Beyond the High: How Parental Drug Use Impacts Children


In this webinar, participants will learn that the impact of parental substance is more than the exposure to the chemicals themselves, but how substance use impairs parental decision-making and the quality of attachment. Participants will gain an understanding of attachments and attunement for young children with caregivers and why this is an essential building block to early childhood development and future mental health stability.
