A brief overview of the Celebrating Familes! curriculum which is an evidence-based, skills building program for youth and families who have been impacted by addiction. The goal of the program is to prevent youth development of substance use disorders while improving the child and family members’s mental and physical health. Trainers from the National Association for Children of Alcoholics work with communities and programs to faithfully implement the 16-week curriculum which has been adopted in over 100 jurisdictions including treatment programs, drug courts, and community organizations. This report is part of the Addiction Policy Forum’s Spotlight series which highlights innovative programs to address the opioid crisis.
