Prescription Painkillers: The Latest (and Greatest) Threat to Child Welfare

Presented by

Shaun Barry and Will Jones, SAS

About this talk

The abuse of prescription drugs continues to rise across the United States, and the impact on child welfare is great for both children and those parents who abuse. Recent national data shows parental alcohol or drug abuse was the reason for removal of almost 31% of children placed in out-of-home care in 2012 and has continued to rise. SAS will share how prescription drug monitoring programs can be used to change the way systems address the problem and provide for better informed decision making and innovative solutions.
