Hargrove, Elisabeth; And Others
This guide describes a variety of resources that serve young children and their families affected by substance use. It was created to assist state and local program personnel and others to access resources that can assist them in developing comprehensive services for young children and their families who have been affected by alcohol and other drugs. An introduction examines the incidence of substance abuse and the number of babies born prenatally exposed to alcohol and illegal substances. The resources are then presented, organized within three sections: (1) national training and information resources (35 resources listed); (2) state programs and agencies (6 sample agencies listed); and (3) federal funding sources (37 resources listed). An additional section presents information on locating grant funds from federal agencies and from private foundations and corporations. (Contains 12 references.) (JDD)
