    Jersey and provides leadership in the formulation

    and evaluation of programs and services for
    women. DOW evaluates the effectiveness of program
    implementation and plans for the development of
    new programs and services.

Background
  • A significant proportion of families involved in
    the child welfare system are affected by
    substance use disorders, with national estimates
    ranging from 40 to 80.
  • Children of substance abusing parents are more
    likely to experience sexual, physical, or
    emotional abuse and/or neglect and are more
    likely to be placed in foster care and remain
    there longer than children from non-substance
    abusing families.

10
Background
  • However, research has shown that mothers are more
    likely to be reunified with their children when
    they are able to enter treatment faster, remain
    in treatment longer, and successfully complete at
    least one treatment episode.
  • Furthermore, women tend to have higher rates of
    treatment completion and better outcomes when
    they are allowed to live with their children in
    residential programs and when their treatment
    includes comprehensive and supportive services to
    meet their range of needs.

11
