Preventing Intergenerational Transmission of Substance Use Disorder

On September 22, 2022, AIR will present Preventing Intergenerational Transmission of Substance Use Disorder, the fifth webinar in a series from the AIR Center for Addiction Research and Effective Solutions (AIR CARES).

This webinar will review the evidence to support an increased focus on parental social determinants of health in the child welfare system in response to parental substance use. We provide considerations from the perspective of policy, programs, and a mother with lived experience to support parents with substance use disorder and interrupt the intergenerational transmission of trauma.

The series, Social Determinants of Addiction: The 4Ps—People, Policy, Programs, and Practice, features experts in the addiction field and focuses on specific social determinants of health and their relationship to substance use disorder and overdose. Each webinar in the series highlights perspectives from experts in policy, practice, programs, and people to support a more holistic response to the overdose epidemic and to examine the interactions between social structures and the people they are designed to support.

Through these connections, we hope to elevate work that is driven by respect and humility, builds community capacity and sustainable relationships, empowers those whose lives are impacted by that work, improves health, and restores justice.

Join us for what we expect to be an engaging conversation.
