This 2007 report from a symposium on family-centered substance use disorder treatment (SUD) sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) describes options for supporting families during SUD treatment along the continuum of care, including residential treatment programs that allow children to reside with their mothers during treatment. The report discusses programmatic and administrative challenges to creating these programs and provides a summary of the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment’s comprehensive treatment model for women and their children.
