Day 2 of this training explores ways to engage and support families where there is multi-generational substance use issues, and the impact of adult substance use disorders on children, teens, and young adults in the family.  Best practices to support youth impacted by parental substance use when caregivers have not yet committed to recovery, as well as ways to work with parents/caregivers who are in active recovery, will be explored.  Resources to support both youth impacted by parental substance use disorders and resources to support parents/caregivers in need of treatment and recovery will be discussed.
