Perinatal Alcohol and Drug Use: Access to Essential Services in 12 California Counties. CPS Report.
Soman, Laurie A.; And Others
A research project acquired and compiled information on the services (from state and federally funded programs in California) available for chemically dependent pregnant and parenting women and young drug-exposed children from birth to age 3. The research methods consisted of a literature review and a survey of 13 key state and federally funded programs financing alcohol and/or drug treatment and recovery services, health care, social services, and early intervention services for young children. Findings showed that: (1) there is a wide gap in services between what is appropriate and necessary and what currently exists; (2) significant variation exists in the types of services available through the programs; (3) the eligibility criteria for services and the process for obtaining eligibility presented problems for the target population attempting to receive the services; (4) service coordination appears to be widespread; (5) data are lacking at both the state and local levels; (6) state budget deficits have resulted in the creation of few new services as well as minimal increase or reduction in funding of existing services. New proposals for funding and/or organizing services were suggested. Policy recommendations were made related to the six areas mentioned above with a view to evolving the model of care described earlier. A major outcome of this project was a family-centered, comprehensive, and coordinated model of care for women, children, and families affected by perinatal alcohol and drug use.
