About the Course:
Research suggests that adults with histories of child abuse and neglect are at high risk for developing substance abuse disorders and that childhood abuse and neglect may negatively affect clients’ chances for recovery from substance abuse. Along with these problems is the increased likelihood of substance-abusing parents abusing their own children. In response to these issues, this Treatment Improvement Protocol, Substance Abuse Treatment for Persons With Child Abuse and Neglect Issues, presents information to assist alcohol and drug counselors and other treatment providers to work more effectively with adults who have histories of childhood abuse or neglect and adults who abuse or who are at risk for abusing their own children. This course covers Chapter 1 only.
