When a parent drinks too much alcohol... What kids want to know (14 mins)

Read this entire resource, which covers how to talk to children of adults who drink too much. The way the questions are answered in the resource can be applied to other types of substance use as well (besides alcohol), providing that the relevant information for the substance is given instead. You should have become more familiar with the relevant information about the other substances as you have progressed through this NextGenU training. When treating someone with psychoactive substance use disorder, address the families’, caregivers’, and children's questions and concerns, and involve them in the care plan and support when the patient has provided their consent (as needed).
