Parental addiction affects the well-being of young children—children you may encounter in your work. You have the opportunity to support children and families affected by addiction, in big and small ways. Join us for a series of webinars to gain resources and strategies you can use right away. Each webinar in this series will highlight a unique provider perspective and offer tactics to address their specific needs.

In the first webinar of this series, Sis Wenger, President and CEO of the National Association for Children of Addiction (NACoA), describes the ways parental addiction affects young children. She paints an eye-opening picture of what so many young children experience daily, and offers ways any individual can offer support and care. This webinar lays the foundation for understanding this important issue, and starts with what’s at the heart—a child.
