This session highlights agencies that have built their capacity across child welfare, substance abuse treatment and courts, to screen, assess and treat families with substance use disorders. Hear how these sites got started in their collaborative efforts, the steps they took to strengthen their systems, and the technical assistance that has helped them along their way. Each site also shares lessons they have learned about overcoming the barriers to collaboration and to building a network of identification, referral and treatment services. (Author abstract)
