program effectiveness. Rather, it summarizes the context in which the programs operate, their target populations, and how the programs blend funding and collaborate to help parents with recovery and help families reunify.
