Fred Muench, PhD is the President of the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids. In January, 2019 the Partnership and the Center for Addiction merged. The mission of these organizations is to transform how our nation addresses addiction.

Fred will present on family-based interventions to engage parents and caregivers, as well as data on the resources the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids offers for families addressing every aspect of substance use and addiction, from prevention to recovery. Learn about the support and guidance offered through the latest science-based information designed to empower parents and caregivers. Fred will also discuss how the merger with the Center on Addiction now provides the research necessary to advance effective prevention and treatment strategies advocating for lifesaving policy changes with state and local partners. Through these initiatives the Partnership and Center on Addiction aspire to change the national conversation around addiction so that no one will feel alone or ashamed to seek help, and everyone can have access to the care they need and deserve.

The NLM Resources related to substance use disorder that are highlighted during the webinar are MedlinePlus, Opiate Addiction and Treatment Portal, and the Graphic Medicine Book Club. Also, an extensive substance use disorder resource list that includes materials from NLM and partner organizations will also be made available with the recording link and webinar slides.

Learning Objectives:
• Learn the latest research on parenting and caregiver interventions for substance use prevention and intervention.
• Learn about how the Partnership is infusing, best-in-class science with compassion from prevention to sustained recovery, to support families caring for a child or loved one struggling with substance use.
