Free text This book brings together 28 program administrators, direct service providers, government officials, and scholars--all specialists in child welfare and drug abuse--in a collaborative effort to define new approaches to the complex, seemingly intractable problems associated with substance abuse and families. Readers will find a collection of reports and research that calls for a new approach to the care and treatment of children abused and neglected by their drug-addicted parents. Some of the contributions are : HORN Wade, Implications for policy-making ; BARTH Richard, Long-term in-home services ; MASSINGA Ruth, Long-term foster care ; JOHNSON Ivory, Kinship care ; APSLER Robert, The need for better research.
